Cayenne Pepper Powder is made from a unique type of chile pepper with a spicy and pungent taste. The pepper is then dried and ground into a powder. It is most commonly blended with vinegar to create hot sauces.
The environment that the cayenne pepper is grown in effects its heat and flavor profile. Milder cayenne chile peppers tend to be grown in cooler, wetter environments.
This cayenne pepper powder clocks in at 30,000 scoville heat units. While this is “mild” compared to our other ground cayenne, it’s still a medium heat chile. In fact, it’s still 3x hotter than the average jalepeno.
Don’t underestimate this chile pepper. We recommend adding ground cayenne in small pinches until you’ve reached your desired heat level.
We also offer a high heat cayenne pepper powder that clocks in at 90,000 scoville heat units.
