For those of you who have never seen a wasabi rhizome. I have included a picture below.
Please note that this picture is copyright of New Zealand Wasabi Limited. Please respect that.
The correct name of the plant is Wasabia japonica. These are a member of the brassica family and take up to 3 years to grow. The ones from New Zealand Wasabi Limited are grown in running water and are therefore Sawa Wasabi. These have been shown to have higher levels of cancer killing ingredients than the more common ground grown wasabi (or horseradish).
For those of you on a wholefood diet, then you can get all the benefits that the wasabi active ingredients give you (see http://www.wasabi.co.nz/product_benefits.html) by consuming these fresh wasabi rhizomes.
if you want to know more about getting some of these New Zealand Wasabi rhizomes then go to their website and ask for more information.
