Buy Jolokia Hot Sauce online from igourmet.com! Jolokia Hot Sauce is made from the Bhut Jolokia chile pepper, recently edged out as the world's hottest pepper, but still mighty fierce. This pepper has many aliases, including Bhut Jolokia, Ghost Pepper, Naga Jolokia, and Bhot Jolokia. The Bhut Jolokia chile pepper is native to northeastern India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, but grows well in new cultivations in New Mexico as well. The Bhut Jolokia has dented and very thin skin that is easy to tear and is red, orange or yellow in color. Interestingly, climate has a noticeable effect on the heat of the Bhut Jolokia. It has been documented that Bhut Jolokias grown in regions of lower humidity and rainfall can have up to 50% less heat when measured by the Scoville heat index. In Indian culture, the Bhut Jolokia is also used as a homeopathic remedy for stomach pain and is sometimes used for relief from heat exposure, since ingesting the Bhut Jolokia creates intense sweating which lowers body temperatures.
The Guinness Book of World Records certified that the Bhut Jolokia, commonly referred to as the Ghost Pepper and the source chile pepper for Jolokia Hot Sauce, was the hottest pepper in the world between 2007 and 2010. The Bhut Jolokia has measured over 1,000,000 units on the Scoville scale. The Scoville scale measures of the heat of a chile pepper based on the amount of capsaicin present. Capsaicin is the chemical in chile peppers responsible for its heat. In comparison, Tabasco sauce only measures between 3,500 and 5,000 Scoville units, the Habanero pepper measures 300,000 units, while pure capsaicin measures 16,000,000 units.
Scientists have recently succeesded at cultivating the hard-to-grow Bhut Jolokia pepper in America, making Jolokia Hot Sauce supplies more abundant. Don't be fooled by its name, as the Bhut Jolokia and the Ghost Pepper are one in the same. Our Jolokia/Ghost Pepper Hot Sauces combine extreme heat with superb flavor. CaJohn's Holy Jolokia Hot Sauce has a fruity and somewhat smoky flavor that comes from both the fresh puree and powder of the Jolokia chile pepper. Slightly thicker than the Holy Jolokia Hot Sauce, CaJohn's Jolokia 10 Hot Sauce combines some of the hottest sauces in the world: the Fatalii, Red Savina Habanero, Orange Habanero and the rare Bhut Jolokia to create a Hot Sauce worthy of a fiery 10 on their heat scale from 1-10. Fat Cat's "Cat in Heat" Sauce really heats it up as well!
