What's the difference between real and fake wasabi? Which one is better?

Wasabi is a plant that has various phytonutrients (healthy substances found in plants). It is usually added to foods as a spice. Its “hot” taste is similar to hot mustard or horseradish rather than being like chili peppers.


  • May have anticancer effects

  • Has potent antimicrobial properties

  • Can support the cardiovascular system

  • Can support the respiratory system

  • Has anti-inflammatory effects

  • A powerful antioxidant

  • Can help thin mucus

Where to get it

True wasabi is very hard to grow and is very expensive. Most wasabi available unfortunately is fake. You can get it at a health food store or order it online, but there is no guarantee that it would be true, original wasabi.
