I noticed that my mustard oil (of indian brands, as bought outside india, from specialty grocers carrying indian ingredients) tends to foam/bloom much more than other strongly heated oils when adding dried spices, gram flour and similar ingredients.

Is this an innate behaviour of this oil or a sign of an adulterated oil? If it is innate, what is the scientific reason behind this behaviour?
