MADAGASCAN VANILLA BEAN PASTE

In 2018, we reached the decision to produce our own Extracts & Paste with the hope of being able to manufacture a better product. We are now producing excellent quality Vanilla Extracts and Paste, far superior to that which we were having manufactured for us.

Our Great Taste Award-winning Madagascan Vanilla Bean Paste is made using our 1 Fold Madagascan Vanilla Extract, combined with a natural thickener to change the consistency. Perfect for recipes like crème Brulée and Ice Cream where the appearance of the little specs of Vanilla seeds is really important. Available sizes: 1kg Bottle / 500g Jar / 100g Jar
