Vanilla Bean Powder is made from pure vanilla beans that are harvested when ripe, sun-dried and ground locking in flavour, aroma and freshness. The vanilla bean is a long pod-shaped fruit that’s harvested from the vanilla orchid that flowers only once a year. Each pod has thousands of sweetly scented seeds inside known as the vanilla caviar. Used in cuisines around the world to add a buttery, sweet flavour and aroma, vanilla is one of the most pure and most-used spices.
The most superior beans are dried to a moisture content of 25-30%.
The vanilla bean, or pod, is the long slender fruit of the vanilla orchid. Each pod contains thousands of seeds. It is one of the most expensive spices due to its complex and long curing process, particularly due to the orchid only flowering once per year. Vanilla beans are used in most of the world’s cuisines.
They are the purest and most potent form of vanilla and can be reused to steep in the liquid until losing their flavour, or the seeds inside can be scraped out and the pod discarded. It has a floral aroma and a smooth caramel flavor. The best beans are air-dried to a moisture content of 25-30%.
