(be the first to review)


Tasmannia lanceolata (Winteraceae family) is a dioecious, insect pollinated shrub or small tree occasionally reaching heights of 10 m. The dried fruit is increasingly becoming utilized as a pepper substitute.

Tasmannia species contain polygodial, the substance responsible for the warm/hot/pungent flavour. The biological activity of polygodial has been reported in the scientific literature to include antifungal and antimicrobial activities, antihyperalgesia, potent attachment-inhibitory activity, insect antifeedant activity, antinociception, vasorelaxation action in vessels of rabbit and guinea pig, anti-inflammatory and antiallergic activities (wikipedia, sic).
