Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)
A Grade Premium Black Peppercorns
Black pepper is a commonly used spice with a pinch being added to most savoury recipes.
It was once used as currency and presented to the gods as a sacred offering, luckily this extremely popular spice is available throughout the year!
It comes from the pepper plant, which is a smooth woody vine that can grow up to 33 feet in hot and humid tropical climates.
They begin to bear small white clustered flowers after 3 to 4 years and develop into berries known as peppercorns.
Ground peppercorns produce the spice we call pepper.
Black pepper helps to improves digestion and promotes intestinal health.
Black-pepper (Piper nigrum) stimulates the taste buds in such a way that an alert is sent to the stomach to increase hydrochloric acid secretion, thereby improving digestion.
Hydrochloric acid is necessary for the digestion of proteins and other food components in the stomach.
When the body’s production of hydrochloric acid is insufficient, food may sit in the stomach for an extended period of time, leading to heartburn or indigestion, or it may pass into the intestines, where it can be used as a food source for unfriendly gut
bacteria, whose activities produce gas, irritation, and/or diarrhoea or constipation.
