Heat: The heat levels of chillies peppers are represented using Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Wilbur Scoville developed the technique in 1912 to measure capsaicin concentration in spices.

Whether you want chillies with high or low SHU, at FrutPlanet exporters, we can help you buy chilli peppers in bulk online effortlessly.

Chilli’s popularity has improved significantly as many more people have become aware of its benefits. Consumers don’t just buy fresh chilli peppers online just because of their characteristic hotness but are also appreciating its other benefits, including vitamins A, C etc.
The hotness in peppers is owed to capsaicin, an antioxidant that reduces the transmission of messages between pain nerves.
Boosts Metabolism. Chilli peppers contribute significantly to weight loss because they contain Capsaicin. The chemical heats your body and activates the sensory neuron. The neuron prevents the building up of fat in the body and curbs appetite.
Gets Rid of Migraines. What do you do when you have a migraine? Hot pepper can help you get rid of it by spraying some hot pepper on your nose. The capsaicin chemical in the pepper numbs the brain’s nerves. As a result, you will feel relieved of the tension, migraine and headache that could have brought up the aches.
Helps Control Pain. If you’re in pain but take pepper, the pain miraculously disappears. This is because chillies have capsaicin, a chemical that initiates the heat sensation on the nerves. As a result, the brain reads “Hot” instead of “Pain”, which explains why the pain disappears.
Soothing Arthritis Pain. Most arthritis creams and lotions use Capsaicin to bring the heat effect and replace the pain. Once the victim applies the lotion, capsaicin binds the pain receptors and brings about an intense burning sensation.
Prevents Cancer. According to experts, Capsaicin in chillies kills over 40 different types of cancerous cells. It’s effective in preventing the growth of cancer cells in the colon, liver, lung, and pancreas. The chemical alters the normal working of these cells to hinder their development.
Preserves food. Hot chilli pepper is a natural antimicrobial; it kills germs and other microorganisms that could destroy food. Researchers and experts are working on testing whether a chilli extract could be an excellent replacement for artificial preservatives.
It Fights Cold and Flu. Chillies pepper has beta-carotene, an antioxidant that’s rich in vitamin A. This vitamin is crucial in maintaining a healthy respiratory system. Vitamin A also plays an essential role in keeping your intestinal and urinary systems healthy. Once you buy fresh chilli peppers online at FrutPlanet, we source chillies that have been grown organically to ensure they have a high concentration of minerals.
Grading and sorting of chilli peppers mainly consider two factors; size and variety. Most customers who buy chilli peppers specify the type depending on the SHU. Therefore, our FrutPlanet team will sort out chilli peppers of the same category, regardless of size.
On the other hand, other customers buy chilli peppers but only specify that they need a larger size, so grading demands prioritising size before variety.
