Real Salt Organic Seasonings couldn’t deliver their savory flavor without the king of spices— black pepper.
We’re big pepper fans around here! This longtime right-hand man to our beloved salt delivers a powerful, almost spicy bite that elevates food to savory heights.
Black pepper comes from peppercorns— the fruits of a perennial plant in the Piperaceae family. The fruits are quite small and are picked at various stages of ripeness, depending on the strength and heat of the pepper desired. While its origins are linked to ancient India, black pepper is used globally in thousands of cuisine types.
The taste is familiar to us all: pungent, sharp, hot, and zingy. Many refer to it as ‘The King of Spices’ due to its versatility and complexity— though we like to think of it as a team player among all the spices in our Organic Seasonings
Black pepper also contains antioxidants and has proven anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, it's been used for centuries to support brain, gut, and immune health, among other uses.
We take great care in sourcing organic spices from companies that adhere to strict USDA federal regulations for organic food-grade products, and that includes our black pepper. The black pepper we use is also GMO-free and kosher certified.
