Pepper is the fruit of the black pepper plant from the Piperaceae family and is used as both, spice and a medicine. The chemical piperine, present in black pepper, causes the spiciness. Pepper has two varieties named ‘white pepper’ and ‘black pepper’. Black pepper is produced by sun drying ripe peppercorns. White pepper is produced by the removal of the outer covering membrane. This can be done before or after the process of drying in order to obtain the inner seed.
Ceylon pepper is important in the world spice market due to its high piperine content, strong aroma and rich flavor. Pepper is known to offer a number of health benefits while providing an excellent depth of flavor to any dish. The use of black pepper in the diet helps promote weight loss, improve digestion, relieve cold and cough, boost metabolism, and treat skin problems. It also reduces the risk of cancer, and heart and liver ailments.
