Mustard greens

Excellent choice for greens. High in calcium, but somewhat high in goitrogens. Best when cut into larger pieces or strips. Finely chop or discard stems. Store cut, dried pieces in plastic storage bag with other greens wrapped in paper towels. Squeeze air out of bag.
Ca:p 2.4:1, Pro: 2.7%, Fat: 0.2%, Water: 91%, Fiber: 3.3%
STAPLE GREEN

Anything that says staple can be for a gut load. Most of the leafy stuff can be dehydrated and frozen to be used as a powder.

Whew! I was worried you were asking if a diet of frenchs mustard would be sufficient for gutload :)

Sounds like you're doing fine. I use a lot of mustard greens in my gutload plan. Crickets are nuts for it. IMO no one should be forced to eat yellow mustard. Not even bugs :)

Depending on all the other stuff that is in mustard, it does have turmeric root in it which gives it it's bright yellow color.

"Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives ballpark mustard its bright yellow color."

Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Turmeric was traditionally called "Indian saffron" because of its deep yellow-orange color and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye."

Here is a link at how turmeric root is considered a super food:
