Ground black pepper for daily use in your kitchen

Ground black pepper suits almost every savoury meal. It is therefore the most widely used spice in the world. Although it is often combined with (sea) salt, it also gives a powerful flavour to your dishes. The substance piperine is responsible for the sharpness of the ground black pepper. It is sharper and more aromatic than the white variety, which is often used because of its less spicy taste and the fact that it fits better in light coloured dishes and sauces. You can order ground black pepper online at Natural Spices in a package of 500 grams, 1.5 kilos, 5 kilos or 25 kilos. The spice has a long shelf life, provided you keep it cool, dry and dark.

Where does ground black pepper come from?

Ground black pepper comes from the pepper plant, which grows in tropical areas. It is a plant from the piperaceae family. The green and white peppercorns also come from the same plant. The colour of the peppercorns is determined by the moment of harvesting. Ground black pepper actually comes from the berry of this tropical plant. It is picked at the moment it turns from green to red during its ripening process and is then dried naturally. This gives the spice its brown to black colour. It is then ground into powder. The ground black pepper that you can buy online here comes from Vietnam.

How do you use ground black pepper?

Ground black pepper can be used in almost any savoury dish. Although it has a strong flavour of its own, it is a flavour that can be combined with many other herbs, spices and foodstuffs. To ensure that it does not lose its flavour, add it at the end of the preparation process. It is less well known that ground black pepper can also be used in sweet dishes. In most cases these are biscuits. You use the black pepper powder when you make your own biscuit and speculaas spices. For example, for baking delicious 'pepper nuts'. It is also an indispensable ingredient in gingerbread. Ground black pepper in combination with balsamic brings out the sweetness of strawberries.

Why is ground black pepper so healthy

Since ground black pepper is such a common spice in our kitchens, you often don't realise that it actually has many health benefits. For example, it is a source of vitamin C and vitamin K and contains a large portion of potassium and iron. The piperine in the ground black pepper stimulates digestion. In addition, the use of ground black pepper has been shown to facilitate the absorption of other nutrients in your body. For this reason it is often recommended to add it to dishes with turmeric. In this way you strengthen the naturally medicinal properties of that spice.
