Black Pepper – Aptly called as the ‘King of Spices’ – as it is the world’s most traded spice. In medieval times the store of pepper was related to a man’s wealth and it was used as currency for trading. Black pepper has digestive benefits that help remove toxins from the body and increase metabolism.
White Pepper – White pepper is the fruit of the pepper plant, just that the processing is different than black variety. It is less complex than black pepper but is hotter in flavor. White pepper is used mainly in place of black pepper where the presence of black flecks would spoil the look of a sauce.
