Vanilla is an Orchid plant which grows climbing up an existing tree like a vine. Its name in Spanish means ‘little pod’—the orchid flower turns into seeds pods where the aroma compounds are found.

Known to be first cultivated by the Totonac tribes in eastern Mexico around the 15th century, and later on by the Aztecs.

Vanilla is the second-most expensive spice after saffron, mainly because of its labor intensive production.

There are three main kinds of Vanilla:

  1. Vanilla planifolia (fragrans) grown in Madagascar, Reunion, and other tropical areas along the Indian Ocean;
  2. Vanilla tahitensis grown in the South Pacific;
  3. Vanilla pompona found in the West Indies, and Central and South America, the last of which is the most used worldwide.

It is estimated that 95% of Vanilla products are artificially flavored with artificial Vanillin made from Lignin or Guaiacol which are extracted from coal tar and wood.

The natural Vanilla extract is richer in taste and offers health benefits such as antioxidants that are not available from the artificial Vanillin.

Aroma: Rich, sweet, balsamic, deeply satisfying
