PURE FOOD ESSENTIALS Organic Cayenne Pepper is high on the scale of spiciness. The active component of chilli peppers is capsaisin (cap-say-sin). Varying levels of capsaisin in chillies gives them their heat. Many people consume large quantities of cayenne pepper, often in capsule form, for the health benefits of capsaisin. Pure Food Essentials organic Cayenne Pepper contains only ground, dried chilli peppers.

Cayenne Pepper is one of the hottest chilli powders available commercially. Pure Food Essentials Cayenne Pepper ranks at 67,200 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). That means it has to be diluted 67,000 times for the heat to be undetectable! Any dish you cook with cayenne pepper will be fiery hot. It’s a good chilli powder to have on hand to perk up a disappointingly mild dish. Because it’s very easy to overdo the spicy heat you should add it sparingly. You can always add more, but it’s impossible to remove!'
