Wasabi, Pure Namida Powder

Most wasabi powder is a blend of mustard, horseradish, and color, but this fine powder is made from the pure ground root of the Namida wasabi plant. It has a surprisingly delicate aroma and a pungently sharp flavor, excellent for making wasabi paste for sushi or mixing into dipping sauces, salad dressings, or mayonnaise.


Wasabi has an eye-watering punch of heat, which makes the name of this type of wasabi appropriate: “namida” means drop of water, or tears.  The delicate flavor is easily destroyed by heat, so use this pure wasabi powder in cold dishes and sauces. The flavor of wasabi pairs particularly well with fish, avocado, ginger, and soy sauce.
To fully release its flavor, it should be added to a liquid and left for about 15 minutes. Wasabi is best stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
