Asafoetida (Hing)


Ingredients: 40% Asafoetida powder, (Ferula assafoetida), 60% Fenugreek powder, (Trigonella foenum-graecum)

  • A sulfurous smelling gum-resin that’s extracted from Furula plants.
  • It’s traditionally ground into a powder and used either for its proposed medicinal qualities or as a spice to add a savory flavor to food.
  • It has been shown to be a good source of antioxidants.
  • Still, while limited research suggests multiple benefits, particularly for digestive health, there’s a need for more research especially in humans.
Suggested Use: Can be a good addition to your spice cabinet. Just a small pinch can add a savory, umami quality to dishes, such as curries, lentil dal, soups, and stews.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place.

Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
