Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a perennial woody climbing vine belonging to the family Piperaceae.
Famous for its use as a ‘commodity currency’ in the ancient period and as a catalyst to international spice trade, it is often referred to as ‘black gold’. It is also called the ‘King of Spices’, as its usage round the world is more than any of the spices at present.
It is used as flavour ingredient in most major food products including sauces, gravies, processed meats, poultry, snack foods etc. except baked goods.
