The report joins an extensive collection of articles published on the company’s blog to educate the public on the properties and benefits of spicy foods, and to accompany their range of craft sauces and marinades.

Collating data from various scientific publications, the article claims that, other than humans, tree shrews and birds are the only species that enjoy and seek out spice in their food.

Spicy food derive their heat from a chemical called capsaicin. When eaten, it triggers a receptor known as TRVP1, which mimics symptoms of intense heat in the body.

Most animals avoid hot foods such as chilies, but not all. Tree shrews are native to forest environments in South East Asia, and scientists have discovered a genetic mutation in their TRVP1 receptors which decreases their sensitivity to capsaicin.

Birds have very few taste buds, and they are indifferent to the effects of capsaicin. Sprinkling some hot sauce on bird feeders is an effective way to repel other animals, such as squirrels, keeping birds well-fed.
