Thai researchers have developed a portable device – whimsically shaped like a chilli pepper – that can assess how ‘hot’ a pepper will be by detecting how much capsaicin it contains.  Chilli peppers are a popular food ingredient around the world. But all types of chillis contain different levels of capsaicin. This is a compound that gives chilli peppers their kick and may give a palate-singeing burn to people not used to spicy foods.
