ISO Hing (asafoetida) pure???

I love to cook Indian food. However every container of hing is full of other ingredients.
Is it possible to find hing without wheat and other stuff?

  1. I bought some a long time ago at that spice store in Kensington market on Augusta. I can't say if it was pure or not. Just a lead.

    1. You'll find it in little india at Kohinoor Foods (1438 Gerrard St E).

      1. You chowhounders are all kinds of wonderful.
        the Hing I am looking at can either be liquid or powder using rice flour instead of wheat.
        I will check them out. Thanks!
        I hope to add yummy hing to my daals for my celiac buddies.
        It just has to be there!
