CAROLINA REAPER POWDER
Originally named HP22B this red and gnarly pepper packs a hell of a punch.The Carolina Reaper can be found around the Rock Hill area of South Carolina in the United States.It was bred by "Smokin" Ed Currie, owner of the PuckerButt Pepper Company based in Fort Mill.
They produced the pungent pepper by interbreeding a Bhut jolokia and a red habanero, dubbing it "Reaper" owing to its scythe like tail.The Carolina Reaper is registered by Guinness World Records as having an average heat level of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).That was just the average for the batch but the spiciest individual pepper clocked up a whopping 2.2million SHU.
A regular habanero chilli clocks in somewhere between 100,000 - 350,000 SHU with the humble jalapeno far lower still between 3,500 to 8,000 SHU.The Carolina Reaper was crowned the hottest chilli in the world by Guinness World Records in 2013 when it defeated the Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T".It still remains atop Guinness' list but some others have claimed to be even spicier.In May last year Mike Smith from St Asaph, North Wales, claimed to have topped it with the Dragon's Breath pepper with a reported 2.4 million SHUs but has yet to have that verified by the record keepers.
A pepper purported to be even hotter still was claimed by the Reaper's creator, Ed Currie, in September 2017.
Dubbed "Pepper X" Ed claimed it was reportedly more than 3.1 million SHUs but again it has yet to be verified by Guinness.

TASTE AND AROMA
Carolina Reaper Chile Powder is made from the same top-quality chiles we sell whole and retails. A Carolina Reaper Chile was awarded the Guinness World Record for the Hottest Chile in 2013, so you know this single-variety chile powder is hot.
Best used when added to a recipe where its heat can be tempered with other flavors,Use sparingly to add sweet, bright heat to foods Stir into salsa or enchilada sauce for an extra spicy kick Substitute for some of the chile flakes in seasonings and rubs for grilled meat.
After a man who ate the world's hottest chili pepper was tested for brain damage, you might be forgiven for thinking it's best to avoid consuming the Carolina Reaper. But chili growers have defended the fruit, and stressed it is safe to eat—although probably not whole.
Capsaicin is linked with several health benefits, as well as adverse effects. On one hand, it may help promote weight loss and relieve pain, if consumed regularly. On the other hand, it causes a burning sensation, which is unpleasant for many people, especially those who are not used to eating chili peppers.
