Spicy exchange / 2022
We all know peppers have capsaicin...
Oregano and cilantro also have a small amount of capsaicin, but little enough that they do not taste spicy. They have small enough quantities that they still rate 0 on the Scoville scale.
Ginger can feel spicy in your mouth and throat, but it does not contain any capsaicin either. Instead, it contains a spicy compound called gingerol.
