Additional Info

The “invisible” pepper! Eliminates unappealing black flecks in clear broths, white chowders and sauces… even mashed potatoes. Different in flavor from black pepper, it adds unique taste and a greater piquancy to most anything from Cajun to Asian fare.

Ground white pepper is used commonly in Chinese, Thai and Portuguese cuisine, but also in salads, light-coloured sauces, and mashed potatoes as a substitute, because black pepper would visibly stand out.

White pepper is the peppercorn without the husk or shell, while black pepper is the entire peppercorn with the shell intact. White pepper has a sharp, winey, biting flavor, yet tastes subtler and less complex than black pepper. High-quality peppercorns of either type are more aromatic and have more floral, spice and fruit notes than generic ones, and experts recommend freshness for good white pepper, which turns stale and bitter faster than black.


White pepper lacks certain compounds present in the outer layer of the drupe, resulting in a different overall flavour.


Because of their difference in taste and appearance, white and black pepper are used in distinctly different dish preparations. White pepper is usually found in white sauces so that it looks more “pure,” while black pepper is more common in American kitchens. Using white pepper in light-colored dishes (sauces, mashed potatoes, fish) for aesthetic reasons is a tradition that originated in France. But, white pepper is also used in some cuisines for its specific, milder flavor. White pepper is common in Chinese cooking, Vietnamese soups, pork and many Swedish dishes.

It is likely that onions were staples in the prehistoric diet, and most researchers agree that the onion has been cultivated for 5,000 years or more. Although the place and time of the onion’s origin is unknown, historic documents describe its importance as a food and its use in art, medicine and mummification.
