HEALTH BENEFITS OF GERBS HABANERO PEPPER POWDER
Habanero Pepper Powder is the hottest of our pepper powders. We recommend adding small amounts at the beginning of a dish to bring out the full fruity, floral, and smoky flavors of the pepper. Add to your favorite Oil & Vinegar Salad Dressings, instead of paprika on deviled eggs, Mexican food, Chili, Meat and Southern Style Seafood, as well as Spanish Beans & Rice dishes.
Scientific studies have shown that consumption of Habanero Peppers can offer a beneficial effect against prostate cancer. Studies have indicated that the consumption of habanero peppers can be effective at fighting obesity because of the presence of capsaicin. According to the “Journal of Proteome Research,” capsaicin increases thermogenesis throughout the body. Thermogenesis is the process in which the body raises its temperature, or energy output. Increasing thermogenesis increases the body’s metabolism, which forces fat cells to be used as energy. The study published in the “Journal of Proteome Research” was performed by the Department of Biotechnology at Daegu University in Korea. The study confirms the presence of capsaicin increases thermogenesis and lipid metabolism, which is beneficial for the treatment of obesity. Amazing, right?
Like fresh habanero peppers, the powdered version contains compounds that are beneficial for health. How much of them you get depends on the serving size and your tolerance for heat. Here is a look at the nutrients in habanero powder:
Vitamins: Habanero pepper powder is a good source of vitamin A. You can get 7143 IU of it from a 0.25 g serving. The vitamin A content is largely a result of the beta-carotene in the fresh fruit, which is what gives these chili peppers their vibrant colors.
Fiber: Depending on which product’s ingredient panel you read, habanero powder can contain a reasonable amount of fiber.
Capsaicin: Capsaicin is the compound that gives hot peppers their heat. The intensity of the heat is directly related to the concentration of capsaicin. A relatively hot pepper like habanero will have more capsaicin when compared to a milder one like the jalapeño.
