Description

Crushed red pepper or red pepper flakes (RPF) or Red Chilli cutter is a condiment consisting of dried and crushed (as opposed to ground) red chili peppers.

This condiment is most often produced from chili-type peppers, although commercial producers may use a variety of different cultivars.

Crushed red pepper shakers have become as standard as salt and pepper on tables at Italian style restaurants and especially pizza parlors in the United States. Often there is a high ratio of seeds, which some people mistakenly believe intensifies the heat of this flavorful condiment. Crushed red pepper is used in pickling, chowders, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, soups and sausage.

Crushed red pepper is known as pul biber in Turkey and it is a very popular spice to add to foods. One variety of it is the Urfa pul biber (isot).

As chilis have become more popular, the varieties of peppers used to make crushed red pepper have also changed.[citation needed]

If you want more flavor in your food plus health benefits like weight loss and pain relief, try adding crushed red pepper to your meals. In traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, a traditional form of Indian medicine, red peppers have been used to treat digestive problems, circulatory problems, infections and arthritis. Most crushed red pepper mixtures contain a variety of different peppers such as bell, jalapeno, ancho and cayenne peppers, which range from mild and peppery to hot and spicy. The pepper seeds are included to increase the spice level.

Red peppers have a lot of spice and flavor without many added calories, fat or sugar. In 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper, there are only 6 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrate. The same amount of pepper contains 15 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin A for a 2,000-calorie diet. Vitamin A is beneficial for improving skin, hair, nails and eyes. Red pepper also contains vitamins C, E and B-6, and the minerals iron, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Pain Reliever

If you have pain or inflammation in your body, eating more crushed red pepper may help. Capsaicin is a compound in peppers that gives them a hot and spicy flavor and is also responsible for reducing pain. When eaten, hot red peppers have a strong analgesic, or pain-relieving, quality and produce powerful anti-inflammatory actions. According to a study published in the “Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology,” the carotenoids found in red peppers are antioxidants responsible for relief from pain and reduction of inflammation. The study also noted that, even in high doses, no adverse effects from red pepper carotenoids were observed.

Weight Control

Crushed red pepper is thermogenic in nature, which means it produces heat in the body and stimulates the metabolism. A study published in the journal “Physiology and Behavior” looked at the effect of hot red pepper intake on energy balance and appetite. Study participants who consumed spicy red peppers had higher energy expenditure and higher body temperature after a meal than those who did not take red pepper. The study also found that people who consumed hot red peppers ate fewer total calories per day and had a diminished interest in food. If you’re looking for a safe, healthy way to burn more calories and get excessive eating under control, adding crushed red pepper to food could help.

Disease Prevention

Polyphenols are antioxidants found in crushed red pepper that give them a strong disease-preventing property. A study published in the journal “Nutrition Research and Practice” looked at the effect of spicy red pepper seeds on rats fed a high-fat and high-cholesterol diet, which is known to cause health problems and heart disease. The researchers found that the antioxidants in red pepper strengthened the immune system’s ability to reduce oxidative stress and prevent oxidative diseases such as cancer, inflammation, heart disease and decreased immune function. In addition, capsaicin in hot peppers promotes circulation, which may prevent hardening of arteries and reduce risk of heart attack.
