Indian military to weaponize world's hottest chili (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100323/ap_on_re_as/as_india_chili_grenades)

GAUHATI, India The Indian military has a new weapon against terrorism: the world's hottest chili.

After conducting tests, the military has decided to use the thumb-sized "bhut jolokia," or "ghost chili," to make tear gas-like hand grenades to immobilize suspects, defense officials said Tuesday.

The bhut jolokia was accepted by Guinness World Records in 2007 as the world's spiciest chili. It is grown and eaten in India's northeast for its taste, as a cure for stomach troubles and a way to fight the crippling summer heat.

After conducting tests, the Indian military has decided to use the thumb-sized world's hottest chili to make tear gas-like hand grenades to immobilize suspects, defense officials said Tuesday, March 23, 2010.

It has more than 1,000,000 Scoville units, the scientific measurement of a chili's spiciness. Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, while jalapeno peppers measure anywhere from 2,500 to 8,000.

"The chili grenade has been found fit for use after trials in Indian defense laboratories, a fact confirmed by scientists at the Defense Research and Development Organization," Col. R. Kalia, a defense spokesman in the northeastern state of Assam, told The Associated Press.

"This is definitely going to be an effective nontoxic weapon because its pungent smell can choke terrorists and force them out of their hide-outs," R. B. Srivastava, the director of the Life Sciences Department at the New Delhi headquarters of the DRDO said.

Srivastava, who led a defense research laboratory in Assam, said trials are also on to produce bhut jolokia-based aerosol sprays to be used by women against attackers and for the police to control and disperse mobs.

I bought some black chili oil a few years back in Nawlins. This stuff ate the frigging cap of the bottle. Put a drop on a toothpick and i thought the world was ending.

Got some other stuff called (I kid you not) "The Hottest ****ing Sauce". Bad ass stuff. I thought my lips were going to fall off my face for a couple of hours.

Just How HOT Are My Chiles?


Professor
Wilber L. Scoville In 1912 a chemists by the name of Wilbur Scoville, working for the Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company, developed a method to measure the heat level of chile peppers. The test is named after him, the "Scoville Organoleptic Test". It is a subjective dilution-taste procedure. In the original test, Wilbur blended pure ground Chiles with sugar-water and a panel of "testers" then sipped the solution, in increasingly diluted concentrations, until they reached the point that the liquid no longer burned their mouths. A number was then assigned to each chile pepper based on how much it needed to be diluted before they could no longer taste (feel) the heat.

"1,000,000 drops of water is rated at only 1.5 Scoville Units"

The pungency (or heat factor) of chile peppers is measured in multiples of 100 units. The sweet bell peppers at zero Scoville units to the mighty Naga Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) at over 1,000,000 Scoville units! One part of chile "heat" per 1,000,000 drops of water is rated at only 1.5 Scoville Units. The substance that makes a chile so hot is called Capsaicin (cap-say-ah-sin). Pure Capsaicin rates between 15,000,000 and 16,000,000 Scoville Units! Today a more scientific and accurate method called liquid chromatography is used to determine capsaicin levels. In honor of Dr. Wilbur the unit of measure is still named Scoville.

Below is a list of Chile peppers and their Scoville Heat Units. Due to variations in growing conditions, soil and weather, peppers tend to vary between the lower and upper levels listed, but can go beyond them.

I'm not sure what the hottest wings I've ever ate are -- there was a place called Wild Wings (not Buffalo Wild Wings) in Savannah and I said I've tasted a lot of super spicy wings before so they gave me their hottest for free. It wasn't that hot.

At Buffalo Wild Wings, I've done their Blazin' Challenge numerous times. Their rating was 200,000 to 350,000 (Scoville) which is pretty darn hot, but not that bad.

I have never tried the Sauce from that company, but the nuts were very good.
