What makes our Aleppo pepper flakes awesome?

😋 GREAT TASTE: The Aleppo pepper known also as Maras pepper or Halaby pepper has a moderate heat level, mild, with its heat building slowly, with a fruity flavor.

🍲 SPICE UP YOUR FOODS: Aleppo Pepper is a great way to make a variety of foods taste better including kebab, grilled meat, fish and vegetables, or any other dish in which you use crushed red pepper flakes or paprika.

❤️HEALTHY: Marash pepper has minimal salt and oil added. This makes it healthier. It is 100% vegan, and both lactose and gluten-free.

👝RESEALABLE: To keep its freshness and maintain superior taste from opening to its expiry date, we use high-quality resealable craft paper for packaging.

🏺DISCOVER THE HISTORY: In Arabic, the pepper is named after Aleppo, a long-inhabited city along the Silk Road in northern Syria, and is grown in Syria and Turkey.

Marash pepper also known as Aleppo pepper or Halaby pepper is made from carefully selected brightest ones among the pepper harvest. The peppers are dried in the sun and ground using slow-turning stone wheels. So the flakes are thinner. It has only minimal salt and oil added.

That makes our Maras pepper healthier. As only the best quality ones are chosen, it gives a bright red/burgundy color. Unlike crushed red pepper, the flakes contain no inner flesh or seeds so it has more fruity and milder taste. The Aleppo pepper has a moderate heat level of about 10,000 on the Scoville scale and it is categorized as moderate pungent.

Allepo pepper is the third most commonly used spice, after salt and black pepper in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine for dishes like kebabs, grilled meat, fish, hummus, and muhammara. It is a variety of Capsicum annuum and the most common use is in the form of crushed flakes.

Marash pepper is a geotagged product in Turkey and it is standardized by the Turkish patent and Trademark Office. It is also known as Pul biber in Turkish and فلفل أحمر in Arabic.
