About our Freeze Dried Real Wasabi Powder
Most "wasabi Isn't! You've probably heard or read an article about the so-called "wasabi" commonly available in markets and at 99% of sushi bars, even in Japan. That horseradish/mustard mixture that we have come to know as wasabi, is called wasabi because it is the closest substitute for the real thing. The fact that the word wasabi is a commonly accepted name for its substitute, makes it challenging for the few farmers who actually grow and import "Real Wasabi" to explain the difference to consumers.
Authentic Real Wasabi is extremely sought after, rare, expensive, and hard to find. There are only a few dozen growers and suppliers worldwide, as wasabi requires very specific growing conditions and takes a long time to cultivate. While the freshly grated rhizomes are the ideal way to enjoy Real Wasabi, our 100% pure freeze-dried powder is the next best thing. Give the Gift of Authenticity (to yourself or others) and follow the directions to make a paste and appreciate the "Fiery Taste ❤ Smooth Finish".
