Our Ground Vanilla Bean Powder is made of whole gourmet vanilla beans and ground to a fine powder. It is a great alternative to vanilla extract and gives you a delicious vanilla flavour without the added alcohol. One advantage of vanilla powder is that, even under high heat, it will impart its intense flavour. Because extract contains alcohol, it loses some of its potency when baking at high temperature because of evaporation. You can also simply add to your smoothies, oatmeal mix, ground coffee beans or custom tea blend to add a delicious vanilla flavour.
As a general rule, you can substitute 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder.
The 20g size is packaged in a glass jar and 50g size is packaged in a kraft pouch.
Dear Vanilla & Spice I can't tell you just how pleased I am with the Vanilla Bean
Powder. It really packs a sublime vanilla punch to the muffins and carrot cake I have made so far. Wonderful stuff. It blends beautifully too. So very happy to have found your website.
Convenient, delicious, and beautiful in my pastries.
As a maker of premium quality goat cheeses and chocolate, I value this vanilla powder immensely! The smallest amount makes a big difference in our products flavour. For me, I find vanilla similar to adding a pinch of salt or sugar. The goal is not to taste like salt or sugar, or vanilla, the goal is to accentuate the natural flavours that are already present in the food. This vanilla powder is spectacular at doing just this! I have never found anything else like it. AND I feel great supporting the two amazing women who own this company and farmers in Madagascar. <3
Absolutely love this product!
