There are a lot of “sushi health” sites out there. They make it sound like sushi is healthy, and all the ingredients are harmful. They list many elements you can’t pronounce and then record their benefits.
Most of the information about how to prepare sushi is in the book The Essentials of Sushi Making by Masahiro Ono (2000)
In this section, I’ll be reviewing each ingredient individually. You may have noticed that some items have multiple options listed on different websites, so these are just two selections from my three favorite choices:
Dried Seaweed (kombu)
The traditional way of preparing sushi involves adhering a sheet of paper with vinegar paste to a block of nori seaweed. The most common ingredient used for it to stick is kombu seaweed, which has an abundance of minerals that help keep sushi together and water-tight during transportation (this also helps prevent bacteria or mold from growing). Kombu comes from Japan’s Sea Of Japan region and is packed in dark brown vacuum-packed bags. After receiving the package, break up pieces into smaller pieces before using them in your recipes. For use with sushi rice, add as much as you need to 3-4 cups total (depending on what quantity you plan on making.) For use in nigiri sushi, you usually only require one sheet per serving; some people will double or triple this amount. Generally speaking, you only need a little because each piece will only last 1-2 days stored under refrigeration (seaweeds tend to wilt very quickly once exposed to air.) Some varieties come with juice for preservation purposes because they do not contain any preservatives; if this is what you want, please try using those first when making your choice. Also, note that some.

Wagyu cattle are a type of cattle with very high marbling.
Wagyu is a type of cattle with very high marbling. Marbling refers to an animal’s fat amount; wagyu produce a lot because they are more overweight than other breeds. They also have highly lean meat (and skin), which means that when you buy it, you’re paying for the quality of its flavor as much as anything else.
The most expensive beef in the world is called “Kobe” or “Wagyu” and comes from Japan, where it has been bred since ancient times.
Wagyu is the most expensive beef in the world.
Wagyu is the most expensive beef in the world. It’s a type of cattle with very high marbling and extremely lean meat—but it’s also incredibly fat.
Wagyu is known as Kobe or Japanese Black Wagyu, which refers to its color. The word “wagyu” means “Japanese cow,” but there are two types: red wagyu (also called “Japanese Black”) and white wagyu (also called “Silver Cross Femur Cows”).
Wagyu is extremely fat but also incredibly lean.
Wagyu beef is a type of beef known for its extreme fat content and is extremely lean. This makes it an ideal choice for those looking to lose weight but still enjoy the flavor and texture of a good steak. The price tag on wagyu steaks is steep—they can easily cost hundreds of dollars per pound (or more). In addition to this high cost, wagyu beef is also rare; only 3% of all cattle in Japan are considered “wagyu” by law (and only 1% have received official certification).
Wagyu has very little cholesterol.
Wagyu has very little cholesterol. It’s a type of beef that’s extremely expensive and considered more valuable than other meats because it’s so rare that you can get high-quality wagyu for a lower price than most other types of beef.
Wagyu is also known as Japanese Kobe or Japanese Black Wagyu, and it comes from cattle bred in Japan, where they have access to fresh water year-round. The cows are raised on grasslands with shade trees like pines and maples during their first four years before being slaughtered at around 20 months old (or two years old).

Wagyu beef is also used in sashimi, nigiri, and temaki (hand rolls).

Wagyu is a type of cow that has been bred for its meat. It’s considered more “valuable” than other meats because it’s so expensive and rare. Wagyu beef is used in sushi, so if you’re a fan of sushi, then you’ll want to try some wagyu!
Budd Atanasi owns farms for breeding and raising cattle for Japanese wagyu at the Santa Clara Ranch.
Budd Atanasi owns farms for breeding and raising cattle for Japanese wagyu at the Santa Clara Ranch. He has been breeding cattle for over 30 years, and his passion for this work has led him to write two books on how to raise quality Wagyu cattle, “The Science of Japanese Wagyu” and “WAGYU: An Introduction to Breed Selection, Genetics, Reproduction & Nutrition.”
The beef is available online.
Wagyu beef comes in a variety of cuts, packages, and sizes. The price varies between $50 and over $150 per pound. You can find it online or at your local butcher shop.
R. Budd Atanasi and his family own the Santa Clara Ranch, which breeds wagyu cattle from Japan and raises them in California for several months before shipping them to California and around the world.
Budd’s father was a cattle rancher, so Budd is an excellent judge of beef quality. “You feel like you’re getting a much higher grade of food – better tasting meat.”
“We can raise some very high-quality cattle.”
The beef comes from Japan (among other countries), with a tiny percentage of Wagyu cattle in the herd. The Japanese tend to preserve the genetic variation between their elite stock by only breeding with that select stock, so many subspecies of wagyu are available. The Santa Clara Ranch tends to raise mainly “A5” Wagyu, making it one of the purest versions.
