The aroma of Szechuan peppercorn is similar to that of lavender. When consumed, the first taste is bitter, then a numbing heat is sensed, followed by citrus flavour. This spice is famous for the powerful numbing sensation it causes around the mouth.

These peppercorns contain the molecule hydroxy-alpha-sanshool which interacts with nerve cell receptors in the lips and mouth.

It excites the touch sensors and the confusing sensation feels like numbness. With enough stimulation, it feels like the area has gone numb.


Health Benefits of Szechuan Pepper 

  1. Stimulates circulation - For someone who feels lethargic, weak, or lightheaded without knowing why this may be due to a condition known as anaemia. Those suffering from anaemia lack the amount of healthy red blood cells that help in carrying adequate oxygen to the various body tissues. It is one of the most common health problems and is also known as iron deficiency. Szechuan peppers contain a high level of iron which helps in providing enough haemoglobin in the body which thus help in oxygenating the red blood cells and stimulate the circulatory system.
  2. Helps in reducing pain - Although Szechuan peppers are associated with spice and heat, it also actually works as an analgesic (pain killer) substance. The phytochemicals that are present in Szechuan peppers can grip pain receptors and eliminate the nervous system from producing pain or discomfort. It is not a cure for pain but will definitely help in relieving it.
  3. Can help boost immunity - Szechuan peppers have high levels of zinc in them which makes them potent for strengthening the immune system. Zinc is highly beneficial in keeping immunity in check. The volatile oils that are present in Szechuan pepper are packed with excellent amounts of antioxidants and other important chemicals that have anti-fungal and antiviral properties that make them extremely effective.
  4. Aids in appetite - It is often very difficult to gain back a normal appetite after recovering from an illness. However, it is during this time that the body is continuously healing and repairing and is in need of the maximum level of nutrients. There are many different compounds in Szechuan peppers that help in stimulating the appetite and also improves the rate of metabolism, which means that it will aid in deriving essential nutrients from the food eaten at a faster rate.
  5. Helps in strengthening bones - Quite a few essential minerals are found in minimum quantity within Szechuan peppers which include copper, manganese, phosphorus, and iron that play an extremely important role in building up strong bones. These compounds also help in preventing age-related problems like osteoporosis (bones become weak and increase the chances of breaking). The density of bone minerals in our body decreases as we get older, so it is very important for us to supplement ourselves with maximum quantities of minerals whenever possible. This infusion is very helpful in providing these essential minerals and keeping the bones strong.

How to Store Szechuan Peppercorn?

Here are a few simple steps to follow in order to keep your Szechuan peppercorns fresh for a longer duration.

  1. Store it in an airtight container and remember to close the lid of the container tightly as soon as you finish using it.
  2. Before storing them in airtight containers, make sure the peppercorns, as well as the bottle, are thoroughly dried because the presence of moisture will cause the seeds to develop molds.
  3. Coloured bottles are a better option to store the peppercorns as it protects it from direct sunlight. If you are using clear bottles, remember to store them in closed cabinets or wall racks which do not receive direct sunlight.
  4. Store it away from stoves, ovens, windows and do not keep it on the top of a refrigerator because the heat emitted from them causes the peppercorns to lose their strength and volatile content.

What Is The Shelf-life of Szechuan Peppercorns?
