Japanese Horseradish

Japanese Horseradish
Wasabi is a root plant with a pleasant aroma and a sharp, fiery flavour. In early 17th century Japan, it became a popular accompaniment to sushi, promoting the spread of its cultivation. Wasabi is available fresh, and can be grated like horseradish, as a paste or in powder form. It is also mixed with soy sauce and used as a condiment with sashimi and sushi. When used for seasoning, wasabi stimulates the appetite and is also known to prevent food poisoning.

Tube wasabi is now a household item in Japan and beyond thanks to S&B Foods, the first company to launch it, in 1972. Before then, wasabi had to be freshly grated or made up from powder with water; however, fresh wasabi was expensive and the powder inconvenient. In response, S&B proposed the idea of dispensing wasabi from a tube, a convenience ensuring just the right amount anytime. Tube condiments quickly became an indispensable part of home cooking, and today they account for about half of all condiments and spices sold in Japan.
