    As I can’t eat onions or garlic due to IBS, this is a great substitute!
    I use it in casterol dishes, in my homemade taco seasoning, dressings, dips and all other dishes that I usually would use onion.
    One packet lasts for nearly one year, and I use it several times a week.

    Love it! Perfect for us with IBS, who can not use onion and garlic.

    The warmth and friendliness of fried onions without the bulk. Good in pakoras and Indian snacks.

    I died and went to heaven. Not being able to eat garlic nor onion due to ibs, I thought my food had to be dull and tasteless. But not any more! Thank heavens for Asafoetida!

    I haven’t got around to try it that much, except for in a sauce, but I have to say I’m really satisfied. Being on a low FODMAP diet and avoiding onion and garlic, I’ve really missed the flavour those two give to a dish, but asafoetida compensate to a certain degree. However, it’s very potent, so try a little first before adding more. I’ve seen a couple of other asafoetida products on the market, but they contain wheat (gluten), which this doesn’t.

    I used to buy Asafoetida from a local shop as a substitute for onions.Unfortunately it contained so much wheat flour it triggered my IBS.

    looking online I eventually found my way to Seasoned Pioneers,one of the few reputable companys selling Asafoetida without any wheat in it.
    I bought 3 packs of ground Asafoetida and got it delivered a couple of days later.

    This stuff is extremely potent compared to the previous brand I bought. I used to add about 1tsp to a big pot of stew but don’t try that with the Asafoetida from Seasoned Pioneers.Try to use really small amounts at first,a pinch or 1/16 of a tsp might be enough.

    Overall a great product and fast shipping .
