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!
