About the Product
Chili pepper pods are, technically, berries. When used fresh, they are most often prepared and eaten like a vegetable. Whole pods can be dried and then crushed or ground into chili powder that is used as a spice or seasoning. Chilies can be dried to prolong their shelf life. Chile peppers can also be preserved by brining, immersing the pods in oil, or by pickling.
While red chilies contain large amounts of vitamin C , other species contain significant amounts of provitamin A beta-carotene. In addition, peppers are a rich source of vitamin B6 .
