Wasabi is a variety of green horseradish grown only in Japan and the only place you will find it fresh. Wasabi powder has a sharp flavor that's a bit hotter than the familiar white horseradish.Wasabi powder provides a nice change of pace from chillies. It provides heat, but has more of an herbal overtone and dissipates more quickly.
Apart from its use as a condiment with sushi and wasabi is sometimes rolled into sushi as one of its elements. A dab of wasabi paste can be equally interesting served alongside sea vegetables or root vegetables. A little of its pungent flavor can also add a delightful bite to dressings.
Wasabi is a rich source of chemicals known as isothiocyanates. These are the same anti-cancer chemicals found in broccoli and cabbage. Researchers hope that wasabi may be used in the future to fight inflammation associated with such diseases as arthritis, asthma, and allergic reactions.
