White Pepper is black pepper that has been soaked to remove the outer husk. It is hotter and less fragrant than black pepper. It is one of the most versatile spices, particularly used in European cooking so as to not blemish creamy white sauces with black specs of pepper.
Pepper has Piperine compounds that improve digestion and calms nausea. Also, it is known to have anti-inflammatory, carminative, anti-flatulent properties.
It can be used similarly to black pepper ground, especially in light and white dishes for aesthetic reasons. Add at the last minutes in the recipes, because prolonged cooking results in evaporation of essential oils
Use to flavour any light colour meat like fish and poultry
Flavour soups and vegetables

Use to flavour light and cream-based sauces
Use in mashed potatoes
It is common in Chinese cooking, and also used in aromatic Vietnamese soups and pork dishes, as well as in many Swedish dishes
Due to its subtle citrus notes, it is ideal ground and mixed with olive oil and lemon juice for a zesty vinaigrette
