Our organic chili pepper flakes are exclusively made from dried and crushed red chili peppers.

Red chili peppers, botanically a part of the "Capsicum" genus, are pods classified as fruits that belong to the "Solanaceae" or nightshade family. There are thousands of varieties of red chile peppers found around the world with varying shapes, sizes, flavors, and spice levels. Red chili peppers are often considered "the universal spice" as they are used in almost every cuisine. Originally from Central and South America, the history of red chili peppers has evolved with the expansion of global trade routes and was one of the spices that revolutionized the culinary industry. Red chili peppers are the mature versions of peppers that have been harvested once the pods are fully developed, and the flavors are at their peak intensity.

Red chili peppers are native to Central and South America and have been growing wild since ancient times. The peppers were spread throughout the Americas via migrating peoples and tribes, and then in the 15th and 16th centuries, the peppers were introduced to Europe and Asia via Spanish and Portuguese explorers. Through the explorers, the peppers were transported across spice routes and rapidly grew in popularity as a culinary ingredient and ornamental home garden plant. Today red chili peppers are available in Asia, Europe, Australia, North America, Central America, South America, Africa, and the Caribbean.

These peppers range from 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

General Storage Tips:

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
• Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
