Wasabi contains isothiocyanates (ITCs), which makes it a natural anti-parasitic food. That is why it can effectively work to protect against anisakis parasites, which is often found in seafood like cod, salmon, and squid. Consuming foods like these raw may cause health issues like gastrointestinal issues, bowel obstruction and allergies. Enjoying raw fish recipes with wasabi may help protect your health.
