Joel Friant: Shaking Healthy Heat

The only thing that makes a dish better is a dash of heat! From eggs to pizza, peppers, and their exquisitely harvested hot properties from these wonderful vegetables, is finding it’s way into the diets of people across the globe. Amazingly, if we add a few vitamins, like famed creator of “The Habanero Shaker” has, this becomes the best stuff on earth. Joel Friant created this wonderful product that has taken the best spicy qualities of the habanero chile pepper, reputed to be one of the very hottest and flavorful peppers on earth, and put that heat into a healthy shaker.

 

This can be sprinkled on most anything, and to turn up the heat, just add a little more. There is an absolute referendum in society that they want their heat, so it is no wonder that this shaker has made a recent comeback. It was originally introduced in 1995, and it has recently been reintroduced to the marketplace.

 

Habanero peppers contain lots of capsaicin, in fact some of the highest amounts of this little-understood, naturally-occurring ingredient in these very hot peppers. What we do know about capsaicin is that it triggers your brain to produce and release endorphins, which is the body’s natural painkiller. This could well be the secret reason why so many love spicy peppers nowadays.

 

There might be little wrong with enjoying hot sauce and it’s subsequent pain-soothing properties and lucky for all of us, Joel Friant left real estate and the home remodeling industry, going into the restaurant business just over 2 decades ago. His first foray into the restaurant business spawned “The Habanero Shaker,” and then he returned to real estate, only in mortgages this time.

 

Now he is back, after the mortgage crisis cooled that market a bit, Mr. Friant started to focus on how he had become so good at what he does, and decided to start bundling his ideas into articles that have widespread distribution, not the least of which is his “The Income Thermostat.” Currently dabbling in the very hot cryptocurrency, this seems an appropriate time to bring his Habanero Shaker back to market. His timing is likely very good indeed.
