Organic Paprika Powder
One of the most common spices in the cabinet is Paprika. But most don’t know that this wonderfully versatile spice originates from hot peppers, particularly the fruits of the capsicum annuum plant.
But is it super spicy?
It depends. If you like it on the hotter side, choose cayenne. For a more mild heat, paprika is the common choice. Paprika can come in a lot of different varieties. While paprika does have a touch of spicy heat -- our Organic Paprika Powder is on the mild side of the spicy pepper spectrum. Oftentimes, some spicier paprika powders are cut from a hotter cayenne pepper. Our milder paprika won’t win any ‘hottest chili awards’ based on the heat index, but our Spanish paprika does have a nice warm smoky flavor.
The deep red paprika color mainly comes from carotenoids, such as capsanthin and capsorubin.
