Sami's Product
Black Pepper Oil and Oleoresin
Piper nigrum Linn or Black peppercorns is produced through steam distillation to get the aromatic, odorous constituent of the spice i.e., the volatile oil. Whilst the pungent, non volatile principles for which the pepper is so highly esteemed as a condiment is present in its oleoresin, which is obtained by the extraction of berries with volatile solvents and concentrating to remove the solvent. The crushed black pepper generally yields 1 to 2.5 percent of volatile oil which contains mainly Terpenes, Sesquitenpenes and Oxygenated compounds, and is used for flavouring and perfumery. The oleoresin of pepper contains Alkaloids, Piperine (4-10 percent) and Chavicine, which contributes for its pungent taste.
