Lectin in Black and White Pepper - for B's apparently!

In Response To: Cindy, help me out here. (^heidi^ O iNFj)

I have made the fatal error of thinking that the black and white pepper issue was the same for O's as it is for B's. I checked in my copy of ER4YT last night and I saw that peppercorns are indeed neutral for both O's and B's, whereas ground pepper is also an avoid for both O's and B's. However, the text of the O section says only that pepper is an irritant to the O stomach. Meanwhile in the B section, it says that there is a lectin in both white and black pepper.

So, the fresh ground pepper is pretty clearcut for you O's, but we B's still have a pretty confusing thing regarding pepper. Since there is indeed a lectin issue for B's, are peppercorns neutral because not enough of the lectin is secreted from the whole peppercorn, when in a recipe, to make it bad enough to be an avoid? But the ground pepper has the lectin coming out all over?

There you go! My confusing 'B' pepper issue. Sorry for mistakenly including you O's.
