Product Abstract: Native to Madagascar, Vanilla plantifolia is a perennial climbing vine that can grow up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall. When cultivated, its deep, trumpet-shaped flowers must be hand-pollinated; in nature, hummingbirds do the work. The green capsules/fruit are picked, and the immature vanilla pod/bean is fermented and dried to turn it into a fragrant brown vanilla bean. Madagascar-grown Vanilla plantifolia is believed to possess a higher concentration of Vanillin than the beans grown in other countries, making this superior bourbon variety more richly fragrant.
One of the most popular flavours in the world, Vanilla is a staple in cuisine, cosmetics, and perfumery. However, the constituent, vanillin makes it difficult to use in soap making and candles. Because of reduced availability due to regional conflicts, the price of Vanilla has risen to the level of most absolutes. Nonetheless, the true oleoresin is recognized for its impeccable quality and is considered to be well worth the price.
