White pepper comes from the same plant as black pepper – piper nigrum. Though these spices come from the same plant, they have distinct differences in taste, color, and aroma. While black pepper is picked before the dried fruit of the pepper plant has ripened, white pepper comes from fully matured pepper berries. They’re usually soaked in water for some time leading to fermentation, and then their skins are removed. This process helps remove some of the pepper’s hot piperine compound and any volatile oils that give black pepper its heat and aroma. The taste and heat of white pepper will depend on the process in which it was harvested and prepared. White pepper is commonly used in Asian dishes and has a wide variety of benefits and uses.
- Uses: White pepper can be added to almost any savory dish for more flavor. It’s commonly used to add flavor to soups and stews, marinades for meat and poultry, and to spice up stir fries and side dishes.
- Benefits: This spice acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and supports healthy digestion. White pepper is also low in calories and can be used in place of salt to help lower your sodium intake.
