Holy Jolokia Hot Sauce(5oz./148ml): A portion of bottle sales helps to fund research and education at the Chile Pepper Institute - where spiciness is a religion. The chile heat in this sauce comes from Bhut Jolokia, a chili pepper from India tested by Dr. Paul W. Bosland (New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM) and measured at 1 million (1,000,000) Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Caution: Your taste buds may cry out..."Holy Jolokia!"
Warning: Naga Bhut Jolokia Hot Sauces contain the world's hottest chili pepper, the Naga Jolokia. This is an extremely hot non-extract hot sauce. The Naga Jolokia chile pepper is rated at 1,000,000+ Scoville Units. This sauce is listed in our "Pepper Extract" category only because of it's intense heat of over 1,000,000 Units.
The Bhut Jolokia comes from North India and it is indeed the hottest chili in the world. The people over there believe that if you eat it, you will become a ghost. Thus comes the name Bhut Jolokia where Bhut means “Ghost” in the local language.
