Major Nutrients Found In A Crunchy Roll

As evidenced by the crunchy roll nutrition facts above, the calories are quite friendly for just about anyone. Unfortunately the crunchy roll provides more than half of your daily allowance of fat, cholesterol, sodium and carbs. If you choose to enjoy a crunchy roll for lunch or dinner, be mindful that you’ll need to cut down on fat, salt, carbs and cholesterol in your other meals.


When you choose your crunchy roll, make sure it has been made fresh to order to make sure you don’t get sick. Although the crunchy roll is a fried sushi roll, it is prepared raw and therefore must be freshly prepared.

Store the crunchy roll in the refrigerator for up to two days, but keep in mind that this roll does not re-heat very well. A re-heated crunchy roll may be dried out or too soggy, so the crunchy roll should really be eaten when it’s made.

Eat It With:

The traditional way to eat a Crunchy Roll is to combine the soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi paste in a small bowl and dip each portion of the Crunchy Roll into the mixture. Typically the crunchy roll is served on its own, but you can choose to combine sushi rolls for different flavors or simply to cut down on the fat and sodium.
