Origin: India

Ingredients: Asafoetida, White Flour, Gum Arabic and Mustard Oil **Asafoetida Powder contains white flour and is NOT gluten free.**

Hing Powder
There are two variants of hing powder/asafoetida: pure and cut. As far as I am aware, the pure stuff only comes in a little tiny white container. It seems a little pricey but the stuff is extra potent. The problem is that you have to use extra containers/bags to keep the pure stuff sealed up due to the strong aromas. To this end, the cut stuff is nice. The cut stuff, as this is, is nice. It's cheaper because it's cut but much easier to handle than pure hing. All of the negative reviews that I have read were from people not knowing how to use it. It seems silly to me that an ignorant person would complain about a product they are using incorrectly. This stuff is great and I will be purchasing more when the pound that I bought runs out. Please look up how to use it in recipes. Quick hint: use it to saute some items.

Asafetida
I have always been happy with your product until now. The spice was fine, but when I opened the bag with the glass bottles, both were broken, In addition, I cut my hand opening the bag. The quality of the jars were equal to what I could get at a dollar tree but almost 5 X's the cost. I tried to call the number on the invoice and it just rang and rang. I emailed your company and no one got back to me. Not very happy.

Love, Love My Asefoetida Powde
I am allergic to garlic and onions. A friend told me about this powder. Since I couldn't find it in my local grocery stores, I looked on-line. Spice Sage had it and the price is very reasonable. The powder is perfect. It provides the flavor of garlic and onion. I am in heaven.

Asafoetida & Mustard Powde
The mustard powderwas great, made homemade fermented mustard with it. The asafoetida powder turned out to have gluten in it, which I am allergic to, but customer service refunded my money with no issues. Thanks!

Product Was Ok...packaging A C
I have ordered from this site about 6 or 7 times total and all told the product is ok but the packaging leaves much to be desired. This is the second order that came to me a mess with half the product spilled out in the delivery envelope due to the hole in the bottom of the little ziplock baggie the powder came in. This happened before near christmas last year and when i contacted spoce sage about it they said they would fix it and resend my order. To date nothing was ever done about the last order so i didnt even bother with this one. What is the point in wasting my time? I dont know that i will order from here again since there are other sites out there that actually care about customer service and delivering a quality product intact instead of half of it left spread across half of the United States.
Ibrahim A.Verified BuyerApr 07, 2015
OK Service
My two separate orders each of which totaled more than $25 were combined and two "free" packages of saffron listed on initial order cofirmation was reduced to one. Not a big deal, but, there were no restrictions posted "such as one per household". Therefore, I felt there was not a god reason for holding back one package of free saffron.
Mary S.Verified BuyerMar 19, 2015
First Time Purchase.
Exceptional, really fast delivery and great quality. Not sure how the spice I ordered was supposed to taste but am trying more Indian food in my kitchen. Added the extra element I needed.

Priscilla C.Verified BuyerNov 28, 2014
I Wasn't Pleased With Thi
I wasn't pleased with this spice, for some reason it didn't deliver the flavor I expected when I used it. It doesn't have the strong scent that others speak of either.
Nancy V.Verified BuyerAug 26, 2014
Would Definitely Use Again!
I couldn't find Asafoetida Powder at any of my local grocery stores and learned about this site through an online blog. I ordered and received the spice within just a few days. Included in my order was the opportunity to choose an additional spice sample at no charge! I am very pleased to know about My Spice Sage and will certainly recommend it to my friends and family!
Dennis G.Verified BuyerAug 21, 2014

The Best, Ever.
Sorry, but this will be long. I've ordered this over the ears from an online Indian spice specialist as well as bought it locally from Indian or Pakistani grocers. Those were just fine--until I smelled this one. Truly fresh, to begin with, and possibly better processed. It's essential to some Indian dishes such as sambar. Jains, who aren't allowed onions or garlic, often substitute this, since it does have a somewhat allium-tinged flavor. But don't even think that'll translate to what an American would taste. I've found that everyone I've introduced it to from the jar, was initially repelled by its disgusting smell. It's a bit like rotten fenugreek with a rotten egg thrown in. The notion of that being added to your food can be frightening. But a pinch added to a cooked dish? Heaven! If you've ever eaten in an Indian restaurant, you've eaten it. And if you love papadum, it's precisely why you love them. Still, the "foetida" part of its name means "fetid." You've been warned. I wasn't unaccustomed to the smell. Where I grew up, there were lots of kids whose grandmothers tied an "assafeeda" bag, usually obtained from a root woman, around their necks to ward off curses or the devil, even if they didn't practice Hoodoo. Those kids were from families recently up from the South; I'm not sure it's done country-wide. The long tale is over. Certainly try this one from MSS, because it's superior to any I've bought so far.
