Product description

Asafoetida powder is made from the white and milky resin from a species of giant Fennel. It has a unique smell and acidic flavour that disappear while cooking to leave a smooth and pleasant flavour similar to onion and garlic. It is often used as a substitute for garlic and onions and a wonderful substitute for people with sensitivities to such ingredients. It is a key ingredient in vegetarian Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine.

    Have begun using this as a substitute for garlic and onion whilst testing a FODMAp diet. Wasn’t sure where to get it and you have a great price. I look forward to trying other products.
