Its not only their taste!
Humans adore chillies for several reasons, including the fact that they add a unique and exciting flavor to food. Chillies also have a range of health benefits, including helping to boost metabolism and aid digestion.
One of the main reasons why humans enjoy chillies is due to their spiciness. Capsaicin, a compound found in chillies, triggers the pain receptors in our mouths and causes a burning sensation. This sensation can lead to the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and can create a feeling of euphoria.
Additionally, some studies have shown that eating chillies can help to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure. They may also have antimicrobial properties that can help to fight off infections.
The second part of the equation is in the taste. Chillies have a distinct flavour that is difficult to define, but yet very identifiable as being just that. They have a character of their own that is unmistakable. Describing the taste can best be done using terms like sweet, peppery, mustardy and savoury. This excellent flavour is further enhanced by cooking , grilling, drying and smoking. No other dish illustrates this better than Peri – Peri chicken.
Overall, humans have come to adore chillies for their unique taste and health benefits, as well as the pleasurable sensation they can produce.
