The Naga Morich is one of the hottest chili peppers in the world. Its spiciness is not "extreme", but rather "high", managing to exceed even 1,000,000 SHU.
In Sanskrit "naga" means "cobra" and, like the bite of that snake, the refined and complex burning that develops in the mouth is not felt immediately, but only after 5 to 7 seconds.
It has a herbaceous and fruity scent reminiscent of green lemon peel and tropical woods. The spicy burning feeling in the mouth is delayed (comes after a few seconds) and is accompanied by moderate vegetal notes and sweet hints of butter.
Perfect to enhance dishes with complex flavors, such as slow-cooked roasted meat and meaty sauces. Ideal in exotic sauces.
The Naga Morich is native to a vast region on the slopes of the Himalayas, between the Indian Assam and Bangladesh.
The berry is conical in shape, roundish at the end, up to 4cm long by 2cm wide. The color of the ripe fruit is a bright crimson red.
Particular low temperature techniques of humidity extraction have been employed for the production of this powder, making it possible to keep unaltered the original scent of the chilli pepper.
Among many of the healthy micro elements of the Naga Morich we can find: Vitamin A, which improves the condition of eyes, hair and skin; and Vitamin C, which not only stops the spread of free radicals, but is also useful and crucial in raising the barriers of our immune systems, thus lowering the risks of tumours by inhibiting the synthesis of carcinogenic substances. In addition, it’s scientifically proven that consuming chilli peppers at least 4 times a week halves the risk of cardiac arrest.
