A very difficult-to-obtain product of the highest purity and quality - offered at unbeatable prices. Firehousechilli is offering Capsaicin extracted from naturally grown Capsicum annuum hot peppers, a material which is far more expensive and difficult to isolate than the synthetic capsaicin. Our Pure Capsaicin Crystals are of the highest purity available for your own uses.
Uses For Pure Capsaicin :
Pure Capsaicin is not particularly soluble in water, but will easily dissolve in oils and fats. You could easily create a superior fire-oil to flavour dishes without imparting a unwanted vinegar or hot peppery flavor, by dissolving a very small quantity of Capsaicin in a large volume of oil (Vegetable, Olive, Sesame, etc).If you are true chili head and want an oil as hot as the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Chili Pepper) which ranges from 800,000 - 1,000,000 Scoville heat units, to drop sparingly in chili dishes or other foods you want to make spicy, then 100mg in 2 grams of oil should be sufficient to give it a rating of 800,000 Scoville heat units.
In very small amounts , it can be used to spice up flavourful sauces that aren't as spicy as you would like, or to produce in the manufacture of your own "thermonuclear" hot sauces or salsas. Be sure to shake/stir it extensively and let it sit for a while to allow the Capsaicin to dissolve (it doesn't dissolve easily in aqueous solutions) and diffuse throughout the product. You can also mix with oil put in microwave for 15 seconds for the capsaicin to dissolve quicker.
It melts at between 144 and 149 degrees Fahrenheit, so aqueous mixtures at this temperature should allow for ideal homogenization of Capsaicin within your projects. It could also potentially be used as a deterrent to rodents and other mammalian pests.
