Description

Product: Fairtrade Organic White Peppercorns

Latin Name: Piper nigrum

Plant Family: Piperaceae

Other Names: White Pepper, Blanc Poivre, Pimienta Blanca, Weißer Pfeffer, Hu Jiao Mian, Saphed Mirch & Beyaz Biber.

Description: Pepper comes from a perennial, woody, climbing vine native to south-western India but is now cultivated in Africa, Brazil, China, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. It grows to a height of 2-5 metres and uses surrounding trees and structures to support it. The leaves are entire, alternate, 5-10cm in length and cordately ovate in shape, dark glossy-green in colour. The flowers are small, yellowy-white to greenish-white in colour and present in clusters of long drooping spikes 4-8cm in length in the leaf nodes. As the pepper berries develop, the spikes lengthen to between 7-15cm.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that 1 teaspoon of white peppercorns contains 7 calories? Although eating 1 teaspoon of this pungent spice all to yourself, would take some doing! Peppercorns contain capsaicin, a chemical that has been used in topical creams as an analgesic. White Pepper also contains vitamin C and manganese and iron.

Ingredients: Dried unripe berries of Piper nigrum.

Allergy Advice: White Pepper contains a naturally occurring source of salicylates and is best avoided by people eating a salicylate free diet.
