Vanilla Extract - Spices and Herbs

Vanilla Extract

Our Spice Islands® pure 100% vanilla extract is so rich and naturally sweet, there’s no need to add corn syrup like some other brands.

We use beans from Madagascar, considered by gourmet chefs and master bakers to be the world’s finest. Then we carefully process the beans to draw out the natural aromatic flavor.

Some vanillas you may find in the store may have been sourced from Mexico, Indonesia or Tahiti. But in Madagascar, the warm, moist climate and fertile soil produce vanilla with a rich flavor you’ll love in your desserts and baked goods.

Vanilla beans come from orchids. Every orchid must be pollinated by hand on the very day it blooms. The painstaking process means the beans are quite valuable. In fact, some growers actually brand each bean to prevent theft.
