What Is Cayenne Pepper?
It is a moderately hot chili pepper that is used to flavor dishes. It is generally skinny and red, 10 to 25 cm long, and has a curved tip. Also known as chili peppers, African pepper, capsicum fruit,
pimienta de cayena (in Spanish), and zanzibar pepper, cayenne pepper is a cultivar of Capsicum annuum (which is related jalapenos, bell peppers, and paprika).
Cayenne pepper contains a high amount of capsaicin that is responsible for most of its benefits. Capsaicin is also responsible for the fruit’s fiery hot flavor. The pepper is rated between 30,000-50,000 on the Scoville heat units (a measurement scale for the ‘hotness’ of a chili pepper).
