What is trixaicin?

Are you a fan of spicy food? Do you enjoy feeling like your taste buds are on fire, while your face is sweating profusely? Well then, have I got news for you! Introducing trixaicin – the newest player in the spicy game.

But wait, what exactly is trixaicin and why should we care about it? Buckle up my dear readers because we’re about to dive deep into all things trixaicin.

A Brief Introduction to Spices

Before we can fully appreciate what trixaicin brings to the spicy table, let’s take a moment to understand why people even bother with spices in the first place.

Spices have been used by humans for centuries not only as flavor enhancers but also for medicinal purposes. For example, cloves were used by ancient Chinese as an analgesic during dental procedures (ouch), ginger was utilized by sailors to combat sea sickness (hooray) and turmeric has been traditionally applied topically in India as an anti-inflammatory agent.

So simply put folks – spices add taste to our boring ol’ food and offer health benefits too!

The Scoville Heat Scale

Now that we’re clear on how awesome spices truly are, let’s talk about heat levels or more accurately measured by Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). This scale was created by Wilbur Scoville who wanted a way of quantifying heat levels so he took capsaicin- the active compound found chilli peppers- extracted it with alcohol and diluted it until no one could feel any spiciness; this dilution ratio became his scale reference point.

The SHU level indicates how much capsaicum oleoresins exist which determines its spiced intensity; bell peppers score 0/±100 shu whereas Habanero score at 100,000/500,000 shu.

Enter Trixaicin

Now that we have an understanding of how spice heat is measured, let’s get back to our introduction – trixaicin. It’s a compound created by the pharmaceutical company SCYNEXIS with the aim of treating and alleviating pain in those suffering from various health conditions such as psoriasis and osteoarthritis.

Weirdly enough though, they realized trixaicin shares similar structures to capsaicum oleoresins meaning it also delivers intense spiced sensation if ingested or applied on skin- which results in profuse sweating while feeling excited& terrified (kinda like going for a rollercoaster).

How Does It Compare to Popular Spices?

So now you’re probably wondering “how does trixaicin hold up against other popular spices?” Excellent question! Let’s compare its SHU level using our handy chart below:

Spice Scoville Heat Units
Trixaicin 44.7 million
Carolina Reaper Pepper 2.2 million
Ghost Pepper 1 million
Habanero Pepper 100,000–350,000

Yes you read that correctly folks – 44.7 MILLION on the Scoville Heat Scale! That means it is about half as spicy than actual police pepper spray (or so I’ve heard).

But before your taste buds start quivering just thinking about trying this super hot spice out themselves there is something important to remember; since Trixacian has not been tasted or consumed by anyone due being exclusively dedicated totreating pains only it remains hidden behind college walls thus no one knows what much consumption this implies without risking catastrophic side-effects.

As always with unbelievably spicy substances eaten carelessly: be careful!

Is It Even Safe?

You mustn’t mess around with the spice shelf or even dare to get close without protective gloves& equipment. That’s why our beloved scientists are working hard to make sure nothing evil or harmful comes out of it.

In terms of safety and side effects, since trixaicin is still in its early stages, there isn’t too much information available yet regarding potential risks or consequences. But preliminary clinical testing suggests that topical applications have been well-tolerated and adverse events rare but required individual testing for specific situation as every physicality has a different reaction spectrum.

What Can You Do With It?

So now you’re wondering – “how can I use this mysterious spice?” Well fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your level of risk-taking) trixacian hasn’t made it onto supermarket shelves yet; but if ever released we definetely expect:

  • People could mix one drop into their smoothies
  • Add half a teaspoonful to their soup/stew
  • A sprinkle for an extra kick while making chocolate brownies

But realistically you can see how potent Trixacain spices result insane spiciness and difficulty in using safely thus NOT RECOMMENDED. Stick to other reasonable options please!


And there folks, concludes our deep dive into what tripitation is all about! For those brave enough, perhaps one day we’ll be able to sample it ourselves whilst sitting outside cooling down under bright sunshine…at least that should help soften the intense many heat intensity levels by degrees and save us from some unexpected spicy disaster!!

Remember kids when it doubt start low & go slow👍😉!
