After all, what kind of chilli is deadly to eat? Is the chilli that we eat by adding it in chips and noodles dangerous? What is this capsaicin after all?

What exactly is capsaicin?
According to a BBC report, capsaicin is a compound that gives chilli its extremely spicy taste and burning sensation. We realize this only after eating it. About 23 different capsaicinoids have been found in chilli, the most powerful of which is capsaicin. Dihydrocapsaicin is also found, which gives the same taste but is less spicy. It is so dangerous that it is not allowed to be added to food items in Britain. Similar warnings have been issued in Denmark and Germany as well.

What happens when you eat capsaicin?
Chilli with high capsaicin content activates the pain receptors. This causes severe pain in the body. It causes swelling. Heartburn, vomiting, diarrhea and even blood pressure can become uncontrolled. Eating too much can cause dizziness and can even be fatal. Now you must be wondering how much quantity causes this problem, so let us tell you that the British agency BFR says that if any food item contains 0.5 to 1 milligrams of capsaicinoids, it can cause a lot of harm. Nowadays it is used in many spicy chips and spicy dishes.
