Master Pow's Co. promises to provide you with an experience to appreciate the essence of the use of hot chili peppers in each one of our hot chili pepper products.
Get to know the peppers we use.
We use some of the world's hottest peppers, offering an array of options. We pride ourselves in sustainability, including growing our own peppers in Montclair, NJ, free of pesticides and with lots of love and care in our urban garden.
Due to seasonality when we aren't able to grow our own peppers we work with local farms and farmers to grow our peppers and/or do our best to source our peppers responsibly with the same practices and values we have.
Below learn more about the chili pepper we use.
The chili pepper (also chile, chile pepper, chilli pepper, or chilli), from Nahuatl chīlli (Nahuatl pronunciation: [ˈt͡ʃiːlːi] (listen)), is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum which are members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae. Chili peppers are widely used in many cuisines as a spice to add heat to dishes. The substances giving chili peppers their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and related compounds known as capsaicinoids.
