Managing Heat Delivery and Expression with Capsicum

Creating just the right amount of heat in a food product can be a difficult and delicate process. Kalsec® analytical and sensory research teams have worked for years to perfect the process of managing the amount and delivery of heat by isolating specific components from chili peppers (capsicum). Shown is an example of tongue mapping: a technique that shows the perception of heat on the surface of the tongue over a six minute period.


Quality and Innovation You Can Trust.
