Vannilla Facts

Plant family

Orchidaceae (orchid family)

Plant part used to extract essence
The ripe fruit (pod), frequently (but wrongly) called bean. Most of the fragrance resides in the seeds and the oily liquid surrounding the seeds.

The Process


Stages of production
The pods are harvested while green and immature. At this stage, they are odourless.

Both the vanilla orchid and the ripe vanilla bean lack aroma. It is only during the curing process that glucovanillin, a vanillin precursor formed during the ripening of the vanilla fruit, is enzymatically converted to glucose and vanillin.

Synthetic VS Natural

Pure natural vanilla
Pure natural vanilla is an extremely complex flavor. The major flavor component of vanilla beans is natural vanillin, which may appear as a white crystalline material on well cured aged beans. In addition, there are 300 other flavor components most of which are present in trace amounts.
