The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows passengers to bring one carry-on bag, plus one personal item such as a briefcase, purse, or laptop. You can also bring liquids in amounts of less than 3.4 ounces (or 100 mL), but only if they're in your quart-sized ziplock plastic baggie. So what happens if you have mustard packets?
While you're at it, why not also bring ketchup? What about hot sauce? Or even mustard? As long as you have a carry-on bag and keep the liquids in a 1-quart plastic zip-top bag, you’re good to go.
Mustard is an oil-based condiment that can be made into a liquid when combined with water. According to the liquids rule, this makes it a food item that can be carried on your flight while traveling by air.
You can bring mustard on a plane.
Mustard is a liquid food item, and liquids are prohibited in your carry-on bags. However, mustard is not considered a liquid food item and it's allowed in both checked bags and carry-ons. That said, if you want to be extra safe with your condiments (and who doesn't?), there's no harm in putting your mustard in a plastic bag before packing it away. A little plastic wrap never hurt anyone!
A mustard jar is considered a liquid food item.
This means that if you are carrying conventional mustard, you will most likely be required to bring it in your carry-on bag. According to TSA regulations, liquids (including all types of condiments and sauces) have to be in containers that hold less than 3 ounces and fit inside a clear plastic bag that can be sealed shut.
You may bring the following items on board:
There are a number of issues with bringing mustard on the plane.
First and foremost, not every country has a strict ban on liquid food items; in some countries, you can bring mustard as long as it's in a sealed container.
However, many countries do have their own rules about how much liquid you can bring on the plane (and what kind), and these rules vary from country to country.
Because mustard is considered a liquid food item by the TSA in most countries, it will not be allowed on board your flight unless it's packed into your checked baggage or carried in its original packaging (like this).
If there's any chance that your mustard could spill during transport—say, if your bag got jostled around at all during boarding time—you should avoid packing it in your carry-on luggage so that you don't risk having to throw away expensive clothing or toiletries when they get ruined by spilled condiments!
Mustard and ketchup packets are considered liquid food items and must be in a 3-1-1 baggie. They are not allowed in your carry-on luggage, so if you want to bring them on the plane, they must be packed in checked baggage.
Mustard is typically considered safe to bring on a plane because of its small size and lack of liquid content, but there may be restrictions as to how much can be brought on board. It's always best to check with your airline before packing it in your suitcase or carrying it onto the plane itself.
You can bring mustard with you on the plane, but only in miniature sizes. Condiments like ketchup and mayonnaise are considered liquids and can't be brought on to a flight unless they're in your 3-1-1 Ziploc baggie. However, mustard is not considered a liquid food item. So if it's in a small container—or even just sprinkled onto your food instead of squeezed out of the bottle—you should have no problem bringing it with you onto the plane.
You should also know that some airlines allow passengers to bring their own food on board as long as it doesn't take up more than three ounces or 100ml (3 tablespoons) per person. This could be helpful if there aren't any condiments available at your destination airport!
The short answer is: yes! You can bring mustard in your hand luggage.
Mustard is a condiment made from ground mustard seeds that are usually mixed with water, vinegar, or other liquids to make a paste. Mustard is commonly used as a flavoring in salad dressings, sauces, and marinades. It's also used as an ingredient in pickles and other food products.
Mustard powder is often made with turmeric, which can stain clothing if it comes into contact with them. To avoid this problem, it's best to keep your mustard powder in a container that seals tightly and keeps it from spilling if you accidentally spill some on yourself or your luggage.
The amount of mustard powder that you can bring in your hand luggage depends on where you're traveling from and going. If you're coming from an EU country, then one container of mustard powder weighing no more than 100g per person will be allowed (for example one small jar).
If you're not coming from an EU country but are going there through an EU airport on your way to another destination (for example: going to Paris), then two containers totaling no more than 50g per person will be allowed (for example two small jars).
So we’ve determined that mustard is not a liquid, and you can bring it on the plane as long as it is in small enough portions so that you don’t have more than 3.4 ounces of any one type of liquid condiment with you. You do not have to put mustard in your 3-1-1 baggie, and it does not count towards the number of liquids you are allowed to carry onto the plane if you use your larger carry-on luggage.
