About Whole Cayenne Pepper:

We use cayenne peppers mostly in cooking hot-spicy dishes. We also use them fresh and finely chopped or ground in a blender for adding to chilies, curries, or other spicy recipes. Cayenne pepper is usually sold as a powder or in a thin, vinegar-based sauce (hot sauce). It is generally rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Units. When young and green, they are less hot. Most of the heat is in the seeds. The hotness produced by cayenne peppers is caused by its high concentration of a substance called capsaicin. Technically referred to as 8-methyul-N-vanillyl-6-nonenamide, capsaicin has been widely studied for its pain-reducing effects, its cardiovascular benefits, and its ability to help prevent ulcers. Capsaicin also effectively opens and drains congested nasal passages. We could not find any nutritional information for whole cayenne peppers; however, you can see the full nutritional chart for ground cayenne pepper.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
