A. C. Legg Old Plantation Ground Red Pepper 60 HU
Thought to have originated in Cayenne, French Guiana, Cayenne Pepper is a finely ground spice derived from several varieties of dried hot peppers, including the fiery seeds and membranes of hot chili peppers. Cayenne pepper is sometimes labeled "ground red pepper," though it has no connection to black table pepper. Cayenne pepper is a concentrated source of capsaicin, the phytochemical that gives chilies their heat. In fact, the "high" that some people experience when eating cayenne pepper-spiked foods is from the capsaicin, and is perfectly safe: Scientists theorize that in response to the discomfort produced by the "burn," the brain releases endorphins—substances which, at high levels, can create a sensation of pleasure.
