Product information

What makes our vanilla bean paste different from other brands? We cram as much vanilla as possible into a bottle, only adding just enough glycerine and glucose to make it easy to work with. One small 30g jar contains the equivalent of 2 vanilla beans. Apart from making the paste non-alcoholic, the glycerine helps to draw as much flavour out of the vanilla bean as possible and has the added benefit of making cakes and cookies extra moist. We add a touch of glucose to sweeten the paste and help suspend the beautiful vanilla seeds and avoid the paste from separating.

How to use it:

Vanilla bean paste is an affordable and easy way to add intense vanilla flavour into cakes, cookies, custards, set desserts and ice cream.
