What is paprika? About the ingredient paprika. Including 1,857 recipes with paprika, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Paprika is a spice made from the grinding of dried fruits of Capsicum annuum (e.g., bell peppers or chili peppers). 

Paprika is used as an ingredient in a broad variety of dishes throughout the world. Paprika is principally used to season and color rices, stews, and soups, such as goulash, and in the preparation of sausages as an ingredient that is mixed with meats and other spices.

Capsicum peppers used for paprika are unusually rich in vitamin C. Much of the vitamin C content is retained in paprika, which contains more vitamin C than lemon juice by weight. 

Paprika is also high in other antioxidants, containing about 10% of the level found in açaí berries. Prevalence of nutrients, however, must be balanced against quantities ingested, which are generally negligible for spices.
