    Product weight: 25g

    Wasabi is the hot and stimulating green paste that lends a characteristic, pungent taste to sushi dishes, dressings and dipping sauces. The wasabi plant, sometimes called Japanese horseradish, has long been used in Japan as an essential condiment for serving with sushi, soba and tofu and more recently to flavour dressings, dips and snacks.

    Wasabi is a member of the Brassicaceae family which include cabbages, horseradish and mustard. It is the stem and not the root which is used to make the condiment wasabi. It has been cultivated in Japan since the 16th Century and it grows naturally along shaded riverbeds in mountain valleys in Japan. It takes two years to mature and is very perishable.

    Traditional vs Conventional Wasabi

    Clearspring Wasabi powder contains real wasabi root, whereas most wasabi products consist of mustard or horseradish with green dyes and other additives. You can recognise its authenticity by its pale grey-green colour, which contrasts with the brighter green of dyed wasabi.

Decided to find out what it was

Knew nothing about Wasabi, decided it was worth a try and love it

Perfect Wasabi powder

Lovely Wasabi powder. I made a Wasabi Lotus flower with mine for my sushi night.

Bob Lloyd
The best

I love this wasabi as it is pure and not adulterated with colourings and sweeteners. For best results follow the instructions but just remember that a little goes a long way!

Good taste, easy to create

Nice tasting Wasabi - that signature firey kick. Easy to mix and although the pot seems small, a little goes a long way. Good value.
