Chili is the fruits of plants that belong to the Capsicum and Solanaceae genus. The word Capsicum derives from the Greek word “kapsimo”, which means burn. When eaten, chilies give a sense of burning. In this chili product, we use two kinds of chilies: Capsicum annum (Bell peppers, paprika, early, New Mexican, jalapenos, Cubanelle, Charleston hot cayenne, Fresno Chile, pimento, Bulgarian carrot chili, Peter pepper, ornamental piquin, tepin, Thai hot, and chiltepin) & Capsicum frutenscens (Cayenne and Tabasco peppers). Chili is an essential spice used as a main ingredient in the everyday cooking around the world. Chili powder is made after grinding dried chilies with chili flakes and chili pods.
Chili is believed to have been part of the human diet since at least 7000 BC, when it was used in Mexico. It has been cultivated since 3500 BC by the Mexicans, who were using it as a spice in their cuisine. Christopher Columbus, who discovered America in 1493, brought it to the European cuisines. Chili found its way in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medical system. According to Ayurveda, chili has many medicinal properties, for instance it is a stimulant, it promotes good digestion, it increases the endorphins, and it is a natural pain killer to relieve pains.
