Frequently Asked Questions

  • What types of vanilla products do you offer for commercial baking?

    • We offer a wide range of vanilla products tailored to the needs of commercial bakers. Our selection includes pure vanilla extracts, vanilla bean paste, whole vanilla beans, and artificial vanilla flavoring. We also offer bulk quantities to suit the volume of your operation.
  • How can I determine the quality of vanilla products?

    • The quality of vanilla can vary based on factors like origin, processing, and concentration. Our premium-grade vanilla products are sourced from top-quality beans, and we adhere to stringent quality control measures. Always look for indicators like a rich aroma, clear labeling, and a certificate of analysis for the most reliable quality.
  • What is the shelf life of your vanilla products?

    • The shelf life varies depending on the specific product. However, most of our vanilla extracts have a shelf life of up to two years when stored in a cool, dark place. Whole vanilla beans can last up to a year if properly stored.
  • What is the difference between pure vanilla extract and artificial vanilla flavoring?

    • Pure vanilla extract is made from real vanilla beans and contains natural vanillin. It offers a complex, rich flavor profile. Artificial vanilla, made from synthetic vanillin, mimics the primary flavor compound found in vanilla but lacks the depth and complexity of natural vanilla. While artificial vanilla is generally less expensive, it might not provide the nuanced flavor profile desired in high-quality baked goods.
  • How do I convert my recipes to use your vanilla bean paste instead of extract?

    • Generally, you can substitute vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract at a 1:1 ratio. However, because vanilla bean paste includes the seeds and additional components from the vanilla pod, it can add a richer flavor and visual appeal to your baked goods.
  • Do you offer discounts for bulk purchases?

    • Yes, we offer volume-based discounts for our commercial baking customers. If you are interested in purchasing large quantities, please contact our sales team to discuss your specific needs and to receive a custom quote.
  • How do I store bulk vanilla products to maintain quality?

    • Proper storage is crucial for maintaining the quality of your vanilla products. We recommend storing liquid vanilla products like extracts in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and temperature fluctuations. Whole vanilla beans should be kept in an airtight container to prevent them from drying out.
