Dried & Crushed Chilli Flakes with Flavour & Spice

The Chilli No. 5 collection of gourmet chilli flakes is sure to take your food to the next level of heat. With a variety of very strong heat levels ranging from 400,000 to 2.2 million Scoville, our beautiful large dried and crushed chilli flakes will add an extra kick to any meal and will have you coming back for more! Our range is made up of 5 of the best chilli flakes in the world, including crushed Carolina Reaper, macerated Habanero, compressed Ghost, pressed Scorpion and the Chilli No. 5 special blend of dried crushed chilli flakes mixture from all the other chilli types.

The method for crushing and drying chilli flakes at Chilli No. 5 involves several steps:

1) the chillies are imported from the chilli producer and the stems are removed
2) the chillis are dried using a dehydrator or we hang them to dry naturally depending the season. We have to dry the chillis at the right temperature and for the right duration to get the perfect colour, shape, flavour and spice level
3) Once the chillies are fully dried, we crush the chillis into flakes in London or in the south of France. This process doesn’t involve grinding; instead, the dried chillies are crushed or pulsed. The goal is to create flakes, not powder. At Chilli No. 5 we like large flakes so the maceration has to be controlled. We don’t like some people achieve this by placing the dried chillies in a bag and crushing them by hand.
4) The dried and crushed chilli flakes are bottles into the tubes and stickered, packed and sent out for sale as individual units or in the chilli flakes gift set.

How long to chilli flakes last?

 

Dried chilli flakes have a long shelf life when stored properly. Whole dried chilli peppers can last up to four years. They can even last longer, up to five years according to some sources, but they might start to lose some flavor after a few years.

For best results, store chilli flakes in a cool, dry cupboard or even in the freezer. It’s also important to keep them in an airtight container to prevent moisture and other contaminants from affecting their quality.

While chilli flakes may still be safe to consume after these time frames, the flavor and heat of dried chillies can diminish over time.
