So, what is artificial wasabi flavor?

Artificial wasabi flavor is a synthetic compound created to mimic the taste and aroma of the wasabi plant. The flavor is commonly used in food products, such as sushi, sauces, and snacks, to provide a spicy and pungent flavor that resembles authentic wasabi. Unlike real wasabi, which is derived from the stem of the Wasabia japonica plant, artificial wasabi flavor is typically made from a blend of horseradish, mustard, and food coloring. This ingredient is often preferred due to its convenience, affordability, and longer shelf life, while still delivering a similar taste experience to real wasabi.
