Red chilli flakes have an abundance of cooking and health benefits. This multi-beneficial spice does everything from brightening flavour in dishes to preventing diseases. From pastas to salads, a dash of red chilli flakes can liven up a dish in seconds, adding a little bit of that spicy kick. In small doses, they don’t overwhelm your food, they add a hint of flavour. If you’re watching your salt intake, chilli flakes can be an excellent alternative.
They’ll add the much needed flavour without packing in the sodium. They are also amazing at helping to clear your congestion during cold and flu season and/or allergy season. That’s because the spicy heat found in the flakes helps clear the mucus stuffing up your nose and lungs.
