Black pepper

The black peppercorn is nothing more than a pepper fruit that was half its ripening time; and that has been dried in the sun, or in the oven; from a tropical plant called piper nigrum.

This plant requires special weather conditions with a temperature variation of 25 to 30ºC and a humidity of more than 60%; Hence, it mainly grows in tropical areas, with Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Ecuador, Cambodia and Sri Lanka being the largest producers of this spice.

This spice stands out above all for having a high amount of potassium, fiber, calcium, iron, sodium, phosphorus and zinc; it also contains proteins and various vitamins (A, B, C and D). All these elements benefit health by helping digestion, keeping the skin in good condition, acting as an antibacterial to prevent and fight infections, colds, flu or nasal congestion; promote arterial health and help reduce salt intake.
