Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to capsaicin palmitate (CAS RN 1002331-03-4) and capsicum oleoresin (CAS RN 8023-77-6). Capsicum oleoresin is an oily organic resin derived from the fruit of plants in the Capsicum genus, such as chili peppers. When the plants are finely ground, capsicum oleoresin is formed after the extraction process of capsaicin using organic solvents such as ethanol. It is commonly used as a culinary spice. The intensity of biological actions and toxicological effects of capsicum oleoresin are a direct function of the amount of capsaicinoids, or capsaicin, present in the compound. The capsaicinoids present in the Capsicum fruit are predominantly capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin, making up 80 to 90%.
