Hot Pepper

Hot Pepper (Red Pepper / Sun-dried Pepper)

Hot pepper is an essential food for Korean tables.

Its hot taste comes from ‘capsaicin.’  Because of its hot and spicy nature, hot pepper is good for those who often experience stomach indigestion due to the coldness of their bodies.  The hot taste promotes digestion by stimulating the salivary gland and gastric gland to secret more gastric acid.

Hot pepper also contains a lot of vitamins A and C.

After spending a lot of time inside air-conditioned rooms, we can easily develop various respiratory diseases.  Vitamin A enhances resistance against these diseases.  Vitamin C in hot pepper is about 20 times greater than that in apples.  Also, capsaicin keeps heat from oxidating vitamin C.  Hot pepper is harvested between August and late September.
