Pepper (Piper nigrum) is still the most traded spice in the world.
It’s a staple in food manufacturing and in household kitchens.
Its culinary popularity is rivaled only by its sister seasoning, salt.
Pepper’s status stems from its distinctive taste, aroma and versatility.
It peps up almost any dish.
Because it combines well with other spices, it’s commonly found in blends, too - poultry seasoning, curry powders, sausage blends and even some pumpkin pie spice blends.
