Hing Powder processed with natural additives is light in color and has reduced smell & flavor. The spice naturally has a strong smell due to sulfur containing essentials oils. This spice is generally composed of 40-64% resins, with a quantity of approx. 1.5-10% ash, 25% gums, and 10-17% volatile oils. The storage of the Hing Powder is simple. One just needs to protect it from direct light, heat, air and moisture, so that the flavor and color of the spice is retained. One must use an air-tight, opaque container for storage and keep it in a cool, dry place, away from other spices and raw ingredients to prevent the odor effect in the aroma of other spices and ingredients.
