For the production of white pepper, the black pepper berries are picked almost ripe and are left to macerate in water to cause the detachment of the outer shell. The dried grains are subsequently dried and at the end of processing they are smaller than those of black pepper and with a much more delicate flavor.
White pepper, similar to black pepper is an excellent digestive, but should be consumed in moderation, to avoid irritation of the mucous membranes.
Piperine (active ingredient in pepper) is also famous for the particularity of significantly improving the assimilation of curcumin, the beneficial active ingredient in turmeric. For this reason, when taking turmeric, it is always recommended to add a pinch of black pepper.
Despite having an intense aroma, white pepper has a sweeter and more delicate taste than black pepper.
White pepper is perfectly suited to all dishes with a delicate flavor such as those based on fish or white meat. It is perfect for flavoring sauces (especially if based on cream or cheese), boiled potatoes and pickles.
Due to its sweet and delicate aroma, it also lends itself well to original combinations, for example with fruit to create a fresh strawberry dessert or with tofu. Due to its light color, this pepper is generally more suitable for flavoring sauces and white mayonnaise in order not to obtain the unsightly dotted appearance that black pepper would create because you know, even the eye wants its part in the kitchen! White pepper is a big hit in Chinese cuisine as its less pungent aroma than black pepper blends better with sweet and sour flavors. The berries of white pepper together with those of black pepper are coarsely ground and blended to obtain a mixture widely used in French cuisine called mignonette.
Piperine is an irritant to mucous membranes, which is why it is best not to overdo it. In case of gastritis, reflux and gastric ulcers it is much better to avoid white pepper, or to consume it only sporadically. Ditto for those suffering from irritable bowel and inflamed hemorrhoids.
