I avoid all use of black pepper, also because the body just doesn't want it.  It has been so long since I have used it to remember exactly what happened, but soon after reading BTD, I stopped using it and each food list since has had it as an avoid, so it remains off limits...  I have noticed when buying a pre-made curry powder, that I will muscle test OK for some powder(s) if the pepper is way down on the ingredient list, but not if it is close to the top.

Oh yeah thank you all! I really begged this kind of comments.

Kim vacowgirl, what a pity to read. But luckily bell peppers are ok, they are warming, too maybe many A type persons should avoid them, too.

ABJoe, quite a clear connection! Very tiny amounts (and occasional eating) of many avoids seems to be very slightly harmful to many people. What kind of muscle problems do you get when eating more black pepper?

Does anyone have any thoughts of green pepper? Less mold? Freshly ground, too?

I have black pepper as an avoid. Dr. D said we could have some on our food if it's freshly ground, because the already ground one is full of mold. I noticed I just do better without it, because it will upset my stomach now.  I use paprika mostly.

I didn't think paprika had much taste.   Does yours?   What brand?

I use McCormick brand. The cheap brands are tasteless.. I realized that saving money by buying the cheap dollar brands is sacrificing flavor because they use lower quality herbs. I also find some good buys on spices in the Indian grocery store. I love the smell of spices when I walk in. It's intoxicating

A couple of years ago we were asking about using black pepper and why couldn't we use it?  Dr. D posted and said we could use fresh ground black pepper but the already ground pepper was often contaminated with mold toxin.  So it's up to you.

I'm pulling this up again because this subject has been on my mind lately.  I read all the posts and there is some great input.  

Like someone else posted here, I buy organic prairie beef slices and it has pepper on it.  I eat it because it's convenient.  I had avoided black pepper for a long long time.  But I recently found myself craving it.  So I wanted to know if there was a reason for it.  As green root stated, some sources claim it helps digestion.  Which would be good for AB's and A.  This sources says it actually boosts HCL.  And that would be a good thing for some of us.

http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=74

Anyways, I know we will sometimes crave foods that aren't good for us.  And maybe that's what's going on.  But it's hard to know.  But I do find myself really wanting it.  A LOT.  I don't eat it a lot.  I don't have any in the house.  But when I go to Panera and get the salmon salad, they put a good amount on the slab of salmon.  And I eat it.  I do scrape some of it off, as it's rather large.  Plus it has white pepper and black pepper.  I wonder what the ratings for white pepper are, if any different?  Anyways......

I'm not going to stop eating it on my slices and salmon.  I'm not so into it that I'll buy it, but I have a "gut" feeling it might not be all bad.  (Like that pun? )  I could be wrong, but then again......

Also, I totally think paprika has a strong flavor.  Maybe you guys are not tasters or you're getting junky stuff.  But it's funny, I went out to dinner for our anniversary and there was some soup my wife got.  Butternut squash soup.  I took a small tiny bite of hers and I was like WHOOOOA.  Come to find out it had cayenne pepper in it.  The chef claimed it was a tiny amount.  My wife said it wasn't that strong at all.  But I like tasted it RIGHT AWAY!  And I had about 1/3 of a teaspoon of the soup.  I definitely think some of us taste things differently.  The strange thing is, I think she's a "supertaster" and I'm more of a "taster".  But that might be a different substance that's on those strips.  That is some bitter substance.  Maybe the pepper thing is a different chemical to be tasting.

Anyways.....

My 17 cents on the matter.  I'm thankful for Mayflowers post, because if that is true, I might opt for the cracked pepper when it is fresh at times.  Maybe even buy some.  I don't know.  If the other stuff I'm eating that is already on the meat has mould in it, I'm no worse for the wear.  In fact, I've been gaining health and weight since I've been eating it.  It's possible it's not the best, but for some reason I'm not overly worried about it at this point.
