Benefits of Black Pepper
Black Pepper Basics
A teaspoon of ground black pepper contains 6 calories and only a trace amount of fat. That same teaspoon of ground black pepper also supplies 0.6 gram of fiber. That doesnt sound like much, but in that tiny amount of food you get 3 percent of the minimum of 20 grams of fiber you need each day, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. A teaspoon of ground black pepper contains 3.8 micrograms of vitamin K, a nutrient that helps your blood clot normally.
