Jalamari Popper: “Combining favourite flavours”. Deep-fried calamari tubes this time filled with a jalapeno and cheese filling.
For a popping wild taste sensation.
What are the benefits of eating jalapenos?
Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene – an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That’s what makes the peppers spicy.
Studies have found that capsaicin can increase your metabolism, which increases the rate at which you use energy and burn fat stores. It can also lower your appetite, which may help you eat less than you normally would
Capsaicin is used to help relieve a certain type of pain known as neuralgia (shooting or burning pain in the nerves). Capsaicin is also used to help relieve minor pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis or muscle sprains and strains.
Combinations of horses and riders from Brazil, Germany, Ireland and Norway were suspended after initial tests showed the presence of capsaicin, which is widely used in topical ointments for the treatment of minor horse injuries. The substance is banned at the Olympics because it can also serve as a mild stimulant.
That must be what jolts you when you have a hit of capsaican.
