Asafoetida powder, commonly known as hing powder, originates from the resin of the Ferula plant species, particularly Ferula assa-foetida, which belongs to the Apiaceae family, also known as the carrot or parsley family. This pungent spice has its roots in ancient Persia (modern-day Iran and Afghanistan), where it was highly valued for both its medicinal and culinary properties. Asafoetida made its way to India through trade routes and quickly became an integral part of Indian cooking and Ayurvedic medicine. 

Our high-quality asafoetida powder or hing powder is sourced directly from Afghanistan. An interesting fact about asafoetida or hing powder is its nickname "devil's dung" due to its strong sulphur smell when raw, which transforms into a delightful, onion-garlic-like flavour when cooked. Health-wise, asafoetida is celebrated for its digestive benefits, helping to alleviate bloating and flatulence. It also possesses antimicrobial properties and is used in traditional remedies for respiratory conditions. In the culinary world, a pinch of hing is essential in tempering for dals, curries, and pickles, adding a unique flavour that enhances the overall taste of dishes.
