Product Description

Premium Rani Brand Spices

Asafetida (sometimes spelled Asafoetida)...A Little History!
Native to Southwestern Asia. A little known spice outside of India, asafetida is the dried resin obtained from the rhizome of the giant fennel plant. Powdered asafetida has a strong odor, reminiscent of picked garlic. In most Indian cooking it is used as a flavor enhancer and once cooked releases an onion-like flavor.  It is also known as devil's dung, asant, food of the gods, jowani badian, stinking gum, hing, hengu, ingu, kayam, and ting.

Asafetida is used as a digestive aid, in food as a condiment, and in pickling. It typically works as a flavour enhancer and, used along with turmeric, is a standard component of Indian cuisine, particularly in lentil curries such as dal, sambar as well as in numerous vegetable dishes. It is sometimes used to harmonize sweet, sour, salty, and spicy components in food.  Asafoetida is considered a digestive in that it reduces flatulence.

No Onions? No Garlic? No problem. Rani Brand premium asafetida has long been used as a substitute for onions and garlic in a wide variety of recipes.  Many people who suffer from allergies use this as well.  Also as you may know, that onions and garlic have a very pungent smell and taste, our asafetida is no different.  Sniff at your own risk. 

Many of our customers have found this product FODMAP Friendly.   FODMAP is a collection of short chain carbohydrates and sugar alcohols found in foods naturally or as food additives. FODMAPs include fructose (when in excess of glucose), fructans, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), lactose and polyols (eg. sorbitol and mannitol).
