Paprika Oleoresin

Paprika Oleoresin is a natural red pigment extracted from the peel of red peppers of the Solanaceae family. It is a lutein-type conjugated polyolefin oxygen-containing derivative. Its main components are Capsanthin and Capsorubin. Before being extracted, it is stored in the complete cell tissue of the pepper fruit. Because it is protected by the cell membrane and certain components in the cell and forms lipids, when the capsicum red pigment is extracted, due to the loss of biological protection mechanisms such as cell membranes, Paprika Red Pigment will produce an auto-oxidation reaction under aerobic conditions, and external factors will accelerate its oxidative decomposition and cause fading. The content of Capsaicin and Capsanthin in peppers varies depending on the pepper variety, origin, harvest period and drying conditions. Most of the Paprika Oleoresin extracted at present is a mixed chemical compound with Capsorubin and Capsorubin as the main body.
