Black pepper is native to India and is extensively cultivated there and in tropical regions. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine.
The aroma of black pepper is spicy, musky, warm, and or course peppery!
Most people associate black pepper as a spice for flavouring but therapeutically, black pepper oil is mostly used as a supplement for digestive and nervous system support and wellness.
The major producers of black pepper oil include Vietnam, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China and Thailand.
In 2014 India exported approximately 90MT of black pepper oil of which 45% went to Europe and 25% into the USA.
Global black pepper prices have seen a drastic plunge to reach multi-year rockbottom prices in September. Since then the market has witnessed a 2-3% price rise, and there seems to be little scope for further downside movement. In addition, there is also a drop in the quantities of available oil, so low cost oil supplies are also running out. We recommend covering long-term requirements before supplies run out altogether.
