Organic Black Pepper Powder has been used by human for over 4,000 years. It is native to India and is known as the "King of Spices".

Since ancient times, black pepper is one of the most widely traded spices in the world.

Health benefits of black pepper include relief from respiratory disorders, cough, constipation, digestion, anaemia, dental care and heart disease. It is a source of magnesium, iron, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin K and dietary fibre.
