  • Wildcrafted

    We source our hing from wild asafoetida plants. Organic certification is not available because hing is a wild-crafted product.
  • Pure, with no anti-caking agents

    Our aromatic raw hing comes in lump form or a convenient-to-use powder. Gold Label lumps are 100% pure hing. Blue and Green Label powders contain only the minimum amount of edible gum (gum arabic) to make an easy-to-use powder. Edible gum is the hardened sap of acacia trees.
  • High Potency, Lasts Longer

    Our raw hing is 8-10 times stronger than most compound hing powder sold in grocery stores. You only need to use a pinch in cooking.

What is hing / asafetida?

Hing, also known as Asafoetida, is the secret weapon of Indian cuisine. Aromatic and pungent, a tiny pinch makes every other spice shine.Hing is made from the dried resin of a giant fennel-family plant. It is pleasantly aromatic and pungent raw. It becomes mellow and garlicky when cooked in ghee and evokes a beautiful savory flavor when paired with turmeric.
Scientific name: Ferula assa-foetida

We now offer three kinds of hing.

Sandeep Agarwal & Hing

"This is a picture of me with the package of hing in the back of my van. As soon as I heard our hing had arrived at Newark airport, I drove straight there to pick it up. I was so excited, I couldn't wait for the delivery truck. Just got it myself!! It smelled SOOOO GOOD without even opening the package!

I really love hing. I have fond memories of growing up in India, where my mother would give a tadka of hing in ghee (sauté hing in ghee) and add it to the food she prepared. The whole kitchen would be filled with a beautiful aroma.

She didn’t have to 'text' family members to come for the meal; everyone just rushed to the kitchen right away. However, the terrible quality of Hing available in the U.S. market shocked me. I started my search for a good quality hing. It took me several years and multiple international trips, after which I discovered this lovely fragrant hing. It is up to 10x stronger than other compound hing powders found in the market. You need to use only a pinch.

This hing powder reminds me of my childhood memories and all the hearty meals that my mom prepared for our family. Give it a try and let me know how you liked it. If you love hing like I do, then this is the hing powder that you have been looking for."

Common Questions

Does your hing smell?

All hing has a strong scent. We like to say ours smells "pleasantly aromatic" compared to other brands. In English, it is called both “hing” and “asafetida.” Asa comes from the Persian word azā, which means “resin,: and foetidus means “smelling, fetid.” The smell—and thus the flavor—of raw hing is highly pungent, but when the right amount is heated in a fat, such as ghee, the aroma and flavor mellow beautifully into something akin to fragrantly sautéed leeks, onions, shallots and garlic. Its characteristic odor comes from sulfur compounds in the fennel resin. Some people love it; some people hate it—just like onions or garlic.

Is hing a good substitute for onions & garlic?

Yes! Asafetida is an essential ingredient in Southern Indian vegetarian cooking, and an ideal substitute for onion and garlic.

Is asafetida (hing) low FODMAP?

Yes. It has been lab-tested by Monash University and is on .

If you're on a low FODMAP diet to treat SIBO or IBS, asafetida powder is a great allium alternative! The key is to make sure that the hing you're using is free of wheat flour, starch, or other unsuitable anti-caking agents or preservatives. Thankfully, our hing really is the best ever. Unlike most other brands, ours is 100% raw and non-irradiated and is wheat and starch free.

Is your asafetida (hing) gluten-free?

We offer three asafetida (hing) products. Of the three, the Blue Label and the Gold Label are batch tested gluten-free.

Is asafetida the same thing as hing?

Yes! Called asafetida (also spelled asafoetida) in English, it's also known as hing (or heeng) in Hindi.

What does asafetida taste like?

Just a pinch of our wild-crafted pure hing gives food an invitingly aromatic onion-garlic flavor, which is especially good in curries, vegetarian dishes, and stews. It provides the base notes to almost all Indian cuisine, so much so that you'll immediately notice if it's missing!

Do you recommend hing for its health benefits?

While hing does have a history of being recommended in Ayurveda, and may also have many verifiable therapeutic benefits, we are not doctors! We strongly suggest you speak with your practitioner or doctor for any medical advice related to asafetida.

Cooking with Asafetida

  • Simply mix a pinch of hing with 1 tsp of ghee, olive oil, or sesame oil; sauté and add to cooked grains, legumes, or vegetables.
  • Traditionally, hing has been used as a digestive aid, added to legumes (beans and peas) and gas-producing vegetables as an anti-flatulent. Add a bit to a large pot of beans or lentils when cooking.
  • Combine a pinch of hing powder with 1 TBSP ghee in a saucepan. Sauté a colorful variety of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini or yellow squash. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Combine a pinch of hing powder with 1 TBSP ghee in a saucepan. Sauté leafy greens such as kale, collards, chard or spinach. Add curry powder and a splash of coconut milk.
  • Scramble eggs with a pinch of hing and pure ghee or butter. Add any other vegetables you want.
  • Combine a pinch of hing powder with 1 TBSP ghee and 1 tsp curry powder, and cook for a few seconds. Add grains such as millet or rice. Fry just a moment, then add broth or water and cook as normal.
  • In a saucepan, heat cooked chickpeas in a mixture of ghee and a pinch of hing. Add spices to taste such as salt, pepper, curry powder, turmeric, cumin and coriander. Serve over rice or quinoa.
  • Stir a little hing and ghee into favorite onion-and-garlic-free pasta sauce for delicious, IBS-friendly marinara sauce.
  • Add a little hing and turmeric to sautéed ground meat when making chili, Sloppy Joes, or spaghetti with meat sauce.

Devil's Dung or God's Food?

Perhaps no other food has caused such controversy when it comes to loving or hating the pungent smell of raw hing. Raw hing has been called both "Devil's Dung" due to the strong smell and "God's Food" because it's so good for you. Numerous studies have been done on the benefits of this spice!

In English, it is called both "hing" and "asafoetida." Asa is a Latinized form of the Persian word azā, which means "resin." The Latin foetidus means "smelling, fetid."

Even though there is all this talk about how bad hing smells, I guarantee you ours is the most aromatic, pleasant hing you've ever smelled. I can say this with confidence because it's the most aromatic, pleasant hing I have personally ever smelled, and I've smelled a LOT of hing!When I found this hing, I just knew I had to bring it back for you, so you could enjoy it, too! Enjoy!
