Hot sauces come in a variety of heat levels, depending on the type of pepper used, how much/many peppers were used, the percentage of how much pepper is in the hot sauce in relation to the other ingredients, and also whether pure pepper extract was used. Many chiliheads use the heat of a Jalapeno pepper as a unit of measure when trying to determine a sauce's heat. For example, Cholula Hot Sauce is estimated to deliver only 72% of the heat of a natural Jalapeno pepper, putting it in the "Medium" category. However, Blair's Original Death Hot Sauce, is about 6 times hotter than a Jalapeno pepper, so it is found in to "Hot" category. Hot sauces that contain pure pepper extract, such as CaJohn's Magma, can be 200 times hotter than a Jalapeno pepper--or more--and these are the kinds of hot sauces you will find in our "Hottest" category.So maybe you love the flavor and kick of a medium hot sauce but now you're ready to take it up a notch. Or maybe you're looking for an intense pepper extract to add to your chili to help it skyrocket to the top of the Scoville scale. Maybe you're not even a fan of hot sauce yourself but instead are searching for the perfect gift for that special chilihead in your life.
