Crodarom African Pepper PS

Add to favourites
African Pepper is a spice growing around the Guinea Gulf with a zesty flavour reminiscent of ginger and cardamom. During the 15th century, these rare seeds were highly prized as an exotic flavour by Europeans, who used these “Grains of Paradise” in food and beverages. It was also believed to act as an aphrodisiac. In Africa, the seeds were traditionally chewed as sedatives against toothache and to warm the body. Its active spectrum contains 6-gingerol, 6-paradol and 6-shoagol, the spicy substances of the ginger supports the antibacterial effect of the spice. Like other spices, African Pepper is known for its stimulating and tonifying properties.
