Extract, Chile Extract, Pepper Extract, Chile Pepper Extract are classified as Additives and as such, they were never meant to be consumed directly. Chile Extract will usually come with a disclaimer that will make the buyer aware of the dangers of direct contact and consumption.
Chile Extract – Purpose:
Chile Extract was created to be added to other products to increase the existing heat level.
The bottom line is this, if your food doesn’t taste good, it isn’t worth eating! The trick to making great Fiery Food is to nail down the exact flavor you are looking for and then kick it up with an Chile Extract. The hotter the additive is, the less change in flavor. Ex: If you add a drop of extract that measures 2,000,000 Scoville units or 200 drops of hot sauce that measures 10,000 Scoville units, which one do you think will have less of an impact on flavor? Obviously the additive is the right choice.
The same goes for your favorite Hot Sauce, Wing Sauce or BBQ Sauce. You may love the flavor, but the heat level might not be where you want it to be. Just add Chile Extract one drop at a time, and you can bring these sauces up to the desired heat level without changing the flavor.
Here are a few more uses: Salad Dressings, Spaghetti Sauce & ALL other Sauces, Pesto, Salsa, Marinades, Spicy Snack Recipes, Pizza Recipes, Etc.
Top quality Chile Extract can be used to add the desired heat level in ANY recipe WITHOUT adversely changing the flavor!
