This project is to investigate the effects of several different drying treatments on the bioactivity of P. nigrum fruits (black pepper). It was found that microwave and oven 100 C drying gave the best drying effects in terms of antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. The results obtained from this study could be beneficial to the pepper industry.
