hot sauces on scoville scale

Who is Scoville

 

Wilbur Lincoln Scoville is a pharmacologist from the last century. In 1912 he developed a system to measure the strength of peppers named Scoville scale. It's used to measure the amount of capsaicin contained in each variety of pepper and measure its force.

 

Principle of Scoville Scale: 

 

The principle of the Scoville scale is to prepare a solution of fresh peppers puree and to mix it with sweet water. The solutions are tasted by 5 people and as a long as burning sensation persists the dilution is continued. For example, cayenne must be diluted 30 to 50,000 times to no longer feel the burning sensation according to the Scoville scale.
