Peppercorns have been used for seasoning dishes in the Western diet for thousands of years. This kitchen staple can be used to season any dish to perfection. Pepper can be used to enhance the bioavailability of other foods. For example adding to dishes containing turmeric will enhance the absorption, boosting its nutritional properties. Pepper also contains lots of antioxidants.
The uniqueness of ground black pepper is that it contains the alkaloid piperine, which has a lot of benefits for human body:
