Home›Gluten Free Pure Asafoetida/Asafetida (Hing) powder - Low FODMAP Onion and Garlic Substitute, Non GMO, Non Irradiated, 4oz
This is a very rare find - pure asafetida powder, no additives, preservatives or fillers. Asafoetida, also called asafetida or hing, is a low FODMAP onion or garlic substitute used to add onion and garlic flavor without using onion or garlic. It is derived from a herb named Ferula. It has traditionally been used as a substitute for onion and garlic in Ayuverdic cooking, Jainism and Buddhism because of its deep oniony umami notes. It can also be used on the FODMAP diet, or anyone who cannot eat onion or garlic for any reason. Using hing results in an intensely aromatic dish with layers of flavor and a full mouth feel. Consistently getting those layers and that texture seems like a challenge for many home cooks - with asafoetida that's just a pinch away.
Historically it's been used as a medicine for all sorts of ailments - bloating, farting, digestive problems, headache, toothaches, ear aches, menstrual pains, respiratory disorders, etc. Recent studies have also shown it is useful in relieving the digestive symptoms of IBS. Our hing is gluten free, perfect for the low FODMAP diet.
Asafetida has a strong smell and mellows into an oniony/garlicky flavor when sautéed in oil. Use a pinch at a time.
