Four stars from me for customer service.
Conchita T. Harris
Some people have commented that this smells horrible, but to me, it smells like strong garlic and onions (which I love to eat).
Roseanne Miske
And it was so hard to take the top off that when I finally popped it off, the spice spilled all over my floor.

The listing didn't list any other ingredients, so I thought I was buying asafoetida. As it turns out, it is a compounded substance that lists asafoetida after rice flour and gum arabic and before turmeric and wheat flour. Not only was this a surprise because I had no idea that there were fillers, but I have celiac disease, so the stuff is actually toxic for me.

Be forewarned. This is not the pure spice but a watered down mix for the export market. I suppose I can live with that but I would have liked to have known it when I purchased it. I had never heard of this Indian spice before until a recent recipe book by Madhur Jaffrey kept demanding its use. I guess it adds a certain subtle flavoring to the dishes but my palate really isn't that discerning. I think you have to use more than the recipes demand since this is adulterated with a filler.

I have food sensitivities and am highly intolerant to garlic and onions. :( I love to cook with both and needed a substitute. This stuff is great!!

This is used in a number of Indian dishes that I have tried. Each dish came out well. I will order this product again.

I have a WHEAT ALLERGY. I was not aware that is item contains WHEAT, and is not in PURE FORM. I am upset that because it is a "spice"... I was not able to return it to amazon. LOST MONEY... on a crappy product!

Yes, this spice smells bad! Yes, you do have to keep it separated from your other spices, but, it adds so much flavor and new depth to your Indian dishes that it's so worth the initial odor. Once this spice is added to your pan, it takes on an entire new smell unlike what it is in the container. I use this in my Sambar and have even used a bit in my potatoes and bell peppers for added flavor. You only need about a half a teaspoon because it is strong. Wonderful addition to the Indian spice rack!

i have been cooking indian food for almost three years now and i always used to substitute for this unique spice that i can never get in local groceries. my recipes are much better with it however, once you get the spice you should transfer it to a glass jar with a tight fitting lid because the spice does have a powerful sulfer smell before it is cooked. adds depth and complexity to dishes. WARNING: the manufacturers add a lot of filler to this asafoetida like rice flour, gum arabic, turmeric and wheat flour.

i will likely try to find a purer source next time i purchase this spice.

Packaging is terrible. Has a twisty top, but no actual holes to get the spice out. And it was so hard to take the top off that when I finally popped it off, the spice spilled all over my floor.

Also, not pure asafaoetida. Wish I had known this before I bought it.
