Trinidad Scorpion Pepper Flakes


Native to the country of Trinidad and Tobago in the Southern Caribbean, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper is one of the world's hottest peppers. On February 13, 2013, the New Mexico Chile Pepper Institute named the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper the world's hottest pepper with an average Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) rating of more than 1.2 million on the Scoville Scale.

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Scoville Scale
The Scoville Scale is a measure of the pungency (heat level) of chili peppers.

What does it feel like?
The heat level of the pepper seems somewhat mild at first but then it builds until it is unbearable and crosses 1.2 million Scoville Heat Unit threshold. Some individual fruits are known to top out at a whopping 2 million on the Scoville Scale causing intense pain and a significant endorphin rush.

Suggested Uses:
Our Trinidad Moruga Scorpion flakes are ideal for adding fiery heat to dips and salsas, pasta, nachos, pizza, wings and more!

You should always wear gloves and handle our Trinidad Moruga Scorpion flakes with extreme caution. We suggest wearing gloves, goggles, a mask, and a long sleeve shirt when handling the product. Even the smallest amount of our Trinidad Moruga Scorpion flakes on your skin will cause you extreme irritation.
