Vanilla Extract Production
Natural Vanilla Store produce vanilla extract to our own proprietary recipe using fresh vanilla pods and all natural ingredients. Its superior taste is liked by our customers across the world. We have two versions being the standard type which uses alcohol as the preservative and a certified Halal non-alcohol type where all natural palm free glycerine is used as the preservative in place of alcohol. Our vanilla extract is made using all natural ingredients with no preservatives, no colouring agents and no restricted substances. Our alcohol version uses only 15% alcohol as the 30% alcohol used by other manufactures overpowers the vanilla taste.
Vanilla Extract Uses
In true fine dining and gourmet cooking the use of real vanilla extract can be recognised by the exquisite aroma and flavour imparted into the food as proof that genuine vanilla has been used in the preparation of the dish. Many of our long term commercial customers appreciate the flavour and aroma of our vanilla extract which we produced from our own proprietary recipe using fresh vanilla pods. Customers have been using our extract in large quantities for the preparation of beverages such as pressed fruit juice blends, baked goods such as cookies and cakes and for desserts such as panna cotta, custard, creme brule, cream caramel and cheesecake. Food products that are cooked will evaporate out the alcohol however for food that does not require cooking such as ice cream and yogurt it is suggest that the non-alcohol extract is used.
Many food products containing our vanilla extract have been produced by our commercial customers around the world. Our commercial customers require assurance that we meet standards of food safety and that our extract is free from harmful substances and organisms and meet international regulatory food requirements. For this reason our quality assurance requires that our Food Safety Program, Product Specifications, Certificate of Analysis and Microbiology are all maintained to international standards.
Ethically Sourced and Organically Cultivated
The vanilla beans used for producing our vanilla extract have been sourced ethically with good market rates paid to the growers. They have also been cultivated organically without the use of chemicals or artificial fertilisers. Although the vanilla pods used for producing our extract are not officially certified organic, the vanilla pods have been cultivated using organic methods. The rich soils in the vanilla growing regions require no artificial fertilisers and as vanilla orchids have a high level of natural resistance to pests and diseases no chemical sprays are used.
