Black pepper whole, the most popular spice in the world

Black pepper whole can be used in almost all savoury meals. It is therefore the most widely used spice in the world. It adds a powerful and spicy flavour to your dishes. The substance piperine is responsible for this. Black pepper whole is sharper and more aromatic than the white variety, which is often used because of its light spicy taste and the fact that it fits better in light-coloured dishes and sauces. Black pepper peppercorns can be ordered online at Natural Spices in a package of 540 grams, 1.5 kilos or 25 kilos. The spice has a long shelf life, provided you keep it cool, dry and dark.

How does black pepper grow?

Black peppercorns come from the tropical pepper plant, a plant from the piperaceae family. The green and white peppercorns come from the same plant. The colour of the peppercorns is determined by the moment of harvesting. Black pepper whole is actually the berry of this tropical plant. At the moment the berry turns from green to red during its ripening process, it is picked and dried in the sun for 3 to 4 days. This gives the spice its dark colour.

Why do you use black pepper whole?

Black pepper is very suitable for many different dishes. Although the peppercorns have a strong flavour, they combine well with most other herbs and spices. Of course, black pepper is also the basis for the well-known pepper sauce. You add pepper at the end of the preparation process, because otherwise you run the risk of the pepper aroma evaporating. In most cases, you remove the peppercorns from the dish before serving.

The most commonly used spice is also healthy

Since black pepper whole 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 also contains a large portion of potassium and iron. The piperine in the pepper stimulates digestion too. In addition, the use of this spice has been shown to facilitate the absorption of other nutrients in your body. For this reason it is often recommended to add black pepper whole to dishes with turmeric. In this way you strengthen the naturally medicinal properties of that spice.
