Exhausted Vanilla Seeds are used extensively in the food industry. The Seeds in their virgin state are known as caviar but are extremely expensive to buy particularly at the moment in this highly volatile vanilla market as it is today.
These Exhausted Vanilla seeds are seeds from pods which have been previously used in the production of Vanilla Extract.
The Exhausted Pods are dried and sieved to separate the seeds and the seeds are then steam sterilised.
These Exhausted Seeds will give a very mild vanilla flavour and are mainly used for texture and visual appearance. They are extensively used in the ice cream industry, chocolatiers and also used in bakery, beverage and confectionery products.
