Paprika Oleoresin is extracted from sweet paprika (Capsicum annum). The carotenoids contained in this pigment give a color between red and orange which is great to use in foods and seasonings. After the solvent extraction, an oil-soluble oleoresin is obtained and if blended with stabilizers and emulsifiers, we can get a water soluble product as a powder great for meat manufacture.
