Pepper’s heat is measured by its Scoville Heat Units. It starts at 0 and goes all the way up to 2,200,000 units.
What is the Scoville Scale and Where did it Come From?
Wilbur Lincoln Scoville was an American pharmacist best known for creating the “Scoville Organoleptic Test”.
Scoville Units that measures the pungency (spiciness or heat) in spicy food has been standardized. The shorter version is SHU which you will see in most grocery stores.
He created the method in 1912 while working at the Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company. At the age of 47, is when he created the “Scoville Organoleptic Test” to measure the heat intensity of chili peppers.
The test measured how much spicy substance would have to be diluted in sugar water before its pungency was no longer noticeable. Later it was streamlined to machines to directly measure the amounts of capsaicinoids, the chemicals responsible for the sensation of heat.
Here is a list of Peppers and their Scoville Heat Units
Hot Peppers have health benefits to them which come from the capsaicin (pronounced (kap-say-sin)). Capsaicin that’s found in peppers like cayenne’s, jalapenos, and habaneros, just to name a few.
Some of the reported health benefits are weight loss, help lower cholesterol, suppress appetite, increase metabolism, and fight inflammation.
Capsaicin found in peppers can affect your metabolism by raising your body temperature, which uses up more energy.
When your body uses more energy it increases blood flow and increases your metabolism, which helps you lose weight.
Peppers also are a great source of Vitamin C and A and high in Potassium. A little more than 50 percent of Americans enjoy spicy foods. Are you one of those Americans?
