Japanese Diet Information


Wasabi

Wasabi, sometimes referred to “Japanese horse radish” is eaten with sushi and some other Japanese dishes such as soba. Wasabi is spicy hot, but unlike chillies the hotness only remains for a short period of time. If you are eating wasabi for the first time, only eat a small amount – you have been warned!

Researchers have studied the health benefits of wasabi and have found that it can help prevent blood clotting, cancer and even asthma. Other research has also found that wasabi can even help prevent dental cavities.
