Horse radish: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients

Horse radish

It is believed that the birthplace of the horseradish is Egypt, where vegetable oil was made from its seeds, which was very common in those days. From Egypt, the horseradish came to Ancient Greece, and from there to Europe. It was brought to our country from Asia and quickly became popular. The horseradish was used primarily in the preparation of churi and helped to survive the times of famine. The ancient Greeks and Romans highly respected the horseradish. As the legend tells, when Apollo was asked about the merits of the plant, he replied that it was made of as much gold as it weighs itself.
