it is in a lovely indian bread, among lentils flour, cumin and salt.
i wonder if it could be ok considering it is not in my swami (as a spice) but the other ingredients are all beneficial, even diamond-ish

thank you so much for your help: praiseworthy forum as always

Asafoetida is a wonderful medicinal herb. It is great for digestion (like fennel) helps with IBS, also great for asthma/bronchitis and is a blood thinner. It is also known by the name "hing". I use it in curries. It has a pungent smell, but when cooked (especially in ghee) the smell becomes very aromatic. Because of it's blood thinning properties I think it would be great forType A's.

My heritage is Italian and Persian. I love all of the middle eastern spices and ayrvedic practices. You will learn in time if it is something that really interests you. I use fenugreek as a spice in curries. I buy it in ground form instead of the seeds. It is difficult to even grind them in the coffee grinder. The leaves are actually eaten in India, so that is why it is listed as a vegetable. In ayurveda, fenugreek is used as a digestive, to treat heart issues, high cholesterol/triglycerides and skin issues. It makes a wonderful face mask... mix fenugreek powder, tumeric and honey in yogurt. Apply to face for 20 minutes, wash off and your skin feels and looks like you spent $100 on a facial. Not too much tumeric though...you don't want to turn yellow.
