Our Madagascan Premium Vanilla Powder is made by drying the whole vanilla bean, and grinding it into a fine powder. Unlike lesser imitations our vanilla powder is 100% pure and completely sugar free.
Powdered vanilla offers unique properties. While the heat of many dishes will diminish the flavour of the alcohol based liquid vanilla extract, vanilla powder will retain the flavour much better. It also works really well in dishes that won’t benefit from added liquid
Pure ground vanilla beans are more potent than vanilla extract which means that you need to use less (approx. half of stipulated quantity) in recipes.
Perfect for baked goods, liquids and cream based dishes, vanilla powder dissolves easily and imparts a wonderfully strong, mellow flavour. It mixes easily with liquids without lumping and can be used to add flavour to cakes, breads, biscuits, frostings and meringues. It also works well for traditional cream based desserts including custards and ice cream.
Recommended usage rate of 3/5gr per Kg of preparation/mixture.
For a quick treat, the Vanillaetc team also love a liberal sprinkling of vanilla powder on fresh fruit, toast and yoghurt, or added to coffee or porridge. Try it yourselves – we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
