Habanero Peppers

Habanero powder, flakes, candies, and more. 100 percent pure, no additives or fillers, and naturally gluten-free.

Habaneros range from 100,000 to 500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The higher the number of SHU, the hotter the pepper. This number indicates the number of times that chili oil from a specific pepper needed to be diluted with sugar water until they could no longer detect any heat. Wilbur Scoville invented this test over a hundred years ago.

Although the burn is intense, you won’t experience it for very long. Generally, habanero chilies are grouped among the hottest chili pepper varieties, but it’s toward the bottom of that group.
