Production & Sourcing
Preparation: High-quality whole black peppercorns are selected for the process. These are the small, dried berries from the Piper nigrum plant.
Steaming: The selected black peppercorns are exposed to controlled steam in a controlled environment. The steam softens the outer layer of the peppercorns and potentially helps to temper the intense spiciness associated with raw black pepper.
Cooling and Drying: After the steaming process, the peppercorns are cooled down and allowed to dry. This step ensures that the peppercorns retain the new flavor profile achieved through steaming.
Hulling: The outer husk of the peppercorns is removed, revealing the inner black seed.

Steam-treated whole black pepper retains the characteristic pungent and slightly spicy flavor of traditional black pepper. The steam treatment process can help preserve the flavor compounds within the peppercorns while potentially reducing some of the harshness associated with raw black pepper.
The texture of steam-treated whole black pepper is similar to that of untreated black peppercorns. They are firm and have a slightly rough surface due to their natural husk. The steaming process may soften the outer layer slightly, making it more palatable.
Steam-treated whole black pepper generally maintains its dark black color, just like regular black peppercorns. The color is a key visual cue that indicates its type and freshness.
The nutritional value of steam-treated whole black pepper remains largely consistent with regular black peppercorns. It contains essential oils, antioxidants, and potentially beneficial compounds like piperine. While it’s not consumed in large quantities, its nutritional contributions can include mild antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Steam-treated whole black pepper might have slightly higher moisture content compared to untreated peppercorns due to the steaming process. This could potentially affect its binding properties when used in certain applications like rubs or marinades.
The steaming process used on whole black pepper may help preserve the aromatic compounds within the peppercorns. As a result, steam-treated black pepper should still have the characteristic warm, spicy, and slightly woody aroma associated with traditional black pepper.
Steam-treated whole black pepper can offer a similar balance and contrast to dishes as untreated black pepper. It adds a layer of complexity to foods by providing a mild spiciness that can contrast with other flavors, helping to enhance the overall taste.
The use of steam-treated whole black pepper is not tied to a specific cultural or regional influence. Instead, it’s a processing method that can be applied to black pepper from various origins and used in a global context.
As with regular black pepper, steam-treated whole black pepper is generally safe for consumption for most people. However, individuals with specific dietary considerations or allergies should still exercise caution. The steam treatment process is primarily aimed at enhancing the flavor and reducing the “bite” of raw black pepper, which could make it more appealing to individuals with sensitivity to spiciness.
Uses in manufacturing
Steam-treated whole black pepper is used in food manufacturing much like untreated black peppercorns, with the added benefit of potentially having a milder flavor. Here are some ways steam-treated whole black pepper can be utilized in food manufacturing:
team-treated whole black pepper can be included in seasoning blends and spice mixes for various applications. These blends are used to flavor snacks, processed meats, sauces, and more, offering a balanced pepper flavor without overwhelming spiciness.
Just like regular black peppercorns, steam-treated whole black pepper can be added to processed meats like sausages, deli meats, and cured meats. It contributes flavor while potentially providing a less intense spiciness.
Steam-treated whole black pepper is suitable for marinades and dry rubs used to season meats before cooking. It can help enhance the flavor of the meat without adding excessive spiciness.
Many sauces, condiments, and dressings incorporate black pepper for flavor. Steam-treated whole black pepper can offer a more subtle spiciness, making it suitable for products with a milder taste profile.
Snack manufacturers can use steam-treated whole black pepper to season items like chips, popcorn, and crackers. The milder flavor can make these snacks more accessible to a broader range of consumers.
In certain baked goods with a savory or mildly spicy profile, steam-treated whole black pepper can provide flavor without overwhelming the other ingredients.
Prepared meals can benefit from the addition of steam-treated whole black pepper, providing a gentle pepper flavor that complements various dishes.
Steam-treated whole black pepper can be added to processed soups, stews, and sauces to contribute flavor and a touch of warmth.
The milder flavor of steam-treated whole black pepper can be utilized in pickling brines or fermentation processes to add depth to the final product.
Steam-treated whole black pepper can serve as a flavor enhancer in a wide range of packaged and processed foods, helping to improve overall taste.
Just like untreated black peppercorns, steam-treated whole black pepper is packaged and sealed to maintain its freshness, flavor, and aroma.
Food manufacturers can create custom spice blends that include steam-treated whole black pepper, tailoring the level of spiciness to match the desired product profile.
