Our vanilla powder is made from a combination of two types of vanilla beans - Planifolia and Tahitensis. Each variety carries it's own unique flavour profiles. We use both varieties to make our vanilla powder to capture the flavour profiles unique to each species, making it an excellent all rounder. The planifolia gives a rich, creamy, classic vanilla flavour, while tahitensis vanilla is highly aromatic and brings sweet, floral notes to the party.
We make our vanilla powder from 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 quality and freshness.
Most vanilla sellers buy their powder pre-ground. When 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 and it's the leftover bean pods ground up (this is known as spent beans)... We're not into that. We stand behind our product and only sell the best quality vanilla 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 powder is equivalent to 1 teas 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 it anywhere you would use a vanilla extract or paste where you want great flavour with the real vanilla, speckled look.
