How Do I Stop Burning In My Mouth From Peppers?

Putting Out The Fire In Peppers

If you've ever bitten into a hot pepper and then tried to put out the tongue flames with water or a soda, you made the discovery that this is NOT the answer! Instead, try a sip of milk or a few bites of a dairy product like yogurt or cheese. A sip of an alcoholic drink will also douse the fire in your mouth. This works because of a certain protein (casein) in dairy and alcohol that neutralizes the enzyme released by the pepper.
