Paprika Red Colorant

Short Description:

Capsanthin, a brightly orange-red-coloured pigment responsible for the peculiar red colour of paprika fruits (Capsicum annuum), belongs to xanthophylls, a class of oxygen-containing carotenoids. The characteristic chemical structure of capsanthin containing a keto group in conjunction with a long chain of 11 conjugated dienes is responsible for its strong radical scavenging and singlet oxygen quenching ability. 

Product Detail



An ideal colorant for food, pharmaceuticals, health products and cosmetics.

Chemopreventive, antitumour, skin photo-protective, anti-inflammatory, and antidiabetic activities demonstrated by capsanthin are a consequence of its potent antioxidant action. Anti-obesity, anti-adipogenic, and antihyperlipidaemic activities are some of the more important features of capsanthin. With natural origin, bright red color, and array of health benefits, capsanthin has a potential to be translated into a commercial cosmeceutical, nutraceutical, and/or pharmaceutical.

The properties and usage characteristics of capsaicin are inseparable from its composition. Capsaicin from chili peppers is a carotenoid pigment. The composition of capsaicin is complex, and the main components are capsaicin, capsaicin yucca, and R-carotene. Due to the difference of chili pepper varieties and chili pepper maturity, the content of paprika red pigment in chili pepper is different, and the composition of paprika red pigment is also different. Different chili varieties contain different components of paprika red pigment, and generally the quality of paprika red pigment is higher in chili peppers with good maturity. In production, the peppers from which the paprika red pigment is extracted are the ones with higher maturity.
