For those of you who are buying Peppers (Please take note)

Capsaicin


The substances in chili peppers that give them their distinctive heat are called capsaicinoids. The primary capsaicinoid, capsaicin, is so hot that a single drop diluted in 100,000 drops of water will actually blister the tongue.

Depending on your sensitivity to capsaicin, you will either want to wear thin rubber gloves when you handle chilies, or handle them as little as possible and then immediately wash your hands in hot soapy water. With or without gloves, do not touch your eyes while you are cutting the chilies. And don’t forget to wash the utensils and cutting board after use.

The same caveats apply for dried hot peppers, with one additional caution: When grinding them (by hand or in a food processor or blender), be careful not to inhale the fumes or let them waft into your eyes.

The capsaicin is primarily concentrated in the pepper’s membranous ribs (and not in the seeds as is commonly believed), so removing the ribs can help to reduce the chili pepper’s bite. (Of course the seeds also impart considerable fire because they are in close contact with the ribs, so remove them, too.) With chili peppers, you will find that even those of the same type vary in hotness. So use the amounts given in a recipe as a guideline, but then add chilies a bit at a time, until the food reaches the amount of “heat” desired.

Oral Problems

Before capsaicin can get to your system, it must get past your mouth, and it can cause a variety of problems there. It’s caustic to mucous membranes and can literally burn your taste buds. To reduce burning in the mouth, you can try eating a banana, or drinking some milk. To avoid burning mucous membranes, wash hands with vinegar after touching hot peppers. If you can, wear gloves when dealing with capsaicin.

    Digestion Problems

    The heat of the capsaicin can cause reflux and heartburn when the pepper reaches your stomach and interacts with the acid there. This also can result in nausea. Capsaicin once had an undeserved reputation for causing ulcers, but research has shown that while it can aggravate ulcer pain, it does not cause ulcers to develop. As hot pepper passes through and out of your system, it can prompt painful, burning diarrhea. The more you eat, the more likely this is to occur.

    Asthma

    In high enough quantities, hot pepper can trigger an attack in asthma sufferers by causing air passages to spasm. This can be potentially dangerous if you don’t have an inhaler or medication nearby. You should stay away from hot pepper if you’re prone to bronchial problems, but if you’re surprised and inadvertently eat something containing hot pepper, antihistamines sometimes can help.

    Accidents

    Not all problems with hot pepper stem from eating it. If you use it in cooking and get any in your eyes, the result can be extremely painful and your eyes might tear profusely. Avoid rubbing them when you’re working with capsaicin products. Using gloves can be useful because if hot pepper remains on your skin, an uncomfortable stinging sunburn-like reaction can occur.

    Recommendations

    If you consume a high dose of hot pepper and it causes discomfort, eat something absorbent, such as bread. Your first instinct will be to gulp water, but this will only spread the capsaicin throughout your mouth and hasten its way to your stomach. Once you’ve eaten it, there’s little else you can do to mitigate the side effects until it passes your system. If you get it on your skin, remove it with water or vinegar. Numbing ointments, such as those purchased over the counter for toothaches, can help relieve mouth discomfort.
