Serenade at the Scoville scale
The Scoville scale is used to measure the amount of capsaicin to determine the “hotness” of the pepper. Capsaicin is a substance which stimulates receptors on the tongue that are sensitive to heat and pain. This gives a burning sensation. To prevent overheated situations, it is recommended to check the hotness on the Scoville scale!
