Crushed Red Pepper
Did You Know?
Known for their hot flavor, chili peppers (Capsicum annuum) are primarily used for culinary purposes, as a spice added to various dishes and sauces. The chili is a fruit pod of the capsicum pepper plant belonging to the nightshade family (Solanaceae). Cayenne, jalapeno, habanero and serrano peppers are some of the most popular varieties of chili peppers.
Chili peppers were first cultivated by ancient farmers in Central and South America, regions whose cuisines are famous for their piquant flavor. Today, chili peppers are grown all over the world, but Mexico, China, Spain, Nigeria and Turkey are among the largest commercial producers. Chili pepper contains a bioactive plant compound called capsaicin, which is responsible for its hot and spicy kick. Capsaicin is concentrated in the seeds and white inner membrane; the more capsaicin it contains, the spicier the pepper. Whether eaten fresh, dried or powdered (known as paprika), chili peppers can put fire on your tongue and perhaps even a tear in your eye.
Capsaicin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Chili peppers are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body. This vitamin is essential for maintaining healthy mucous membranes to help protect the body from invading pathogens (microorganisms that cause disease). Chili is also rich in vitamin C, and this helps the body produce white blood cells that fight germs. If you’re watching your salt intake, red pepper flakes can be an excellent alternative. They’ll add the much-needed flavor without packing on the sodium. Adding red pepper flakes to your diet can help clear your congestion during cold and flu season and allergy season. That’s because the spicy heat found in the flakes helps clear the mucus stuffing up your nose and lungs. Chili doesn’t just offer culinary and health uses; it can also be used for self-defense. Oleoresin capsicum (OC), extracted from red hot chili peppers, is the active ingredient in pepper spray.

The health benefits of crushed red pepper extend beyond its use as a flavoring.
The heat you get from crushed red pepper comes from the capsaicin it contains. The more capsaicin, the hotter the pepper.
Capsaicin does more than just give the peppers their spicy bite, it has numerous health benefits.Crushed red pepper contains a small but still significant amount of vitamin C.
In addition, crushed red pepper is a good source of vitamin E, another important antioxidant vitamin. Lastly, vitamin B6 is present as well. Vitamin B6 is sometimes called pyridoxine.
