We at Hot Sauce Mall rate our products on a Heat Level Scale of 1 to 10++++. While we realize heat is subject to an individual's taste and tolerance, we try to give you an accurate basis to go by. After all one person's level 6 may be another person's level 8!

A heat rating of 9 is the highest we rate a hot sauce that is hot from the chiles only. Once pepper extract, or capsaicin is added, we rate the sauces 10 or above.
