My friend Marco has such a high tolerance index for spicy that he jokes that he uses Tabasco sauce as an aftershave. Jokes aside, you have to be very careful with the potency and capsaicin content of peppers, chili peppers or chili peppers because some are really terrifying. For example, this little chili called Dragon’s Breath is so spicy it could kill you.
It is a pepper created in Wales with the name of Dragon’s breath that has become the spiciest in the world, dethroning the previous one, known as Carolina Reaper who until now even held the recognition of the Guinness Awards.
Until the creation of this variety of chili, the Carolina reaper It was the most beast you can imagine and it was at the top of the ranking of hot peppers. Think that on the Scoville scale, the Tabasco sauce is at 2,500 units of capsaicin and the Carolina Reaper is at 1.57 million.
Well this new variety called Dragon’s breath, it’s over 2.48 million of units on the Scoville scale, it’s a really dangerous thing. However, although it is a true unconsciousness, out there you can find videos of people who have made the test of biting the Carolina Reaper and have had real problems.
These types of products are not food And you can’t imagine the danger that trying one of these peppers can have, no matter how small. They can actually cause a anaphylactic shock or even death from suffocation if eaten. In any case, we will not be surprised to soon find some fool doing the test on You Tube with the new Dragon’s Breath.
So … if they are not eaten, why have these chili peppers been produced?
The reason these scale-jumping fire peppers were developed of Wilbur Scoville in pieces since with that power it would be out of all the rankings, it is for other uses, of a medical nature.
They are so strong that even rubbed into the skin, cause you to drowsy, which is why it is being used as an analgesic and even as an anesthetic product. So far no one has swallowed it but a person who bit him lightly had his mouth asleep for two days.
If you like spicy, here you have a good compilation of spicy recipes but never try this type of chili without knowing them. As harmless as they may seem, you have to be careful because This little chili is so hot it could kill you.
