An extra digestive enzyme, in tablet form, that deals with the active ingredient in chilli to counter the ring of fire effect of a very spicy dish.

       I thought that this was to be chili in ant-size package, so that its taste would be that of an ant's bite. Well, chili + ant(i)chili = bland chili.   

       Any takers out there?

       dare99: found your missing 'i'. Posted above.   

       neelandan: I think the idea is to enjoy the hot sensation in the mouth *then* take the pill to cool other parts of the digestive tract.   

       The active ingredient (can't remember what this is) is found in milk and therefore yoghurt. Drink lots of this after a hot chili or curry and it should help. The quantity you need to consume may make the size of the pill uncomfortably impracticable.

       No missing i. It's meant to be like antacid, but for chilli. Anti-chilli would react with chilli in a massive release of energy, (450000000000000J for a 5 gram chilli and antichilli, significant ring burnage). The milk solution seems to work for me orally, it takes the sting out but by the time it works its way through it seems to have worn off. A milk enama may work but NO!

       I am sure that formic acid would make it worse, if anything. BTW we were talking about ants before and I think the acid is probably why we don't eat them... much. love serendippy - can I borrow it?

       I think the combination of salt, lime and tequila is supposed to relieve the effects of chilli, whilst also having other positive qualities.

       I think thumbwax has succumbed to frostbite, would someone warm him with some body heat quick.

       Excellent. Casein capsule with a gelletine shell that will disolve by the time it gets to the exit. Delivering the drug to the desired area with comfort. Can sombody start a pharmcutical company and make this.

       [UnaBubba] In the US, the FDA (not the USDA) is responsible for regulating supplements under the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, but their regulation only extends to labeling of products and product safety. This would be considered a dietary supplement, not a drug, and therefore would not need full FDA approval with clinical trials showing effiacy.

       If you were to spell Chili with an extra 'l' in Texas, it would be grounds for execution.
thumbwax, Feb 04 2002

       I grew up in Texas. The whole state is a grounds for execution.

       Chili made from fire ants would be ant chili.

       Baked....or boiled, actually. I was backpacking, and low on food.....we added ants to our rice for spice.
