Horseradish Root Powder 1 Pound

Horseradish powder is a spicy, hot powder that is normally mixed into cream or egg based sauces, like mayonnaise, sour cream or crème fraiche, to produce very “hot” dipping sauces. You get horseradish powder by using the root of the plant, Amoracia rusticana, a member of the cabbage family. This is dried and then finely ground to produce horseradish powder. You are more likely to see horseradish power mixed into various spreads than you are to find it in the powdered form. But many now search for the powder so they can decide the level of heat and flavoring they’d like in a sauce.

The horseradish root is a close relative to mustard and contains an eye-watering essential oil that produces the heat and spice for which horseradish powder is known. This chemical, present in both mustard and horseradish, is called allyl isothiocynate. When the horseradish is not dried and powdered right away, the chemical begins to degrade and may produce a bitter rather than a hot taste.

Normally you’ll use horseradish powder in sauces and dips that aren’t cooked. Cooking tends to break down the oil present in the horseradish powder and produces less heat. On the other hand, if you’d like a little bit of the flavor of horseradish without too much spiciness, you can use a bit of the powder in cooked sauces.
