The global pepper market is driven by factors such as rising demand for convenient foods, bakery products and processed foods. In addition, rise in disposable income, changing food consumption patterns, rapid urbanization and rise in meat consumption is escalating the demand of spices and particularly for pepper. Pepper due to its antibacterial and antioxidant properties is also extensively used in health care and personal care & cosmetics industries.
Adulteration is one of the major concerns for the spice industry. All spices whether, rare or common have their particular adulterants that they are mixed while preparation of the spices or entirely substitute the original spices. The black pepper is adulterated with dried seeds of papaya which look exactly like the real black pepper. It is almost next to impossible to detect this adulteration in large quantities of pepper. In the course of steaming process, whole pepper’s volatile oil is extracted and then its seeds are colored and mixed with unutilized pepper seeds in minute ratios.
