Responding to the consumer’s desire for a more complex and flavorful heat, Kalsec has developed Fusionary Heat, an innovative line of heat delivery products. Fusionary Heat combines heat (pungency) with unexpected ingredient combinations to provide a unique sensory experience. Fusionary Heat creates a culinary dimension to heat expression by combining heat with elements such as savory, sour, sweet, and tangy. Featured Fusionary Heat products include Tangy Sweet Ginger, Spicy Orange, Herbal Jalapeno and Sweet-Roasted Chipotle.

“Fusionary Heat products are a logical extension of our Heat Management Platform, which will enable our customers the ability to provide consumers with a surprising new depth to their heat experience,” says Gary Augustine, Executive Director, Market Development. Fusionary Heat products follow the introduction of last year’s HeatSync Heat Systems designed to control the timing, intensity and location on the palate of heat delivered for a variety of applications. 

Other Kalsec Heat Management innovations include Szechuan pepper extract, ClearCap Super Soluble capsicum, encapsulated extracts and a complete line of specialty peppers that include ancho, chipotle, guajillo, habanero, and jalapeno.
