Wasabi is very low in cholesterol and sodium and a source of dietary fiber and vitamin C.
It is also a good source of Vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, potassium & manganese.
Its unique characteristic besides a sweet pungency is the medicinal value of elements
extracted from WASABI which acts as an antidote for food poisoning.
It is unclear how much and how often you should be eating fresh wasabi to encourage
all of these benefits but research continues.
