Also called Thai chili, these peppers are relatively small but quite hot with a hint of fruitiness. Bird’s eye chili powder provides a spicy kick to stir fry’s, omelets, stews, and marinades. This bird’s eye chili powder is between 75,000 – 125,000 HU and considered very pungent.
The burning sensation of hot peppers is a reaction of the central nervous system to capsaicin; unlike horseradish, wasabi, garlic, ginger, and mustard, capsaicin only causes the sensation of damage, not real damage to tissues.
