What is the hottest product in the world?
Question: What is the hottest product or food in the world?
Answer: The spicy substance in chili is called Capsaicin and is measured in Scoville Units (Info on the measuring process). The red Tabasco sauce from McIlhenny has, for example, 2,500 Scoville Units, Habanero Chilies 200,000 SHU, Bhut Jolokia Chilies up to 1 million units. The table ends with 16 million Scoville Units, which corresponds to pure Capsaicin.
Pure Capsaicin, a white crystalline powder, is therefore the hottest product in the world.
The hottest chili pepper in the world is since 2013 the Carolina Reaper chili (see picture above). More about the Carolina Reaper here.
