Red vs. Green Sichuan Pepper: Many people are unaware that Sichuan pepper comes in two varieties - Red and Green. They are not in different stages of maturity but two plants with distinct flavors (think of red wine grapes and white wine grapes). Both are native to Sichuan, and while the red ones have been used in cooking for thousands of years, the green variety is more boutique and has only become popular in China in the past 20 years.

Ingredients: First-grade, cold-pressed, non-GMO rapeseed oil, Fresh Red Sichuan Pepper

About the brand

When scientists at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London studied Sichuan Pepper, they found that the β€œfrequency of the tingling induced by Sichuan Pepper was consistently at around 50 Hertz”, giving rise to our company’s name. 50Hertz sources its Sichuan Peppers directly from farmers. Sichuan peppers are handpicked as automation has not arrived. While avoiding the thorns, farmers need to work carefully to preserve the peppers and keep them intact. This also reduces the presence of stalks and leaves, ensuring better flavor. Handpicking requires a dexterous, attentive and experienced labor force - notice the sharp thorns on the branches in this short clip. Enjoy this precise & valuable art in each bite!
