In Ayurveda, ‘hing’ holds great importance for curing the most common problems of the stomach like gas, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, intestinal worm infection, and flatulence can all be treated with this magical ingredient.
Mother’s Recipe’s Hing pack will be available in 25gm across all hypermarkets, local stores, exclusive brand outlets and Mother’s Recipe e-store in Kolkata. Competitively priced at Rs. 42, the pack has a shelf life of eighteen months.

Even the pickles, where Mother’s Recipe are market leaders have been growing at 10.7% CAGR and RTE/RTC categories at 17% CAGR. "
" With a market that is cluttered with multiple players, Mother’s Recipe as a brand has continued to stand out due to its diverse range of products, and constant focus on reinvention, to meet consumer demands, Desai added. ”
