OVERVIEW:

The stem-end appears to look like the eye of a bird, hence its name Bird's Eye pepper. It is slightly fruity and over twenty times hotter than a jalapeno. The strong spiciness of this medium-high heat chile pepper can have a delayed potency with the heat building as you eat and it will linger long after you stop eating.  It is used extensively in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine and is marvelous for marinades, soups, or sauces. Bird's Eye Powder adds color and seasoning to a variety of dishes including grilled and roasted beef or poultry and rice and bean dishes. 

 

Members of the nightshade family, chili peppers have a lot going for them. Capsaicin is the main bioactive plant compound in chile peppers and the more capsaicin it contains the hotter the chile pepper. Chile peppers have a long list of health benefits and will always provide you an abundance of vitamins and minerals. They are rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant compounds.
