PURE FOOD ESSENTIALS Organic Black Pepper Whole, apart from it’s fabulous flavour and aroma, contains the active ingredient piperine. Piperine gives pepper its heat and is known to help the body’s absorption of other phytochemicals, like curcumin from turmeric. Among the health benefits of black pepper are its antibacterial, antioxidant, and respiratory relief properties.

If you like the crunchy texture and intense flavour of chunky ground peppercorns, then you’ll want to have the best pepper and a good pepper grinder on hand. It’s not surprising that black pepper is the most widely used spice in the world. Good quality whole pepper adds depth of flavour and a spiciness to savoury foods that is hard to achieve with conventional ready-ground pepper. When pepper sits in a clear glass shaker in a café for months on end, it just isn’t worth using! If you’ve cooked with whole green peppercorns simmered in a dish, then you’re clearly a pepper lover. It’s an unusual, perky flavour, but as the green pepper dries out, shrivels and turns black, the flavours intensify. 

Health Benefits and Therapeutic Applications of Black Pepper

  • It is known for its ability to reduce memory impairment and assist cognitive function.
  • Has antibacterial properties which help to fight infections.
  • Offers respiratory relief from nasal congestion and sinusitis.
  • High in antioxidants, helping to repair and avoid damage caused by free radicals.
  • Used as a digestive aid and can help with flatulence. It stimulates the taste buds, increasing the production of hydrochloric acid, improving digestion.
  • Can help to stimulate the skin to generate pigment. 
  • Used in the treatment of peptic ulcers.
  • Used to promote weight loss. Piperine interferes with the genes responsible for fat production.
  • Used to promote urination and sweating to help rid the body of toxins.
  • Pepper oil derived from peppercorns has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as a massage oil.
  • Oil used in beauty and herbal preparations.
  • Enhances bioavailability, increasing the nutritional value of other ingredients.
  • May decrease how well the body eliminates lithium, and may negatively impact on medications which are changed by the liver.
How to Use

Who doesn’t like peppercorns freshly ground onto a dish of steaming garlic and anchovy pasta, or a sizzling steak or on sliced avocado on toast… or on perfectly poached eggs? Store dried whole peppercorns away from light in a sealed pouch, and those intense flavours will be ready to burst out when you need them

Cooking with Black Pepper

  • The spicy heat of black pepper comes from the active component piperine.
  • It is often paired with turmeric to enhance the absorption of curcumin.
  • Black pepper imparts a characteristic spiciness to food that is used to provide a depth of flavour.
  • It can be used to provide a dominant pepper flavour or as a compliment and balance to other flavours within food.
  • Pepper is susceptible to loss of flavour through evaporation. It is best stored in an airtight container for no longer than a few months.
