Chilli peppers are widely used in many cuisines as a spice to add heat to dishes.
It's all history
Chillies originated in Mesoaamerica, the region that extends from Central Mexico to Central America and northern Costa Rica. Archaeologists trace their gradual domestication back to 5000 BC, in the Tehuacán valley of Mexico.
When you repeatedly expose your pain receptors to capsaicin (the active component in chilli peppers), they physically change, allowing you to up your spice game.
There is some evidence that capsaicin, a plant compound in chili peppers, can promote weight loss by reducing appetite and increasing fat burning.
Chillies are eaten by a quarter of the earth’s population every day, in countries all over the globe.
Chilli peppers are a rich source of spicy-hot capsaicin, which has powerful antioxidant properties.
Cooking & preparation
The seeds and flesh of the chilli can both be eaten, but cooking chillies does not reduce the intensity of capsaicin; only removing the seeds and veins will lessen their heat.
