WHAT ARE CUBEB PEPPER BERRIES?
A close relative of black pepper, the cubeb pepper berry is the dried, unripe fruit of the Piper cubeba plant, which is native to Java and other Indonesian islands. It is sometimes known as tailed pepper due to the berry’s pericarp tapering off into a distinctive stubby tail. Upon being harvested, the berries are sun-dried until they take on their characteristic dark, raisin-like appearance.
While it is a member of the pepper family, the cubeb pepper berry is actually a drupe, not a peppercorn. Despite this, it is still used like whole peppercorns as a seasoning in Moroccan, North African, Indonesian and Asian cuisines.
Often described as a cross between allspice and pepper, cubeb pepper berries have a rich, distinctive taste that is well-suited to exotic Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. They also boast a vast array of rare functional molecules that are not found in most other foods or spices. It should come as no surprise then that cubeb pepper berries have a long history of use as an herbal remedy in both Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
CUBEB PEPPER BERRIES
ARE PACKED WITH IMMUNE-SUPPORTING COMPOUNDS**
The cubeb pepper berry is the pepper of choice in Indonesia and Malaysia, likely due to its abundance of immune-supporting bioactive compounds. It is believed that Arab doctors were the first to discover the berry’s health-promoting properties. Cubeb pepper berries contain high levels of hinokinin, a powerful phytonutrient known to support optimal immune function.
The essential oil derived from dried cubeb pepper berries also consists of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. These potent compounds possess natural properties that can help combat external threats. Additionally, one of the monoterpenes in cubeb pepper berries is an antioxidant called sabinene. This potent antioxidant can support your immunity by protecting you from oxidative stress and promoting your overall health and well-being.
