Jalapeño Popper Chicken Sandwich, with
heat coming from many sources. It starts with
Wendy's iconic spicy chicken fillet then gets
topped with jalapeño cream cheese, six slices
of jalapeños and a slice of jalapeño pepper jack
cheese, along with other toppings.
" Inspired by classic jalapeño poppers fans
know and love, my culinary team took the
familiar flavors of the beloved appetizer and
gave it a unique Wendy's twist, " said John Li,
vice president of culinary innovation. " Each
bite is graced by the perfect balance of creamy,
cheesy goodness and a crispy crunch, topped
with an unbeatable kick from the jalapeños
that will have your taste buds thanking us. "
Carl Loredo, chief marketing officer, said,
" The innovation on flavor is unlike anything
else out there. "
MANAGING HEAT
So how do you get to that perfect combination
of flavor and heat? It's all about managing
capsaicin levels in order to allow the flavor of
spices and chili peppers to be tasted.
All chilis belong to the genus Capsicum, with
each chili pepper possessing unique tastes and
aromas because of the varying combination of
the hundreds of different chemical compounds
found in them. It is the odorless, tasteless,
crystalline chemical compound known as
capsaicin that stimulates nerve endings in the
mouth and skin, triggering production of a
neurotransmitter that signals the brain that the
body is in pain, specifically because it is on fire.
The concentration of capsaicin, which
is referred to as the chili's pungency, is
measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This
was originally determined using a test that
measured the degree to which a chili pepper
solution must be diluted before capsaicin was
no longer detectable to a professional taster.
Today a less subjective test - high-performance
liquid chromatography - is used to analyze
capsaicin content. Heat is still described in
SHU, with pure capsaicin topping out the
Scoville scale at 16 million SHU.
The Carolina Reaper is among the world's
hottest chili peppers, averaging 1.64 million
SHU, with some peaking at almost 2.2 million
SHU. While the pepper is said to have a fruity
aroma and flavor, most taste buds never
get the chance to taste it. Bell peppers, on
the other hand, which are also part of the
Capsicum genus, lack capsaicin. They score
zero on the Scoville scale. This is why the
bell pepper's flavor is fully tasted and is
noticeably different between the different
colored cultivars.
Managing heat and flavor varies with chili
pepper. With some, heat may come on fast and
with others, it may be slow. Some strike and
vanish, while others linger.
Applying the chili pepper heat through a
fatty delivering vehicle, such as an oil-based
sauce or glaze, or even a slice of cheese, will
allow for more flavors to come through. This
is because capsaicin is soluble in fat and it
gets more evenly dispersed in the system,
Horseradish
gets its heat
from a colorless
compound
called allyl
isothiocyanate.
Some like it hotter than others
A recent OnePoll survey of 5,000 Americans - with 100 people in each of the 50 states - showed that
regardless of what state they're from, 37% consider themselves to be a " spicy food aficionado. " Yet,
less than a fifth of respondents (15%) said they can tolerate their food at a " very spicy " level. Conducted
on behalf of the TUMS brand of antacids manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, Philadelphia, 43% of
respondents admitted they like to " test their limits " when trying foods with a kick. Six in 10 respondents
said they consider themselves an adventurous eater and enjoy trying new and interesting foods. Almost
half (48%) of the respondents said that they feel more adventurous when trying spicy foods with others
than doing so alone. But all states are not created equal. New Mexico residents believe they are the
champions when it comes to their tolerance for eating spicy foods, according to the research. New
Mexico was followed closely by Louisiana and Texas, which were tied for second place. Arizona and
California were tied for fourth, with New York taking fifth place.
