Ground Vanilla Bean Powder Production
Natural Vanilla Store stocks a large quantity of ground vanilla bean powder which has been ground to a very small particle size. It is produced from a blend of Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla pods that have been sourced from various vanilla plantations in regions such as Madagascar, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. The very fine grind size makes it suitable for use as flavouring, texture and aesthetic appearance in many types of foods. The ground vanilla bean powder has a delicate vanilla aroma that is less intense than fresh vanilla pods due to the drying and grinding process.
Ground Vanilla Bean Powder Uses
Many of our long term commercial customers have been using the ground vanilla bean powder in large quantities for chai latte blends, chocolate, soy bean drink blends, protein shakes, pressed fruit juice blends, tea blends and baked goods such as cookies and cakes. When added during food preparation it imparts a subtle vanilla flavour and colour that permeates through the dish.
Many manufactured food products containing our ground vanilla bean powder have been produced by our commercial customers and exported around the world for consumption in several international markets. 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 Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans used for producing our ground vanilla powder 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 ground vanilla bean powder 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.
