Buy Peppercorns (White)
Milled and blended in Hong Kong.
More closely related to Black Pepper than you would think. In fact, it's a purer form of it! White Pepper is shelled Black Pepper, and imparts a lovely mellow spice without the stronger pepper flavour commonly found in Black Pepper. Our variety comes from Vietnam / Indonesia depending on the season - both these peppers carry a wonderful fragrance that highly complements seafood, eggs, beans and vegetables alike.

Industry Knowledge: Often kept a secret, White Peppercorns are actually Black Peppercorns in a more refined state. Regency White Pepper is obtained by mechanically scraping the shell off our Premium Black Peppercorn offering, while preserving its inner flavour. White Peppercorns thus have a more subtle flavour, unlike it's bolder dark cousin. As the inner shell is removed, a stronger aroma can also be sensed. It is also used for aesthetic reasons, such as in mediterranean dips where a black powder wouldn't look as pleasing to the eye. Traders and average consumer brands often mix in the shell hulls with white peppercorns when selling to the public. These smell just like white pepper but contain almost none of pepper's essential oils which give the pepper it's flavour. By contrast, Regency's White Peppercorns are of a special grade - a much purer product than anything else on the market.

Ordered twice. A must in my homemade mustard sauce and any other sauce to give it a kick!
After requesting it grinded, I was expecting the taste is similar to pepper however it didn’t turned out to my expectation.
