Kauai Farmacy Hawaiian Chili Pepper Flakes are the cornerstone of any gourmet spice cabinet. Fresher, more flavorful and full of medicinal kick, this culinary spice provides an unparalleled experience.
The electric heat of Hawaiian Chili Pepper demands respect. Each tiny pepper contains a trailblazing percentage of capsaicin, the active compound in chili peppers associated with spiciness, pain relief, reducing inflammation and lowering blood pressure.
The flavor is light, bright and slightly pungent. It adds enough zest to impress, but leaves room for other flavors to prevail.
The feeling is a lightning bolt of invigorating heat that awakens the body and arouses the mind.
The medicine is powerfully effective.
- Reduces inflammation by increasing circulation.
- Relieves pain: capsaicin binds to pain receptors on our nerves, which then send signals to the brain to release endorphins and dopamine (our natural analgesics).
- Lowers blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels.
- Promotes weight loss by increasing metabolism.
- Boosts immunity via antibacterial and antioxidant qualities.
Why Kauai Farmacy Chili Peppers?
Our Hawaiian Chili Peppers are carefully hand-picked at optimum ripeness. Waiting patiently until ruby red and medicinally plump, the pepper is plucked and immediately delivered to our solar dehydrators. Low and slow curing protects active compounds and ensures quality. The rest of the process proceeds by hand, infused with love every step of the way.
Hawaiian Chili Peppers measure 50,000-70,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). They are VERY HOT and beckon a conservative approach. We recommend using just a pinch per plate or 1/4 teaspoon per recipe. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and wash hands immediately after use.
For culinary use: incorporate into recipes or just sprinkle on top of food. Combines great with fats, protein and Asian cuisine.
For acute medicinal use: blend into a spoonful of honey or dust a light amount in your tea or juice. Great to boost immunity, relieve nerve pain, reduce nasal congestion or halt a headache.
