“The spicy or “hot” taste of pepper when sprinkled on food is well known. The perception of heat is stronger when fresh pepper is used. This heat is in fact a manifestation of the biological activity of some of the active compounds found in pepper, the most notable of these being piperine.
Black pepper is considered the “King of Spices” throughout the world due to its pungent principle piperine.
