Horseradish is a bona fide super food. It's a particularly good idea to add it to your diet in the winter, as it's high in Vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant; has antibiotic properties that can kill bacteria in the throat, and can help clear mucous in the sinuses and nose. It also contains glucosinolates, which help the liver detoxify and eliminate carcinogens. We hope you fortify yourself in these remaining winter months with this humble but powerful root, as it has been a nasty flu and cold season.
Fresh horseradish isn't always available in stores and farmers markets, and commercially prepared horseradish often has not-so-great ingredients, such as sugar and dyes. Our organic Horseradish Powder is such an easy way to add it to foods you already love and eat regularly. Please see below for ideas.
