Pure Food Essentials Organic Asafoetida is extremely pungent and is normally compounded with rice flour or white wheat flour. Our powder is compounded with gluten-free arrowroot starch (also suitable for low FODMAP diets) making it appropriate for sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and those who desire a gluten-free diet.

As it cooks, its strong smell mellows, and is replaced with the smell and flavours of onion and garlic. It’s a useful spice for those who can’t tolerate onion or garlic and the consequent gas and strong breath.

Health Benefits

  • Traditionally used for the treatment of diseases such as asthma, epilepsy, stomach-ache, flatulence, intestinal parasites, weak digestion and influenza
  • Antioxidant, antiviral, antifungal, antidiabetic, antispasmodic, hypotensive, expectorant and stimulant
  • Thins the blood and lowers blood pressure
  • Used in modern herbalism in the treatment of hysteria, some nervous conditions, bronchitis, asthma and whooping cough, and to reduce flora in the gut
  • Believed to help treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Believed to protect against high blood levels of certain fats
  • Chemicals called coumarins in asafoetida can thin the blood.
How to Use

Used in vegetarian food as an alternative to onion and garlic.

The taste is bitter and acrid.

It is believed to help digestion and flatulence, which is why it is often used with gas-producing foods such as chickpeas and lentils and cauliflower.

As it cooks, its strong smell mellows, and is replaced with the smell and flavours of onion and garlic.

It’s a useful spice for those who can’t tolerate onion or garlic and the consequent gas and strong breath.

It is used in about the proportion of a pinch or two to 250g of the main ingredient.

The degree of pungency is directly related to its freshness. It is recommended to double-bag your asafoetida for storing so that its smell does not contaminate other foods.

Store the product in a cool and dry place.
