Black pepper

Black pepper is a spice that gained its popularity in ancient times. Spice is obtained from unripe fruits of Indian liana in the territory formerly known as Malabar. That is why today one of the best varieties is considered to be the Malabar pepper. The product was in demand in Ancient Greece, Rome, as well as in Russia. Today the plantations of different plant varieties can be found in the coastal regions of America, Asia and Africa.

Ready-to-eat spice has the appearance of a dark gray powder, and the taste of the product is well-known by spicy, burning notes, which is due to the content of special substance — piperine. Also, the spice has a recognizable smell given off by essential oil. The fragrance is especially strong during the milling process, but it vanishes over time, therefore it is not recommended to store the finished product for a long time.
