About the product

Cayenne pepper comes from a dried hot chilli, taking its name from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana. Its heat level usually falls between 5,000 and 50,000 Scoville Units (SHU). India is the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of chillies in the world, contributing 40% of the total world production. The yield of ground cayenne is around ¼ of the weight of fresh peppers. A small sprinkle acts as a flavour enhancer, rounding out the flavours in many unbalanced dishes.
