Red Pepper Flakes

Red Pepper Flakes


Red Pepper Flakes, Capsicum annuum are also called crushed red pepper flakes, hot pepper flakes, or red pepper chili flakes.


Red Pepper Flakes are primarily used for heat and add sharp, biting flavor.


These Red Pepper Flakes are hot, measuring 32,000 – 48,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units).


When cooking with Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, add them at the beginning of the cooking time if you want a mellower heat that will permeate the entire dish. Add them at the end if you want the heat of the peppers to come in sharper bites.


Red Pepper Flakes work well with most spices, lemon juice, lime juice, and coconut milk. Because they're typically a nightshade family member, they pair very well with potatoes and tomatoes.
