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.
The market has not yet responded to the paucity of raw material for black pepper oil. The supply of raw black pepper is under a bit of strain. Though the prices are still holding out, it will not be long before prices escalate if the situation does not improve.
