Clean Bioprocess for white pepper production

A simpler, more cost-effective and pollution-free microbial technology that ensures production of superior quality white pepper within a short span of time as compared to the conventional routes. This microbial process has been developed for bulk production of white pepper by enabling clean removal of pepper skin from fresh and dried black pepper. The process is designed to cleave the pectin molecular bonding between the skin and oil glands of the pepper kernel by the actions of enzymes produced in-situ. The process uses enzymes to degrade pectins, the cementing tissues present in between the skin and oil glands on the pepper kernel. The process also generates methane gas and organic fertilizer as a by- products…
