The main natural properties of non-GMO cayenne are derived from a chemical called capsaicin. Capsaicin is the ingredient which gives peppers their HEAT. A pepper's capsaicin content ranges from 0-1.5%. Peppers are measured according to heat units. The degree of heat determines the pepper's usage and value. Generally, the hotter the pepper, the more capsaicin it contains. Other constituents of cayenne are vitamins E, vitamin C and carotenoids.
