    ABSTRACT: "Los más importantes de los alimentos que tomaban los mexicanos diariamente eran el maíz, el frijol, el chile y la calabaza", dice el Códice Florentino. Desde tiempos pre-hispánicos, estos alimentos se han combinado de distin-tas maneras entre ellos y con otros ingredientes diversos, como carnes de varios animales e incluso carne humana, enriqueciendo la dieta de los habitantes del Nuevo Mundo. Aun hoy en día, estos ingredientes son la base de la alimentación de gran parte de los americanos, principal-mente los más pobres. El consumo de chile involucra una característica cultural persistente. Esto es verdad, comemos chile porque aprendimos a hacerlo de nuestros padres, pero también por su sabor y por su picor. En cierta forma, su consumo tiene un carácter lúdico pues puede resultar divertido. Sin embargo, desde nuestros ancestros, el chile, adictivo o no, ha proporcionado variedad a la dieta, y estimulación sensorial. Además, sin saberlo, hemos obtenido beneficios en nuestra salud a través de las propiedades de esta maravillosa especia del Nuevo Mundo.

    ABSTRACT: The colour pigments of five chili powders of different origins were separated and quantified by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC). The similarities and dissimilarities of pigment composition of chili powders were elucidated by principal component analysis (PCA). RP-HPLC separated 50-100 pigment fractions depending on the detection wavelength and on the origin of chili powder. It was found that the pigment composition of chili powders from Malaysia and China and from India and Pakistan show marked similarities while the composition of colour pigments of chili powder from Thailand was different. It was further established that the chromatograms are similar in the first 5-35 min of development, they are highly different between 35 and 75 min and moderately different at the end of the chromatograms. It was concluded that RP-HPLC followed by PCA can be successfully used for the identification of chili powders according to the composition of their colour pigments.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this work was to assess supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) of red pepper (Capsicum frutescens L.) oleoresins. The influence of pressure, and superficial velocity of supercritical CO2 at 313 K, on the Capsicum frutescens oleoresins yield and capsaicinoids content was studied. The central composite, non-factorial design was used to optimise the extraction conditions, using the Statistica, version 5 software (Statsoft). The results were compared with those obtained when n-hexane was used for the extraction of red pepper oleoresin in a Soxhlet apparatus. At 10 min of extraction time an optimal value of the yield was determined (5.2% (w/w)) for pressure of 21.5 MPa and superficial velocity of 0.071 cm s−1. An optimum value for the yield in capsaicinoids (0.252% (w/w)) occurred at 20.5 MPa and 0.064 cm s−1. The extract of the supercritical fluid process obtained at 21.5 MPa, 0.074 cm s−1 of CO2 superficial velocity during 10 min was chosen, in order to perform a sensorial analysis. Selected extract was suspended in extra virgin olive oil (0.7% acidity) at three capsaicinoids contents (0.0006% (w/w), 0.0011% (w/w) and 0.0015% (w/w)) and analysed in terms of pungency, aroma, taste and after taste. Commercial red pepper flavoured olive oil (0.0011% (w/w) capsaicinoids) was used as reference. Panel preferred taste of the olive oil added with extract that contains 0.0006% (w/w) of capsaicinoids. At this concentration SFE extract did not influence olive oil colour.
