Organic Chili Pepper Flakes 35K H.U.

Our Chili Pepper Flakes are from the Guntur chili variety, and can add a medium spicy flavor to a variety of dishes.

Flavor profile & uses

Chili Pepper Flakes can add a richness of flavor and a medium heat, without being overwhelming. They can add flair to any American, Asian, Mexican, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and Creole cooking. Chili Pepper Flakes are the proper pepper to use when a recipe calls for the ingredient "red pepper flakes".

  • You can add the flakes to salsa, avocado dip, taco and enchilada sauces, vegetable dips, dressings, chili, pizza, and omelets for an extra zesty flavor.
  • You can even spice up a meat marinade or barbeque sauce with a shake of Chili Flakes.
  • Makes a delicious dipping sauce for bread when the flakes are infused in olive oil.
  • They are also often used as a table condiment, adding a pleasant heat and attractive appearance to any dish.

How is the heat determined for Cayenne & Chili Peppers?

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat of the cayenne and chili peppers, as reported in Scoville heat units (S.H.U. or H.U.), due to the capsaicin concentration. The substances that give the peppers their intensity when ingested are capsaicin and the related compounds known as capsaicinoids. The greater amount of these compounds there are in the chili, the hotter it is.

Warning: Excessive dose may cause gastrointenstinal irritation or heartburn, or exacerbate gastroesophageal reflux. Cayenne preparations irritate the mucous membranes and injured or broken skin.

Outstanding product and service

I am enjoying these chili pepper flakes tremendously. I have found all the spices I've tried so far to be very fresh and high quality. Before finding Starwest Botanicals, I searched extensively for gluten-free spices, as I'm extremely sensitive to even tiny amounts from cross-contamination. Several other companies were unable to provide any assurances that their products are gluten-free, having been processed on shared equipment with gluten-containing products. Starwest Customer Service has been outstanding in responding in a thorough and timely manner to my questions about their products.
