About This Product

Organic Moruga Scorpion Chili Powder 600K H.U.

Flavor Profile and Uses

The Moruga Scorpion is one of the world's hottest chili peppers with record heat that can get up to 1 million H.U. The key to this chili pepper is the whole culinary experience. Used in moderation, you will get the intense, extremely fiery-hot capsaicin taste and the unique sweet-hot tender fruity and floral flavor, giving it a unique sweet-hot combination.

How is the heat determined for Cayenne & Chili Peppers?

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat of the cayenne and chili peppers, as reported in Scoville heat units (S.H.U. or H.U.), due to the capsaicin concentration. The substances that give the peppers their intensity when ingested are capsaicin and the related compounds known as capsaicinoids. The greater amount of these compounds there are in the chili, the hotter it is.
