Our Organic Horseradish Powder is hot, sharp, and ready to easily add a deliciously spicy-kick to your favorite recipes. Made from 100% organic horseradish root, which is dried and then ground into powder, it is best used in sauces and dishes that don‰۪t require cooking, as it will reduce the heat of the horseradish. This all-natural horseradish powder has not undergone any chemical processing and has been directly sourced to ensure its peak level of spicy flavor and pungent fragrance.
Horseradish is believed to be from Central Europe, but quickly made its way around the known world, with the Egyptians and Greeks using it as early as 1500 BC as both an addition to food and as a medicine. By the 1600s, the English working class was enjoying horseradish as a standard condiment for beef and oysters. In later centuries, early settlers brought horseradish to the new world, where it was growing wild by the mid 1800s. Today, horseradish enjoys widespread commercial use around the world, and has become a popular replacement for the far more difficult to cultivate‰ÛÓbut similar in taste‰ÛÓwasabi.
Horseradish is low in fat and calories, yet high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. It is a gastric stimulant, which can aid digestion and increase appetite. It has moderately high amounts of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps to remove free radicals from the body. It contains compounds that are also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and can soothe the nerves, reducing some types of pain. Horseradish can also act as a diuretic.
Using at Home
Horseradish is most commonly added to sour cream or mayonnaise to create a hot, spicy dipping sauce for food. It is best used in sauces and other dishes that don‰۪t require cooking, because the cooking process breaks down the heat in the horseradish. If you want the flavor of horseradish without the powerful bite, you may want to consider adding it to cooked dishes or sauces, so you get a milder result. To create a spicy shrimp dip, add horseradish to ketchup, or create a beautiful meat accompaniment by mixing it with sour cream. For a hot and spicy beverage, try adding some horseradish to a bloody Mary or Caesar. You can also use it to create your own wasabi variation for dipping homemade sushi rolls!
