Talk:Scoville heat scale

From Cookipedia

Spent bloody ages formatting the heat scale table to include a relative guide 3/10 etc, however I cannot find enough reliable source information to produce anything more that guesswork so have removed it for now.

The data and formatting is in the table but it is commented out until it can be verified properly.

Relative guide

The figures used in the relative guide column are my figures collated from researching various chilli websites.

I have made a comparison of ratings given against sauces and chillies with a given Scoville rating and n/10 rating.

I have rated Naga Viper pepper and Bhut Jolokia chili pepper as 10++ because to my mind (a a devoted chilli user) they are almost off the scale as far as sensible culinary use of chillies.

As I say, this is my interpretation which I felt was better than none at all for the moment. I would welcome any suggestions or pointers to better data sources.
