Asafoetida Oleoresin has a characteristic aromatic order and bitter acidic taste. It is actually a gum oleoresin from the various plants of ferula varieties. Asafoetida oleoresin is used in diluted form. The pure resin is very strong and with disagreeable odour.


Also known as Devil’s Dung and Food of the Gods, Asafoetida was the popular flavoring spice of ancient Rome. With a pungent aroma that is more persistent than garlic, Asafoetida is still used as an ingredient in Worcestershire sauce, which was based on a recipe from a British officer returned from colonial India.
