    The powdered variety probably has additional additives that cool it off a bit-so to speak.

    Theoretically, they should be about the same depending on if there's anything else in the powder

    Well I had some corn chips that they claimed were very hot they had ghost pepper powder on them. I ate a few of them and I managed to eat them but then about an hour later my stomach started jumping around and pretty soon I was on the toilet. Now I once tasted ghost pepper concentrate on a toothpick. I don't ever want to do it again fresh ghost pepper it's so hot that it's not a very pleasant experience. Powder is about 25% as hot as fresh juice and oil
