The Source Hot Sauce: The facts

The Source Hot Sauce is the hottest sauce on the market. The average bottle of tabasco sauce measures just under 8,000 Scoville units, but The Source Hot Sauce measures more than seven millions scoville heat units in one drop. When you use this hot sauce, you need to use it sparingly. That's why you'll only find it in one ounce bottles. This article provides you with an overview of The Source Hot Sauce.

Scoville heat units

Wilbur Scoville invented the Scoville scale in 1912. He first tried to measure the heat of a chili pepper by measuring its reaction with chemicals, but that proved unsuccessful. Instead, he measured the burn on his tongue after eating a sliver of different peppers. This led to the Scoville scale that is used to calculate the heat of different chili peppers and chili sauces. Where peppers rank When you ask a person to name chili peppers, they're likely to say jalapeno, cayenne or habanero. Jalapenos are very low on the heat scale coming in at 2,500 to 8,000 heat units. Cayenne peppers are a little spicier at 30,000 to 50,000. Habaneros are hotter, still at 100,000 to 350,000. Some people have heard of the ghost chili, considered to the be the world's hottest chili at 855,000 to 1,460,000 Scoville units. Where The Source Hot Sauce ranks
The Source Hot Sauce is even hotter than a ghost chili. It measures seven millions on the Scoville scale. The hotness of this sauce makes it even hotter than a canister of law enforcement pepper spray.
