Natural Capsaicin powder's content in different parts of pepper varies greatly. Generally speaking, it is abundantly present in the placental tissue and inner membrane of Capsicum fruits, the fleshy part of the fruit is also distributed in a small amount. The isotope tracing technique shows that the biosynthesis of capsaicin is through vanillamine and fatty branch. Specifically, vanillyl amine is synthesized with L-phenylalanine as the starting material and undergoes deamination, hydroxylation, esterification and other steps under the action of a variety of biological enzymes. In addition, L-valine is used as the starting material. The raw material, through the process of increasing the carbon chain for many times, the fat side chain can be finally obtained. Finally, under the action of capsaicin synthase, the two fragments can be "spliced" by amidation to obtain the final Natural Capsaicin powder.
