Mike has been eating wasabi peas because of the health benefits. Wasabi is known for its anticancer benefits. The Japanese eat it with their raw fish because of its antibiotic and antiparasitic properties. Doctors also find is useful in fighting asthma and bronchitis. Wasabi is described as being "hot and fiery without burning," which changes to a sweetness that lingers in the mouth. Anyhow, Mike and I enjoy them.
The white wasabi peas that you find in the health food stores are much better for you than the green-dyed wasabi peas in the grocery stores. The green-dyed peas also have sugar, salt, palm oil and, of course, food dyes. Buy the white!
Have a nice day. Many blessings ~ Kathie
