So, what is oleorresina de pimenton?

Oleorresina de pimenton, also known as paprika oleoresin, is a highly concentrated extract derived from dried red peppers. This deep red, viscous liquid is prized for its unique smoky flavor and intense color, making it a popular seasoning and coloring agent in various cuisines worldwide. The process of producing oleoresin involves extracting the oil-soluble compounds from the peppers using solvents like acetone or hexane, resulting in a highly concentrated and stable product that can be easily added to foods. Oleorresina de pimenton is commonly used in meat products, soups, sauces, and snacks to add depth of flavor and a distinctive reddish hue.
