Life Story of the Raw Organic Ground Vanilla
By far the most expensive ingredient by weight that we purchase. The beans we source need up to ten months to mature, and are then hand-picked and require an additional six months to cure. Our Ground Vanilla Bean Powder is cultivated in Papua New Guinea and our source works directly with family and sustainable growers. Pure Ground Vanilla is not the same as Vanilla Powder, which is a combination of sugar or dextrose and ground vanilla or vanilla extract.
Vanilla beans are known and loved for their sweet aroma and taste. However, they do also have some health benefits. Vanilla beans contain antioxidants that help prevent damage to the cells caused by free radicals. Studies also show that the chemical component in vanilla beans helps lower the body’s cholesterol levels.
