Whole Black Pepper - India

price: contact company for price

Black pepper is native to south India and is extensively cultivated

there and elsewhere in tropical regions. Dried ground pepper has been

used since antiquity for both its flavour and as a traditional medicine.

Black pepper is the world' s most traded spice. It is one of the most

common spices added to cuisines around the world. The spiciness of black

pepper is due to the chemical piperine, not to be confused with the

capsaicin characteristic of chili peppers. Black pepper is ubiquitous in

the modern world as a seasoning and is often paired with salt.

Black pepper is produced from the still- green, unripe drupes of the pepper plant. The drupes are cooked briefly in hot water, both to clean them and to prepare them for drying. The heat ruptures cell walls in the pepper, speeding the work of browning enzymes during drying. The drupes are dried in the sun or by machine for several days, during which the pepper around the seed shrinks and darkens into a thin, wrinkled black layer. Once dried, the spice is called black peppercorn. On some estates, the berries are separated from the stem by hand and then sun- dried without the boiling process.

Once the peppercorns are dried, pepper spirit and oil can be extracted from the berries by crushing them. Pepper spirit is used in many medicinal and beauty products. Pepper oil is also used as an ayurvedic massage oil and used in certain beauty and herbal treatments.
