Scoville

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the pungency (spicy heat) of chili peppers or other spicy foods, as reported in Scoville Heat Units (SHU), a function of capsaicin concentration. The scale is named after its creator, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. His method, devised in 1912, is known as the Scoville organoleptic test.
