  85. We obtain our vanilla from the world’s main vanilla-growing countries. In order of vanilla production, they are: Madagascar, Mexico and Tahiti. As with wine, chocolate and coffee, the vanilla from each country has its own distinctive flavor profile and characteristics as a result of the different climates, soils, curing methods and species of vanilla used. For instance, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla has a creamy, sweet flavor. Mexican vanilla, in addition to creamy and sweet notes, also has a bit of spice to it. Tahitian vanilla carries with it the fruity and flowery attributes of the islands from which it originates.

    Q: I love your products, but recently discovered I have a corn allergy. Could you tell me if corn-based alcohols are used in your products? – Jennifer K.
    A: Our Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract uses organically-certified sugar beet alcohol. Our vanilla beans are simply just beans and so don’t use any alcohol. Because of your corn allergy, these are the best products for you to use. Our other pure vanilla and flavor extracts, as well as the Pure Vanilla Bean Pastes, Pure Vanilla Powder and Rose and Orange Blossom Waters, use a corn-based alcohol as part of the extraction process.
