Cayenne pepper is widely used in cooking for its bright heat profile and can be added to seasoning blends, sauces, and sprinkled onto grilled vegetables for a spicy bite. Cayenne powder has traditionally been employed by cultures worldwide for its many healthful properties and can be found infused into oils, vinegars, and even herbal foot soaks. This cayenne powder is typically between 20,000 – 50,000 HU and considered moderately to highly 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.
