Peppers Chili Oleoresin
Look at almost any Hot Sauce and you will come across  Chili Pepper Oleoresin, Oleoresin Capsicum or Chilli Extract. This is a concentrated extract from the fruit of the chilli plant. It is made by mixing an organic solvent (commonly ethyl alcohol) with the chilli mash, extracting the liquid and then gently heating it to evaporate the solvent. This leaves behind just an oily red mixture that contains the capsaicinoids and colorants. Manufacturers use Chili Oleoresin to add a controlled amount of heat to their products.
