Cayenne Chili Powder 

Capsicum Annuum

Gathering Place cayenne chili is hand harvested from a remote farmers co-op in Southern India where it is known as Guntur Sanam chili. This region experiences extreme poverty so we began to import cayenne chili powder as a way of supporting this distant region.

Our cayenne chili powder is incredibly fresh; always from the current year's harvest resulting in a potent and pure spice with a heat rating of SCU 35000. Hot chili peppers have been used as an alternative medicine for centuries, including relief of colds, sore throats and fevers, improving circulation and is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin C. Of interest, the burning sensation of hot peppers is a reaction of the central nervous system to capsaicin and only causes this burning sensation, but does no damage to the tissues.

Please note - this is pure powdered chili peppers and is NOT a blend.
