The Best Dehydrated Peppers
The chili pepper is a staple in cuisines across the globe. There are hundreds of varieties of chili peppers, ranging from the trusty Jalapeno to the king of sting, the Carolina Reaper. At Golden Rootz, you can sample the best dehydrated peppers, each of which offers a unique experience.
So, what are the best dehydrated peppers? Bursting with nutrition and flavor, chili peppers have been used for centuries in cooking and medicine. The compound capsaicin is what gives chili peppers their spicy kick. But the burn isn't for naught; capsaicin packs powerful health benefits to ensure that you gain from the pain. Golden Rootz is proud to offer dehydrated scorpion pepper, the second hottest pepper in the world. At over 2 million Scoville units, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is second only to the Carolina Reaper, which sits at 2.2 million units. However individual peppers can vary, and it wouldn't be unusual for an overachieving scorpion pepper to pack more heat than an average Reaper. Our dehydrated scorpion pepper blend lets you experience true heat from the soil of Trinidad, made even more satisfying with a hint of sweet Pimento peppers.
Chili peppers aren't just tasty; they pack a surprising amount of vitamins and minerals. These include vitamin C, a staple in immune defense, and Vitamin A, the precursor to beta carotene. Vitamin B6 promotes healthy metabolism, and Vitamin K1 promotes healthy kidneys. You also get potassium, which promotes heart health, and copper, which supports brain health and works with other nutrients to protect your body.
Studies also show that chili peppers may help promote weight loss by keeping your appetite in check. The burning sensation of capsaicin may also literally help you burn fat. Few foods taste this good, are this good for you, and are this versatile for cooking.
