Non Chilli

This group of products offer a lively set of spice flavours but do not have the pungency of chilli – a great way to introduce young palates to the wonderful array of flavours that spices provide.

The Hells Breath Relish is the best – use it on your curry, use it with your roast, can use it as a savoury dip and even on your toast!

Chili Facts

 

In 1912 Wilbur Scoville, a US pharmacist worked up a method to give a heat rating to different varieties of chillies. It is known as the Scoville scale and still used today. The Scoville Scale of heat units is determined by measuring the amount of sweetened water required to dilute the capsaicin (the hot component of a chilli) until it is undetectable. That is, the more sweetened water required, the higher the heat rating. Now this sounds like science until the human factor is acknowledged. A panel of 5 tasters make the judgement at what point the chilli heat becomes undetectable and we all know that people have a very different sensitivity to chilli!
