Being on the Fodmap and discovering onions and garlic are a big no no for ibs sufferers i think my love affair with onions is sadly at an end. I never realised onion was in so many foods as a hidden ingredient. Every time i have had a severe attack with cramps it has been after eating something with onion in some form in it so maybe there is the problem.
So i have heard that this spice, Asafoetida, is a fantastic alternative and despite the smell tastes like onions when cooked.
Has anyone ever used this spice?
