  • What's strong paprika?

    Paprika is a vegetable but also the name of a spice derived from the sweet pepper or capsicum (Capsicum annuum). These two vegetables come from the Solonaceae family, as do tomatoes, aubergines, etc. Less hot than chilli powder, hot paprika has more flavour than classic paprika. Its aromas are close to those of dried tomatoes.

    The flowers of the peppers are white with 6 or 8 petals. Their pollen is irritating

    The paprika harvest

    Paprika is the fruit of the Capsicum annuum. It is harvested ripe before being dried. Once dry, it is crushed until a fine powder is obtained: the paprika powder.

    In Europe, paprika is increasingly being grown in greenhouses.

    Did you know that? In paprika, it is the seeds that bring a spicy taste. There are different varieties of paprika (strong or sweet) depending on whether you grind the fruit, the seeds or the tail.

    David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to offer you this strong paprika powder for its exceptional taste qualities. To sprinkle on your dishes, it brings a slightly smoky taste and a moderate spiciness to your recipes.

    The different varieties of peppers and chili peppers

    There are many varieties of peppers and chili peppers from the Capsicum annuum plant, including :

    • Anglet chilli pepper: a chilli pepper native to the south-west of France
    • Jalapeno pepper: A Mexican pepper whose spiciness varies from medium hot to hot. It is native to Jalapa in Mexico.
    • California Wonder Sweet Pepper
    • Valencia sweet pepper
    • The Mont Jolien pepper

    Did you know that? : There are more than 2,300 varieties of chillies and peppers

    Differences between sweet and strong paprika

    Sweet paprika comes from the flesh of the pepper. The strong paprika is made from the seeds and stems of crushed varieties of peppers to which a little chilli powder from strong to medium-hot has been added. It is called in this case: Paprika Royal.

    Difference between Spanish and Hungarian paprika

    Hungarian paprika is sweeter than Spanish paprika.

    The origins of paprika

    Paprika is native to South America. It was mainly found in an area between the southern United States and Mexico. It is an ancient fruit already cultivated 7,000 years B.C. Traces of paprika have been found in archives as a medicine for osteoarthritis and toothache, but also as a bargaining chip by the Mayan and Aztec civilizations.

    Its arrival in Europe follows the Spanish colonization. In Spain, paprika became an essential spice in less than a century, to the point of being confused with pepper.

    The sweet species of chillies and peppers were cultivated as early as the 17th century in Castile. It is from this period that they will start to be powdered so that they can be preserved and consumed all year round.

    When it arrives in Hungary, it becomes the flagship spice of traditional Hungarian cuisine. Cheaper than other spices and easy to grow, it will dethrone pepper. Today, paprika is the Hungarian national spice.

    Paprika nowadays

    Paprika is a spice that enjoys some protection, particularly in Spain where its production is regulated. Paprika from the regions of La Vera in Extremadura and Murcia has the AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) designation.

    Did you know that? With 14 million tons produced each year, China is the largest producer of peppers. Spain comes fifth in the ranking with just over a million tonnes grown per year


    Other uses of paprika

    Paprika has therapeutic properties. It is particularly rich in :

    • Potassium
    • Vitamins (especially vitamin C, B1 and B2)
    • Folic acid

    It is recommended for its action on digestion and to unblock the sinuses.

    In homeopathy, Capsicum annuum is recommended to treat inflammation of the throat, urinary tract and digestive tract. Paprika also helps against hair loss and the appearance of white hair and can also be used to cleanse the pores of the skin.
