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.

Our asafoetida comes directly from the rich fertile mountain regions of Northern India and is sourced from hill tribe traditional farmers. These traditional farmers practice only organic, sustainable farming methods
