In 2019, Kalsec conducted a global study that dug far and wide into how people felt about heat and spice, covering everything from the number of people eating spicy food to the types of exact pepper varietals they prefer. Since then, it became the unofficial guidebook for developing hot new ideas. If you missed it, you should definitely check it out here.

What we found is that while preferences for heat and spice have continued to gain traction, several new nuances signify big opportunities for food and beverage managers.
