Asafoetida, also known as Hing, is the dried latex derived from the sap of the Ferula species of herb. It is a coarse, natural, creamy coloured powder.
Along with its culinary uses, asafoetida has a prominent place in traditional medicine. Its health benefits come from its calming, antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, antispasmodic, expectorant, sedative, diuretic, vermifuge, emmenagogue, aphrodisiac and anti-carcinogenic properties.
This potent-smelling spice is commonly used in Persian and Indian cooking for flavoring, food preservation and fragrance. Due to its strong odor, it is also called Devil’s dung!
From a nutritional perspective, asafetida provides protein, fibre, carbohydrates, calcium, phosphorous, iron, niacin, carotene and riboflavin.
