Identification and quantification of some capsaicinoids in padron pepper (Capsicum annuum L. var. annuum) fruits

, : Identification and quantification of some capsaicinoids in padron pepper (Capsicum annuum L. var. annuum) fruits. Acta Alimentaria Budapest 30(4): 373-380

Capsaicinoid and phenolic contents were determined at different maturation stages of the pepper fruit, with an increase being observed in the levels of both components. The increase in total soluble phenolics probably reflects the accumulation of capsaicinoids seen throughout development. Four different capsaicinoids and their precursor vanillylamine were identified in the cultivars studied.
