Bajan Tyga is a uniquely Canadian twist to a traditional Barbadian (Bajan) styled mango & Scotch bonnet-based sauce.
The main pepper used is the Scotch bonnet or ‘bonney pepper’ derived from the Capsicum Chinese chili plant. Originating in Jamaica, it is most common in Caribbean foods and has what is described as a fruity taste compared to its cousin the Habanero.
Scotch Bonnets (sometimes referred to as West Indian Habaneros) are HOT, measuring up to 445,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Not only do Scotch Bonnets make our food taste good, but phytochemicals in these peppers (capsaicin and flavonoids) are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits.
