Discover the benefit of spiciness & the story of a family heirloom’s recipe that will spice up your life.
SPICINESS - ONE OF OUR BEST FELLAS
The spicy sensation is often misunderstood as a taste. In point of fact, spiciness is a kind of pain and warmth (in some cases, burning) in your mouth triggered by spicy foods. People have different spicy food tolerance. Interestingly, this ability can be acquired over time, meaning everyone can become a person with higher spicy food-threshold through exposure or lots and lots of practice. Thai food is known for its distinctive spiciness but “chili” one of the important ingredients does not originate from Thailand. Chilies were first imported dating back in Ayutthaya period or around 400 years ago and have since become one of the staple ingredients of Thai cuisine.
LET SPICINESS WORK THE MAGIC
People who have a liking for spicy certainly agree that the spicier the better. Apart from the pleasure of spiciness intake, chili does come with a pack of health benefits. Thanks large in part to the substance called “capsaicin” in foods seasoned with chilies. Capsaicin has a stimulating effect on the mucus membranes of the nose and sinuses. It helps reduce the risk of cancer, thanks to its antioxidants. For those on diet, say hello to your helper as capsaicin helps speed up your metabolism as much as 50% for up to three hours after eating. Additionally, it is not surprising to feel refreshed after eating spicy food as capsaicin triggers the release of endorphins magic, otherwise known as happy chemicals or the body’s natural painkillers.
