What is black pepper? About the ingredient black pepper. Including 10,393 recipes with black pepper, nutrition data, and where to find it.
Dried ground pepper has been used since antiquity for both its flavor and as a medicine. It is one of the most common spices added to European cuisine and its descendants. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine. It may be found on nearly every dinner table in some parts of the world, often alongside table salt.
Pepper gets its spicy heat mostly from the piperine compound, which is found both in the outer fruit and in the seed. Refined piperine, by weight, is about one percent as hot as the capsaicin in chili peppers.
Black pepper is usually found in the spices section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
Black pepper is a member of the Spices and Herbs USDA nutritional food group.
