    What is wasabi?

    Wasabi is now a very popular food supplement, which is designed to add savor to the dish. Today, wasabi is served in modern Japanese restaurants, but the history of this mustard has more than one century. In this article, we will look at what wasabi is and where it came from.

    What is wasabi

    Wasabi is a perennial herbaceous plant. Its rhizome is used as a seasoning, mainly in Japanese cuisine. It is believed that wasabi is translated as "Japanese horseradish." Moreover, the plant itself is not horseradish, but only belongs to the same family as it.

    Currently, wasabi is used not only in the food industry, but also in medicine, in particular, in dentistry, and also oncology.

    Wasabi history

    For the first time, the wasabi root was eaten at the end of the 14th century in the area of ​​Suzaku. According to legend, the root of this plant was presented as a gift to the shogun. Later, the plant spread throughout Japan and began to be eaten everywhere. As now, it was prepared by grinding the root of the plant and subsequent drying.True, now the preparation of wasabi has acquired an industrial scale and more and more often the raw material for its manufacture is powder.

    It is worth noting that the root of the present wasabi, which grows only in Japan under special conditions, costs about 200 euros per kilogram. The ancient Japanese used wasabi as an antiseptic, as a means of combating parasites and simply as a flavoring agent.
