About Cayenne Pepper Powder Organic

Known for its bold red hue and fiery taste, cayenne pepper is not only one of the most recognizable and versatile peppers in the world, but it’s also a medicinally powerful ingredient that has been used as a cure-all for thousands of years. Originating in Central and South America, cayenne pepper was first brought to Europe in the fifteenth century by Christopher Columbus and quickly became one of the primary sources of heat in European cooking. With a hot, fiery taste, cayenne is one of the main ingredients of Tabasco sauce and Chili Con Carne.

Cayenne has usually a heat rating of 30,000 to 50,000 in Scoville units, making it about 10 times hotter than a jalapeño. While cayenne pepper is hot and spicy, it is also pungent and has a strong bite. In addition to adding heat to a dish, it also enhances other flavours.

Cayenne pepper is believed to be a healthy spice in regards to the wide number of medicinal uses and benefits to general health it possesses. It is a very good source of many B vitamins (including B6) as well as Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Vitamin A.

How to use

Due to its high heat levels, cayenne is best used in small amounts while cooking to guarantee that it doesn’t overtake a dish. Given its Central American origins, cayenne pepper has a key role in Mexican cooking, used widely to flavor spicy sauces, meat marinades, and traditional dishes like enchiladas, tacos, and fajitas. Over time, cayenne pepper became a staple in a variety of Asian cuisines, commonly included in dishes like Indian curries and spicy Thai soups.

Flavor Pairings: Most spices, laurel, coriander, coconut milk, lemon and lime.
