About Our Scotch Bonnet Biltong
WARNING – SERIOUSLY HOT BILTONG! DO NOT LEAVE THIS AROUND FOR CHILDREN OR PETS TO CONSUME!
The heat intensity of chilli peppers is measured universally in Scoville Heat Units (SHU), and our Scotch Bonnet biltong averages 300,000 SHU’s. (If you like insanely hot biltong, then we’d direct you to our Reaper biltong which averages 1.6 million SHU’s).
For further perspective, our Peri-Peri biltong manages a mere 100,000 SHU’s, and our Cheeky Chilli biltong a positive cool 35,000 SHU’s.
Also known as Caribbean Red Peppers, we use a variety that is found in both the Caribbean and West Africa. These chilli peppers are specially imported, adding additional costs to this product’s production, which is indicative of the price we have to charge (but it’s oh-so worth it!)
We currently sell this in 5 x 100g bags only.
