The truth is, most so called wasabi isn't, and the majority of products claiming to contain wasabi don't.  What typically passes for "wasabi" in most establishments is a mixture of horseradish, food coloring, mustard, corn starch and sadly, is a mere shadow of the real deal. 

You may already know that.  Maybe you're interested in where organic wasabi grows and how it serves up such unique thrills to our taste buds, or perhaps you've heard of wasabi's promising health benefits that have the scientific world buzzing...

If the memorable Fiery Taste, Smooth Finish of authentic wasabi is your quest, you've come to the right place, but be forewarned ;-)    Like exposure to fine wines, one taste of Real Wasabi™ products may leave you forever dissatisfied with "faux wasabi" imitations.
