Organic cayenne powder comes from organic cayenne fruits, which are long thin pods native to Central America. It adds a hot and spicy kick to many dishes, including Mexican inspired fajitas and tacos, and Indian inspired curries and stews. Cayenne pepper can also be used in marinades, added to chilli dishes or sprinkled over dips for an extra spicy kick.
Cayenne powder has also recently become a popular ingredient in detox drinks due to its therapeutic properties. It has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines to treat digestive and circulatory issues, and is used topically to relieve muscle and joint pain. It is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and antioxidants, which help protect the body from free radicals generated during stress or disease. It is also high in niacin, pyridoxine, riboflavin and thiamin.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended. Our cayenne powder is certified organic, but is currently packed down in a facility which is not yet certified.
