Vanilla Bean House offers two types of vanilla bean pods - Vanilla Planifolia and Vanilla Tahitensis. Each variety carries it's own unique flavour profiles. The Planifolia vanilla bean pods (also known as Bourbon vanilla) give a rich, creamy, classic vanilla flavour, while Tahitensis (or Tahitian) vanilla bean pods are highly aromatic and carry sweet, floral and fruity notes.
You can choose either Vanilla Tahitensis vanilla bean pods or Vanilla Planifolia vanilla bean pods. All our vanilla bean pods are naturally rainforest grown without the use of pesticides. Vanilla Bean House is committed to providing only ethically and sustainably sourced vanilla bean pods. We proudly support micro farmers and their customary extended families.

Vanilla is a tropical orchid that bears plump vanilla bean pods that are highly aromatic and full of caviar!
Our gourmet vanilla bean pods are perfect for a wide range of recipes, for making the best vanilla essence or vanilla paste, craft beer brewing and more!
Our pure, organic, ground vanilla powder is made from a combination of two types of vanilla beans - Planifolia and Tahitensis. Each variety of vanilla carries it's own unique flavour profiles. We use two varieties to make our vanilla powder, to capture the flavour profiles unique to each species, making it an excellent all rounder. The Planifolia vanilla beans give a rich, creamy, classic vanilla flavour, while Tahitensis vanilla beans are highly aromatic and brings sweet, floral, fruity notes to the party.
Our vanilla powder is made from 100% whole, fresh, unaltered, organic vanilla beans. Aside from the seeds / caviar the actual vanilla pod holds a huge amount of flavour. Our vanilla beans are gently dried and then ground in small batches. This is more labour intensive & expensive way to produce vanilla powder than what is generally available, but it's the only way to guarantee the best quality and freshness.
Most vanilla sellers buy their vanilla powder pre-ground. When vanilla powder is purchased pre-ground, not only is there no way of knowing how old it is, but often it has already had the flavour extracted to make vanilla essence. Their vanilla powder is then made from the flavourless, dried out, leftover vanilla bean pods (this is known as spent beans)... We're not into that. We stand behind our product and only sell the best quality vanilla powder that we would be 100% happy to receive and use ourselves!
Unlike essence, extract or paste, vanilla powder is not diluted in any way. Being made from pure vanilla bean, vanilla powder is potent so a little goes a long way. Half a teaspoon of vanilla powder is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of extract.
Our vanilla powder is a versatile favourite for cakes, biscuits, and slices, providing authentic vanilla flavour with a unique speckled appearance. It's a great substitute for vanilla extract or paste, elevating the taste and presentation of your baked goods. Use vanilla powder anywhere you would use a vanilla extract or paste where you want great flavour with that real vanilla, speckled look.
