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 prices for black pepper have reached their multi-year nadir about a month ago. With a 2 to 3% price hike across all black pepper sources, there is limited scope for further downside movement. Our recommendation is to assess and cover long term requirements. There is also a dip in the quantity of oil available; so the period of easily available low cost oil is also drawing to a close.
