Our honey with infused chilies has a reference to Mexico, Central and South America, where peppers first appeared and spread around the world via the Portuguese and Spanish explorers.
The mexican smoked jalapeno, known as chipotle meco, and pimenton give the honey its strong flavor and smoked aroma, while the cayenne pepper and malawi chillies are responsible for its “hotness”.
Capsaicin, the substance contained in hot peppers, acts on body’s nerve cells. It increases metabolism, is analgesic and enhances blood circulation. It also helps the digestive process, it kills bacteria and is a prevention and therapeutic agent for gastric ulcer.
