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.


Yidu Chili Threads

These chile threads are extremely thin threads and are also known as chili threads and Korean red pepper. These threads come from the Yidu Chile a dried red pepper named for the region in China where they are believed to be indigenous. These threads are approximately a half millimeter wide and about three inches long. They are reddish orange in color. The threads can be used “as is”, toasted or rehydrated. Because these threads are very pliable they can be used as a visually spectacular garnish and will provide a nice touch of heat. Gently toasting them in a dry skillet enhances the flavor. You’ll only need to toast them over medium heat for about one minute. They can also be soaked for about 10-15 minutes in warm water. Add to hors d’oeuvres, salads, soups or stir-fries. They can also be used as a garnish on kimchi. You can also use these to make a chili vinegar. Add approximately 1 oz of the threads to a 1 cup glass jar and then fill the jar with your favorite vinegar, add a dash of salt, a pinch of sugar and tightly close the jar lid. Let the flavors marry for about 7 days at room temperature then strain.
