ESPELETTE: A WONDERFUL PIER
THE METHOD OF OBTAINING THE SCOVILLE SCALE
The Scoville scale was invented by the American pharmacologist of the same name: Wilbur Scoville in 1912. It makes it possible to classify the peppers in order of spiciness. As everyone has already tested, the consumption of peppers stimulates blood circulation and sweating, caused by capsaicin, active compound of chilli.
The method for obtaining the Scoville scale is to measure the level of capsaicin in the chilli. The following ranking ranges from 0 (like pepper) to 10 (the strongest, chili habanero). The Espelette pepper gets the score of 4 (Hot), in comparison for a Cayenne pepper that is in category 6 (Ardent). The Espelette pepper is therefore reasonably prickly but beyond the raised side, it releases in its mouth its incomparable perfume.
