All about Pepper, White

Did you know?

The difference between white peppercorns and black peppercorns is when the berries are harvested. White peppercorns are fully ripened berries that once picked, have their outer skin removed.

When choosing between black and white, aesthetics are frequently the consideration. When making a white or light colored dish, you may simply not want black flecks in it!


White pepper is somewhat milder than black, but still hot, earthy and spicy.

Food Complements

To maximize freshness, store in a dark airtight container in a cool dry place. Once the spice is ground, flavor deteriorates with exposure to light, heat, air, humidity and time.
Refills arrive in air-tight plastic bags. Simply snip a corner of your bag, refill your Smith & Truslow jar, apply the new label and recycle the bag.

Product Testing

In response to concerns over food safety, many in the spice industry are taking measures to provide you with the information you seek. While testing has always been conducted, certificates of analysis (COAs) are now accompanying most products through the supply chain. COAs identify country of origin, certifications, best by dates, and information on product testing.

As of August 2022, Smith & Truslow spice jar labels have “best by” dates (as opposed to “packaged on” dates), and include lot numbers that correspond to the COA for the enclosed spice or herb. If you would like to review the COA for the lot we are currently selling, or for one that you have already purchased, please send an email to: Be sure to indicate 1) the spice name, and 2) the lot number, and we’ll respond with a PDF of the COA, as is available.
