I have been buying spices and herbs from this brand for a very long time. I find their ingredients to be of very high quality, flavourful, very tasty and the bulk price is good . This black pepper is one of my favorites , i think it's one of the best on the market is authentic and you can feel the heat in food
Another fine bulk bag product from Starwest Botanicals! Its a good amount so if you don’t cook very often for a big family you may find this flavorful organic black pepper corn will last you for a few years! It’s very fragrant, especially when just ground up. I love to use it both in cooking my food as well as my supplements (with turmeric powder)
I bought this because I read that eating turmeric with black pepper boost the absorption of curcumin. I also use this for daily cooking. When ground freshly, it has a more pungent taste that can enhance the taste of any dish. This, when combined with sea salt, also makes boring potatoes taste like French fries. Try it and you'll know what I am talking about.
Learned that piperine (in pepper) is synergistic with other nutrients. More and more I'm looking for foods that are free of added chemicals (aka "organic"). Pepper seems rather pricey these days, so buying it in bulk, as whole peppercorns, seems the most economical option. Can use them whole in soups/stews, or grind them.
