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.

    • Hi Michelle and welcome I'm guessing you're like me and from the UK? Which means that sadly much of Tessa's list won't be accessible, but don't worry there's plenty to eat here too. I'll go ahead and reply as if your a Brit, if not ignore me Be careful not to scare yourself by doing this. There are a lot of sites that sensationalise or try to scare you into buying their products. You've found a good site here, make use of it, but don't be afraid to turn the web off if its all getting a bit much.  One site you should go to and join is Coeliacs UK. They will send you a book with all the brands you can trust and this will be worth its weight in gold. You can also access it online. Highly recommended.  As above. Go and have a great time. The diet can start on your return. One final thing. It can get overwhelming in the first few months and it's a massive shock, at times you will feel sad and maybe resentful, you will go through a bit of a grief process in other words, but it will get better as you learn the ropes and you will feel so much better once you're on the diet.  As you learn try to let others around you know so that they understand and you don't feel too isolated. Use this site too, there's lots of help and understanding available here Best of luck and enjoy Turkey!    
    • celiac disease typically screws up your whole autoimmune system. in my case, it took several years to identify all of the intolerances. there are different responses to different substances... you may have one or several of them depending on the substance. Mine include nausea, abdominal pain, lethargy, brain fog, cramping, muscle tightness (resulting in joint pain), muscle spasm, creepy crawly skin, skin dryness leading to lesions/ psoriasis, diarrhea, constipation, sudden weight gain/loss of 2-3 lbs per day.   the frustrating part is/was that the more I stayed away from gluten and other offenders, the better/stronger i felt but then i would discover another substance that had been hiding but now was brought to the forefront since the maybe-more-offending irritant was now gone. this went on for a couple years.  i now have a huge list of offenders and very few acceptable foods, but I keep reading and experimenting hoping for a more varied and healthier diet.   i refer to myself as a human test subject because essentially you have to try something in order to gauge its effect.
    • Enjoy your trip and worry about the diet until after you get back unless you are having severe symptoms.  Then follow Ennis' advice about gluten-free restaurant cards in various languages.  Lots of us have traveled successfully.  You just need to prepare a bit more.   In the meantime, savor your gluten-filled food until your endoscopy.  My advice (anemia was my only symptom)?  Do not over do it.  I pigged out.  By the end of seven weeks (I had lots of work issues that prevented an earlier endoscopy), my gut was hurting.  
    • Yes- her sister has actually been genetically tested through Prometheus labs about 5-6 years ago by a gastric when she was having lots of stomach issues. She had recently been diagnosed with the Hashimoto's and was having recurring bouts of constipation/diarrhea.  i think that is another reason why I kind of thought that my other daughters problems were not celiac. Their father and I do not have any known autoimmune so we should probably be tested at some point. 
    • I don't see any gluten
