Red Thai Chile Powder
Thai chiles are closely related to piri piri and birdseye chiles. Mostly popular in eastern Asian cuisines, these chiles are full of heat and authentic flavor. For our Thai Red Chile Powder, we grind Thai red chiles to a fine powder that easily imparts a vibrant red hue and strong, lingering heat.
Ready to use. Add to taste.
Storage & handling

Our Thai Red Chile Powder is ground from a variety of whole, de-stemmed Thai chiles with intensely hot flavor. In a powdered form, it can be used to add flavor and spice as well as the deep color typical of red curry. Typical of Thai chiles, this powder releases a strong, lingering heat. While these flavors are popular in Asia now, they have their origins in South America and Mexico and were not introduced to the region until the 15th century.
A member of the Capsicum family, Thai chiles are not only full of heat, but long regarded for healing abilities and health boosting properties. Ancient cultures have used the pepper to help with cardiovascular ailments, pain management and digestive issues.
The flavor of jaew sauce reflects the complexity of Thai cuisine, balancing salty, sweet, sour and spicy notes. Our Red Thai Chile Powder provides essential heat, while Galangal Powder and lime juice add brightness and acidity.
