Taking premium, hand-selected beans cultivated on the Bourbon Island of Madagascar, we use our proprietary cold extraction process to gently draw out and preserve the vanilla's over 300 flavor compounds. The result is a sweet, creamy, mellow flavor with velvety after-tones, perfect for cooking and baking both sweet and savory dishes. An exceptional "all-purpose" vanilla.One tablespoon of vanilla extract is equivalent to one vanilla bean.

Truly fine vanilla is at once rich, sweet and sophisticated, possessing a euphoric flavor and fragrance that sends pure joy to the pleasure centers of the brain. Vanilla is warm. It's complex. It can have a bit of spice. Or flowery notes. It is the most popular flavor in the world. And to the vanilla lovers at Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, it is our ultimate passion.

Vanilla is the most popular and widely used flavor in the world. And, yet, it's only grown in a few countries and regions. Below you'll discover where the beans are grown, why these regions are ideal and how the vanilla from each region differs.

Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia Andrews) originated in Mexico and for centuries was the exclusive secret of the native Totonac Indians who were later conquered by the Aztecs. The Aztecs in turn were conquered by Cortez who brought vanilla pods with him back to Spain, thus introducing the flavorful beans to the rest of the world.
