The Scoville Scale is a way to rate the amount of capsaicin in peppers. It was developed by Wilbur Scoville in 1912. He soaked peppers in alcohol to extract the capsaicin. Then he added pre-sweetened water to dilute the extract so it was barely able to be tasted by the tongue. The amount of water it took to dilute the extract became Scoville Units.
