Notes：Because capsaicin will produce a burning sensation when it touches the human body surface, it is often used in food materials as a source of aroma or burning sensation (spiciness). The degree of burning sensation in food is measured by the Scoville scale
Scale to measure. Because the concentration of capsaicin in capsicum is not high, capsicum has become a typical source of capsaicin for safety considerations.

The best way to relieve the burning sensation in the mouth and throat is to take cold food or drink, such as yogurt, ice cream, cheese or milk; or sweet food, such as juice, sugar or candy. Because pure capsaicin is insoluble in water but soluble in fats and pure alcohol, the common advice is to eat oily foods such as buttered bread, whole milk or whipped cream to relieve the burning sensation and believe Oily foods can take away capsaicin.
