Industry Knowledge: Pepper, called the King of Spices, has had a profound influence on both Eastern and Western cooking and economies. Whilst many countries owe their prosperity to this spice, the finest quality comes from India. Due to a combination of environmental influences, Indian Black Peppercorns are naturally larger, better shaped, more aromatic and more densely packed with flavour. Of the different varieties available from India, Regency brings you the finest quality of Black Peppercorns, known as the Malabar variety. It comes from the Malabar coast of southwestern India. In England, for grinding they mix Peppers of different origin. Malabar for weight and taste, Sumatra for colour, and Penang for strength. For much of the last two thousands years, pepper was a luxury for the very rich, a commodity so valuable that it was even used as money. It is even said that Attila the Hun demanded among other items 3,000 lbs. of pepper in ransom for the city of Rome.
Our Black Peppercorns confirms to the highest peppercorn standards. They have a density of around 580+ grams / litre (usually 620+), meaning they pack the strongest amount of flavour available per peppercorn. Each one is also greater than 5mm in diameter.
*INDUSTRY SPECIFIC TERMINOLOGY.
Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
Perfectly ground, not to fine not too coarse. Very good flavour and again very good product quality for the price
Yummy and good quality. Grinds well and has excellent flavor
Freshly grind pepper is so much better than the supermarket bought powder in terms of flavour, fragrance and texture. I just wish that Regency Spices will bring the prices down a bit as their items are on the pricier side and sometimes I find similar quality products on iHerb at a more competitive price from other online retailers like iHerb, plus iHerb runs promotions with 20% discount codes quite often which bring the prices even lower. Don't want to detract from Regency Spices' products as so far they all tend to be very good just wish they are cheaper.
Very good quality
