A man in the United States has broken the Guinness World record for eating one of the world’s hottest peppers ‘bhut jolokia’ in merely 30 seconds. Greg Foster consumed the spicy and hot chillies, mostly found in the north eastern states of India such as Nagaland, Manipur and Assam, in just 30.01 seconds with a victorious smile. He gulped one chilly after the other unflinchingly in the footage that was shared on the official handle of the Guinness World Records on instagram, as well as the website. 

Foster secured the first spot in the Guinness World Records beating other contestants in their previously achieved feat. Sharing the exhilarating moment, the Guiness World Records wrote, "Fastest time to eat 10 bhut jolokia chillis 30.01 seconds Greg Foster." The latter was presented with the certificate for winning after he accomplished an extraordinary task. This would be the second time that the American man has attempted to chow down the ghost chillies, having previously eaten them in over a minute in November 2023.

In December 2021, Foster made a record for fastest time taken in consuming three Carolina reaper chillies in just 8.72 seconds. While in 2017, he won for consuming most Carolina reaper chillies that weighed 120 grams in just one minute. "Gregory has always loved spicy food and even grows his own peppers at home. He has spent decades pushing his tolerance level for spicy foods, and he is now able to stomach the hottest peppers in the world,” the Guinness World Records said on its website.

It is to be noted that the bhut jolokia is at least twice spicier than the  Mexican red savina, and three times as strong as Cayenne and can cause the burning sensation in the mouth when consumed raw. But it is widely used in cuisines and the savoury dishes such as guacamole and curries.
