Is red pepper the same as cayenne pepper?
Red pepper is such a loose term, it's hard to be sure what someone could mean, especially as usage varies from place to place. It often means a hot pepper such as cayenne. Paprika is also a red pepper, and in Britain, a red pepper would be a sweet red pepper. Capsicum is the chemical in the hot peppers which make them hot. Capsicum is also used in topical pain creams to alleviate muscle pain. However, cayenne peppers are better known as red hot chili peppers, so they shouldn't be the exact same thing.

It supposed to be a blood thinner yet stop bleeding from what all the sites over the internet are saying. Personnally I've tried it, it did help my digestion. But I wonder if …its gonna cure my ulcer. All websites over the internet say YES!
You can, but the final product will not be the same. The point of using cayenne rather than red pepper flakes is that you want an even distribution of the spice throughout t…he final product creating a faint background of Chile heat, rather than the concentrated bits of pepper flake making each bite different in its amount of spiciness. It won't necessarily be a bad product, it just won't be quite what you were trying to make. Even if you use less red pepper flakes than the cayenne called for, it will taste spicier in a way your original recipe wouldn't. I'd recommend either leaving the ingredient out or substituting hot paprika

One teaspoon of red pepper flakes is equal to 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Since cayenne pepper is very hot, it should be used sparingly and to taste.
The term "bell pepper" implies that it's not spicy, but yes, unless you're talking about a SPECIFIC kind of pepper (i.e. Habanero, Jalepeno) they are the same. Take care. Red …pepper is also the name used to describe the hot pepper flakes used in Italian cooking. That's very different from red pepper meaning a bell pepper.
No, it is not. Depending on the brand you buy, commercial chili powder may not contain a single fleck of cayenne. Commercial chili powder is frequently made up of a mixture of… mild peppers and spices, including ancho and pasilla peppers, cumin, garlic, and oregano. To create a piquant savor in chili, hot peppers like cayenne, jalapeño, and habanero need to be added separately. Read ingredient labels. You may find a chili powder with cayenne or dried jalapeño in it, but it will be in combination with the other above-mentioned ingredients. That's the nature of chili powder.
No, not if you put it on it. Make sure that it doesn't get into its water supply. Then your plant will die. If you are trying to get squirrels away from your plant, its best t…o put cayenne pepper in front of your plants or a little on your plants. Remember, it does rain.

Cayenne Pepper: Perha…ps the greatest natural stimulant known, Cayenne has been called the single greatest "driver" of other herbs. No other herb is quite in this class making it a must for all formulas. Simply said, when you need to get an herb to any location in the body cayenne reins supreme. The uses of cayenne are so numerous that it has been claimed "the single greatest herb."

In folk medicine, it has been used for fevers, sore throats, respiratory infections, asthma, and digestive disturbances. Recent studies however, have shown that it can reduce the risk of developing arteriosclerosis by lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
