Ghost peppers also known as Bhut Jolokia are rated in the Scoville Heat Unit ( SCU) as the third hottest peppers in the world. They are rated with 1,000,000 SCU. The ones hotter are US Grade Peeper Spray with 2,000,000-5,300,000 and the very hottest are Pure Capsaican with heated 15,000,000 SCU...
Am excited about using the other spices for more Asian fusion and other cooking s... Cannt wait...

The Scoville scale may be extrapolated to express the pungency of substances that are even hotter than pure capsaicin. One such substance is resiniferatoxin, an alkaloid present in the sap of some species of euphorbia plants (spurges). Since it is 1000 times as hot as capsaicin, it would have a Scoville scale rating of 16 billion.
16 Billion, holy crap!!!!
