  • Asafoetida (Ferula assafoetida), alternative spelling asafetida, is the dried latex (gum oleoresin) exuded from the living underground rhizome or tap root of several species of Ferula, which is a perennial herb (1 to 1.5 m high).
  • Asafoetida reduces the growth of indigenous microflora in the gut, reducing flatulence.
  • Ferula assafoetida is an herbaceous, monoecious, perennial plant of the family Umbelliferae, also called Apiaceae.
  • Asafetida comes from the milky sap of a giant fennel plant.
  • Asafoetida grows wild in most of Western Asia. The plant thrives, also, in continental climates where the temperature goes to extremes.
  • Plant regeneration in Ferula assa-foetida L. (Asafetida), a medicinally important vulnerable species, was achieved through the mediation of callus derived from root, hypocotyl and cotyledon.
  • Hing (Ferula alliacea) and Hingra (Ferula asafoetida) are the two varieties of asafoetida known and recognized in India. Compounded asafoetida powder/tablets find use in India in culinary preparations for flavouring purpose.
