Wasabi and Ginger are included, please enjoy our Sushi with these items.
Wasabi originally is a member of the Brassicaceae family, which includes cabbages, horseradish, and mustard. It is also called Japanese horseradish, although it is not actually from the
horseradish species of plants. In sushi preparation, sushi chefs usually put the wasabi between the fish and the rice, because covering wasabi until served preserves its flavor.
Effects Cancer protection Wasabi is a rich source of chemicals known as isothiocyanates. These are the same anti-cancer chemicals found in broccoli and cabbage. Anti-inflammatory effects The same isothiocyanates that give wasabi its cancer fighting capabilities also help to reduce inflammation by preventing platelet application. Reduction in heart disease and stroke risk Because wasabi inhibits platelet aggregation, it's thought that it may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke by preventing abnormal clot formation. <From Wikipedia>
Ginger is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice.
Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice. Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes.
In limited studies, ginger was found to be more effective than placebo for treating nausea caused by seasickness, morning sickness and chemotherapy, although ginger was not found superior to placebo for pre-emptively treating post-operative nausea. Some studies advise against taking ginger during pregnancy, suggesting that ginger is mutagenic, though some other studies have reported antimutagenic effects. Other preliminary studies showed that ginger may affect arthritis pain or have blood thinning and cholesterol lowering properties, but these effects remain unconfirmed. <From Wikipedia>
