These pepper flakes are EXTREMELY HOT! 2,000,000+SHU
The Carolina Reaper pepper was crowned the hottest pepper in the world in 2014. This pepper is a crossbreed between a Ghost pepper and a Red Habanero pepper, it has a sweet somewhat smoky flavor.
We highly recommend you use these pepper flakes in very small amounts at first, such as 1/16th of a teaspoon per cup of other ingredients. Only after you feel comfortable with the pain should you experiment with higher amounts. If too much is ingested, consume milk products that contain casein such as sour cream, milk and cheese. The casein in these products work as a detergent to wash away the capsaicin oil found in the peppers.
If the product comes in contact with skin, first wipe clean with a dry cloth, then wash with cold water. If pain persists mix one-part bleach with 10 parts water and wipe the affected area, then rinse. Do not use bleach solution on head or eye areas. If product does get in your eyes or on your face, baby shampoo works wonders to alleviate the pain. Just remember to always use a dry cloth as a first step, otherwise you will just be spreading the capsaicin to other areas with the water.
