Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia japonica (Wasabi) Powder
is this special?
knows about Wasabi. It is normally described as the fiery hot paste served with
sushi. It is a dark green in colour when mixed to a paste, and looks like
Avocado. It has gained urban myth status as a snorting powder (certainly not
recommended), and is often used as a sinus clearer with naive sushi eaters who
don’t know any better – much to the amusement of everybody else.
Why is Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia
japonica powder so different?
only contains one ingredient – Wasabia japonica rhizome. There’s that
word again – so I shall explain what it is. Wasabia japonica is a root
plant that grows above ground. The root looks like a knobbly green carrot
snaking around on top of the ground. This root is called the rhizome, the other
parts of the plant do not contain the flavour and punch that the rhizome does.
It is for that reason that we only use the rhizome in our Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia japonica powder. You get the best because we make sure you only get the rhizome.
can we be so sure that you only get the rhizome? Because we grow, process and
package all our own products. How many other suppliers can say that?
Ø Our Wasabia japonica plants are all grown organically and naturally in
running water. This type of wasabi is known as SAWA wasabi, and is the best
that you can get.
grow our Namida® Pure Wasabia japonica in Clean, Green New Zealand using natural
rainwater. As New Zealand is the country that has the lowest pollution loading
in the world, together with our filtering systems we ensure that you get what
you want most – 100% Pure Wasabi!
filtered rainwater ensures that we do not need to use pesticides, fungicides or
herbicides to keep the plants alive as they do when the wasabi is grown in the
ground. This inferior type of wasabi is known as Oka wasabi.
Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia japonica powder is freeze-dried rather than heat-treated.
This ensures that all the volatile flavours and goodness are retained in the
powder and not driven off by the heating process.
store all our finished Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia japonica powder in a
freezer until we ship it to you. As a free flow powder you can take and use
what you want without fear of losing the flavours – so long as you seal the
container and put it back into the freezer.
flavour of the Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia japonica is different to
the coloured Horseradish that is normally served. It has a real punch into the
sinuses, and a very pleasant delicate aftertaste that melts off the tongue. The
sinus jolt is almost instantaneous, but goes just as quickly – leaving no after
effects. Except maybe a tear from the corner of the eye, and a shocked
expression. The name of our product is Namida® – meaning tear – can’t say
you haven’t been warned!
the end of the day, the fact that we are fanatical to ensure that you get the
very best that can be produced is why Namida® 100% Pure Wasabia
japonica powder is different from everything else on the market.
