New Hot Sauce Uses Spider Venom
If you were ever curious about what spider venom tastes like, now's your chance. Scientists say they've found a way to safely extract the venom and bottle it into hot sauce.
“The pain signal I thought people would be really familiar with," scientist Steve Trim told SWNS. "And then I brought into the story that spiders such as the Trinidad chevron, they actually mimic the action of chili [peppers] in their venom.”
Trim invented Steve's Scientific Sauce, believed to be the first of its kind. The British scientist says it comes as close to actually tasting venom as possible without being harmful.
Trim and his team of scientists were able to accomplish this by extracting a component of spider venom they say is safe for human consumption.
