Everything you need to know about chilli including recipes

In the world, there are two types of people: those who love chili and those who can’t stand it.

A mild kick of heat blows some people away, while for others, hot sauce is essential in their handbags (I carry a small bottle with me everywhere I go).

After a dinner of Indian food, I was surrounded by both lovers and haters of chilies. It made me wonder why.

Why can some people tolerate the spices and others not? Is it genetic? Is it genetic? Naturally,

After searching the web, I found answers to all my burning questions.

Why do some people enjoy chili?

There’s scientific proof why some people enjoy the kick.

The burning sensation that occurs when eating spicy foods is caused by capsaicin, which is the active component of chili.

What happens to the body when it is in contact with the skin?

The body releases endorphins to combat the “threat” of spice. This hormone indeed promotes relaxation and pleasure. This is why people love chili so much.

Does liking spicy food run in the family?

It may be your genetic makeup that is responsible for your liking of spices.

In an article published by Stanford University, The Dish On Science, researchers have conducted research on identical twins in order to determine similarities between them when it comes to spice tolerance.

The study concluded that “genetics accounts for 18-58% (of human spice tolerance) as identical twins are more likely to have similar spice preferences”. It could be that your obsession or hatred of spice is in your genes!

I wouldn’t say I like spicy food. Can I build my tolerance?

There’s a way to get on the spicy side!

According to an article published by Kean Health, you can desensitize your nerve endings, making spicy food less painful and more enjoyable. To build your tolerance, it’s best to introduce spicy foods to your diet gradually.

What does your liking for spicy food reveal about you?

Do you love thrills and all things exciting? You might love spicy foods if you’re a thrill seeker.

According to a Penn State study, thrill-seekers are linked with heat tolerance. Scientist Nadia Byrnes stated: “We predicted that sensation-seekers would rate spicy food higher and they did. Many people enjoy Asian food, which includes capsaicin, but also ginger, wasabi, and other chemical ingredients. They don’t consider it to be as intense.”

Chilli is good for you or not?

YES! A study conducted by the American Heart Association found that incorporating vitamin C-rich and antioxidant-rich ingredients into your diet could reduce your risk of dying due to cancer or cardiovascular disease and promote longevity. Due to their ability to create heat in the body, they’ve been proven to reduce the risk of diabetes type 2 and weight loss.
