I need some quick help. I'm refilling my peppermill and I opened a fresh package of my pepper (well within it's expiration date) and I noticed this "sand" looking stuff. Anyone know what that is? Is it safe?

I'm 99% certain it's ground pepper. Nothing to worry about.
It's probably the result of an industrial process where 1,000 tons of pepper is blasted along a production line and forced into neat little plastic bags!
That’s what I think. Pepper residue…aka pepperdew. :wink:

That's what I was thinking, but the "blonde" color threw me.
