Black Pepper Substitute
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi, everybody. Due to multiple food intolerances, cooking from scratch is a must for me. So, I add my own spices. I'm really having trouble finding something to substitute for black pepper since it's one of the things I cannot have.

Does anyone have a suggestion about something I could use in place of pepper? (I already use onion and garlic.) Cannot use peppers in any form (green, red, hot, chili, peppercorns.... none of it)

Thanks for your ideas.

i dont have ideas for substitutes, BUT im curious how exactly they identified your igg allergy to black pepper... cause i have read that black pepper can be bothersome to some because it has a mold on it, but that if you grind it fresh it may be tolerable.. but i really dont know anything about Igg allergy testing & identification, etc...

just thought id share that

I would just leave the pepper out. You probably won't notice it unless it is something that is normally very peppery.

I guess I didn't do a good job of communicating. I'm looking for "heat". Spicy heat. In my part of the country, salsa is just as much as condiment as ketchup. I'm afraid there isn't much I can do about missing it. :(

Fresh ginger has nice heat. I also use dried chiles and grind them and use as a seasoning (i.e. in my salsas, sauces). Garlic is pungent but mellow when roasted.

CassP,

I couldn't find any docs where I lived that would do anything other than tell me to take more pills. I wanted to get to the REASON that I was having D multiple times a day, making life miserable. So, I ordered a test kit called YorkTest. I didn't know the test would go back to the UK for processing, but it did. Of course, I had to pay for it out of pocket, but it was worth it in the long run.

I haven't tried this myself because I don't like black pepper. I have been told that papaya seeds are a good substitute.

Yes, I've also read that ginger root apparently has some heat to it, while the ground one does not. I think perhaps mustard might provide some heat as well, especially the Chinese mustard, as I've read it is the hottest. The horseradish idea is another one to try.

Although cumin and turmeric aren't really hot, they are among the kinds of spices you'll find in curries, so perhaps these might help bring the flavor closer to what you're looking for, when combined with the hot spices mentioned in this thread.

Wasabi powder? It's horseradish, but distinct.

Dang sure unstops my nose.

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
