Wasabi Root Nutrients and Health Benefits

Wasabi Root.Many people are used to seeing wasabi in a form of a green paste and usually by sushi dishes. But in real life Wasabi is pretty much another Vegetable plant that is also known as Japanese Horseradish, or Wasabia Japonica, or Cochlearia wasabi, or Eutrema japonica. Wasabi is a member of the Brassicaceae family, in other words, it’s in the same family as Mustard, Horseradish, and Cabbage. Typically Wasabi is used as a condiment, especially for sushi and/or rice. Since it’s pretty difficult and expensive to grow and keep wasabi plants, people began to make a very similar tasting product called Western Wasabi which consists of Western Horseradish, Mustard, and Green Food Coloring.

Usually people can buy the Wasabi roots, Wasabi leaves, or Wasabi paste. The root should normally be grated, ground, or sliced before consuming it. When you decide to enjoy some of the Wasabi Paste with your sushi or other foods, then make sure that you don’t wait for too long before eating it because the flavor of Wasabi in Wasabi paste begins to evaporate after about 15 minutes.
