Scoville scale

Scoville scale
A display of hot peppers with an explanation of the Scoville scale at the H-E-B Central Market in Houston, Texas The Scoville scale is the measurement of the pungency (spicy heat) of chili peppers or other spicy foods as reported in Scoville heat units (SHU),[1] a function of capsaicin concentration. The scale is named after its creator, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. Unlike methods based on high-performance liquid chromatography, the Scoville scale is an empirical measurement dependent on the capsaicin sensitivity of testers and so is not a precise or accurate method to measure capsaicinoid concentration. Scoville organoleptic test[edit] Scoville ratings[edit] Considerations[edit] Since Scoville ratings are defined per unit of dry mass, comparison of ratings between products having different water content can be misleading.

Comment j'ai pourri le web Petite expérience amusante sur l'usage du numérique en lettres Pendant ma première année au lycée, j’ai donné à mes élèves de Première une dissertation à faire à la maison. Avec les vacances scolaires les élèves avaient presque un mois pour la rédiger : c’était leur première dissertation de l’année. Plus tard, en corrigeant chez moi, je me suis aperçu que des expressions syntaxiquement obscures étaient répétées à l’identique dans plusieurs copies. En les recherchant sur Google, j’ai trouvé des corrigés sur un sujet de dissertation voisin vendus à 1,95€. Interloqué, j’ai immédiatement arrêté de corriger les copies, ne sachant plus à quoi ou à qui j’avais affaire et ayant l’impression de travailler dans le vide. Plus tard, la même année, j’ai donné sur table à une de mes classes un commentaire composé, sur un passage d’une œuvre classique. J’ai donc décidé de mener une petite expérience pédagogique l’année suivante : j'ai pourri le web ! Tendre sa toile... 1ère étape 2ème étape 3ème étape

15 of the World's Most Expensive Cheeses There's so much more to the wonderful world of cheese than your typical grocery store brick would suggest. Thousands of artisan cheeses around the world are produced via their own intricate and labor-intensive processes, which create complex and stunning flavor profiles. There are many wonderful American-made and imported fine cheeses that won't break the bank … but none of those are going to appear on this list. 1. Also known as the Prince of Gruyères, this alpine hunk is the stuff that fondue dreams are made of. 2. This won a Gold British Cheese award in 2002 and was acknowledged as the priciest British cheese out there. 3. Truly the crown of Oregon, Rogue River Blue is a smoky, creamy blue that’s been aged in pear brandy-soaked grape leaves. 4. This ooey gooey wonder won Best of Show at the 2013 American Cheese Society conference. 5. Buffalo’s milk has around twice the fat of cow’s milk, so it produces some of the creamiest cheese in the world. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

Quel est le point commun entre les préservatifs et les téléphones Android ? Il n’y a aucune plaisanterie grivoise à venir, leur point commun vient tout simplement de leur nom respectif. Aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraître, la plupart des téléphones sous Android ont le même intitulé que nombre de marques de préservatifs. Le blog Intercom s’est amusé à rechercher les similitudes entre les noms de Smartphones et ceux des préservatifs. En compilant leurs différentes trouvailles dans un tableau, ils ont simplement constaté que l’OS de Google était largement représenté. Plus sérieusement, il est difficile de trouver un nom à un produit, il se doit en premier lieu d’être percutant et disponible. En attendant, il est grand temps de jouer à un nouveau jeu : Est-ce un préservatif ou un Android ? [Gizmodo]
