It depends on your metabolic rate, what else you've eaten with it, and whether your body is properly producing digestive enzymes.

Black pepper is primarily carbohydrates, with some protein, so it will be metabolized relatively quickly.

There is no exact time frame that black pepper stays in the body. However, it is known that it does sit in the body for many years. This is because our bodies cannot break down black pepper.

Yes, the body can digest black pepper. The old wives tale, 'pepper is forever' is simply not true. Pepper heats up your metabolism to help you lose weight.
