Asafoetida Powder 100g

Regular price $9.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
Natural asafoetida is a must for curries and stews. Perfect for the replacement of onions and garlic, it also helps relieve gas and bloating when cooking with lentils and legumes. As it cooks, its strong smell mellows, and is replaced with the smell and flavours of onion and garlic. A tiny bit goes a long way!

Pure asafoetida is extremely pungent and is normally compounded with rice or white wheat flour. Our asafoetida powder is compounded with gluten-free arrowroot starch. This makes it a great option for those with dietary restrictions including low FODMAP, gluten-free, onion and garlic intolerance and also for sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Derived from the resin of a giant fennel plant, it has a particularly strong odour which is due to sulphur compounds in its volatile oil. It is also known as Hing and is sometimes referred to as Devil’s Dung due to its foetid smell. It is only grown in Afghanistan, Iran and India where it is highly valued for its medicinal properties.
