INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to compare three capsaicin extraction methods: Shoxlet, Ultrasound-assisted Extraction (UAE), and Shaker-assisted Extraction (SAE) from Habanero pepper, CNPH 15.192. MATERIALS AND METHODS The different parameters evaluated were alcohol degree, time extraction, and solid-solvent ratio using response surface methodology (RSM). RESULTS The three parameters found significant (p < 0.05) were for UAE and solvent concentration and extraction time for… CONTINUE READING
