Wikipedia SummaryIt is commonly known as grains of paradise, melegueta pepper, alligator pepper, Guinea grains, ossame, or fom wisa. The term Guinea pepper has also been used, but is most often applied to Xylopia aethiopica (grains of Selim). Mentioned by Pliny as 'African pepper' but subsequently forgotten in Europe, they were renamed 'grains of paradise' and became a popular substitute for black pepper in Europe in the 14th and 15th centuries. By the 1880, the 9th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica reported: 'Grains of paradise are to some extent used in veterinary practice, but for the most part illegally to give a fictitious strength to malt liquors, gin, and cordials'.The presence of the seeds in the diets of lowland gorillas in the wild seems to have some sort of beneficial effect on their cardiovascular health. Folk medicine and ritual uses == In West African folk medicine, grains of paradise are valued for their warming and digestive properties, and among the Efik people in Nigeria have been used for divination and ordeals determining guilt.
