Why is pepper hot?

Why is pepper hot?Something really amazing- capsaicine.Pepper contains a chemical called capsaicin. A fiber capsaicin mainly exists in chilli seeds in package. The chemical name is 8 - 6 - decene vanilla amine, its molecular formula is C18H27NO3

Capsaicin is the active component of chili peppers, which are plants belonging to the genus Capsicum. It is an irritant for mammals, including humans, and produces a sensation of burning in any tissue with which it comes into contact.Capsaicin and several related compounds are called capsaicinoids and are produced as a secondary metabolite by chili peppers, probably as deterrent against certain herbivores and fungi.Pure capsaicin is a hydrophobic, colorless, odorless, crystalline to waxy compound.


Eating chili is too spicy. What should I do?

Being hot peppers makes people uncomfortable, so how can you reduce this burning sensation?Many people choose to drink water to eliminate hot food. In fact, ice water is not the best way

The best way is to drink yogurt, Milk dilutes the concentration of stomach acid and has the effect of alleviating the spiciness.
