Not only does Cholula Hot Sauce taste great, but it is believed that chilli peppers have many health benefits, particularly for people with pulmonary and respiratory problems.
Hot peppers are great for asthmatics as they are rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C and the capsaicin found in hot peppers helps lungs function more effectively. It also controls sinus and nasal problems and reduces the intensity of headaches.
The capsaicin found in Cholula Hot Sauce increases metabolic rates, making it easier to burn calories.
The heat of the hot sauce is based on the Scoville Scale, which is used to measure the heat contained in peppers. Pure Capsaicin ranks at approximately 15,000,000, whilst Piquin and Arbol ranges between 40,000 to 60,000 Scoville units. With the addition of exotic spices and other ingredients.
Cholula Hot Sauce delivers a palatable 1,000 Scoville units, creating a sensational flavour for your tastebuds to enjoy.
