Why the Turmeric with Black Pepper Combo?

  1. Turmeric powder is a spice known for its health benefits since ages in Ayurveda. It’s the compound ‘curcumin’ in turmeric which possess the so-called nutritional attributes. However curcumin is poorly absorbed in the body as it is easily metabolized. 
  2. Thus its combination with black pepper came into limelight. Freshly ground black pepper contains a compound viz. ‘piperine’ which inhibits the metabolism of curcumin and thus makes more of curcumin available to the body. Thus piperine increases the amount of curcumin being absorbed in the body too. 
  3. What more? You also need to add a dose of fat in this combo, as curcumin is fat-soluble and is absorbed the most in presence of a fat like ghee or coconut oil or olive oil. 
  4. हल्दी में मौजूद करक्यूमिन कैंसर की रोकथाम और उपचार में लाभकारी पाया गया है। 

Ratio of Turmeric Powder to Black Pepper

  1. There is no specific ratio of turmeric powder to black pepper to be consumed in reality. It is said that the average content of curcumin in turmeric ranges from 4-7% and average content of piperine in black pepper ranges from 2-7%. A ratio of 100:1 of curcumin to piperine is recommended. However this quantity seems to be very small. Since it is difficult to get perfect ratios of these bioactive compounds, to make it simpler it is said that even 1/20th of pepper powder is enough to increase the bioavailability of curcumin from turmeric powder. This means that 1 tsp of turmeric powder (2 g) can be combined with 1/8th tsp of freshly ground black pepper powder (250 mg).

I mix it all together turmeric ginger black pepper with coconut oil. It does go a little hard. This does not worry me. I take it every morning 1 teaspoon have been doing this for about 5 years. Are you saying it does not work as well by mixing a lot together regards Betty

Thanks for the recipe. If I am using 5 gram of turmeric, 1/10 teaspoonful of black pepper is kinda too little to blend really smooth. Will the black pepper loose its active ingredient if I ground a weeks supply for everyday use instead of grinding the little quantity needed everyday?

Tarla Dalal    Thank you for your feedback. There is no need to blend this mixture. You just need to mix it. Also it is best served immediately after mixing. Kindly share your feedback on recipes and articles you like.

Tarla Dalal    Pepper may irritate the digestive tract and that may be a reason for acidity.
