Random information on the term “HOT”:

Pungency (/ˈpʌndʒənsi/ (listen)) refers to the taste of food commonly referred to as spiciness, hotness or heat, found in foods such as chili peppers. Highly pungent tastes may be experienced as unpleasant. The term piquancy (/ˈpiːkənsi/) is sometimes applied to foods with a lower degree of pungency that are “agreeably stimulating to the palate”. Examples of piquant food include mustard and curry.

In colloquial speech, the term “pungency” can refer to any strong, sharp smell or flavor. However, in scientific speech, it refers specifically to the “hot” or “spicy” quality of chili peppers. It is the preferred term by scientists as it eliminates the potential ambiguity arising from use of “hot” and “spicy”, which can also refer to temperature or the presence of spices, respectively.

For instance, a pumpkin pie can be both hot (out of the oven) and spicy (due to the common inclusion of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, mace, and cloves), but it is not pungent. (A food critic may nevertheless use the word piquant to describe such a pie, especially if it is exceptionally well-seasoned.) Conversely, pure capsaicin is pungent, yet it is not naturally accompanied by a hot temperature or spices.
