Why buy the powder over the flakes or whole peppers?
Dissolves easily making for a more constant heat level throughout the dish.
The powder is a combination of thousands of Bhutlah peppers. The heat level will be the average heat level of those peppers. This allows us to provide you with a more consistent product for use in recipes. While the heat level will vary from crop to crop the variation will be less noticeable compared to purchasing the whole peppers where heat differences between every single pepper will be much greater.
Cheaper to ship compared to whole peppers. The volume of powder is much less than the volume of whole peppers and flakes.
