Vanilla has never been so exciting.

Description

With its thick, molasses-like consistency, Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract allows you to add delicious vanilla flavor to batters, sauces and glazes without thinning them out. Uncut vanilla seeds add texture, visual flair and sophisticated flavor to recipes such as crème brûlée and ice cream.

Nielsen-Massey’s proprietary cold extraction process preserves the more than 300 flavor compounds contained in natural vanilla to create the distinctive flavor that’s prized in professional bakeries and home kitchens alike. Hands-down, this is the finest vanilla available—you’ll find it in all our baking classes.

Vanilla is one of the world’s most labor-intensive flavors, demanding a human touch at each step during the 18-month growing process. Nielsen-Massey has built solid, long-term supplier relationships that provide access to the world’s highest-quality beans. Skilled farmers hand-pollinate vanilla vines daily and pick beans when they are at their peak. Beans are then hand cured for six to eight months to cultivate complex flavors. Each bean is carefully evaluated for quality, so that each of Nielsen-Massey’s vanilla products delivers distinctive, pure vanilla flavor that customers have enjoyed for more than 100 years.

THE BEST OF THE BEST
Once I started using this vanilla, I couldn't dream of going back to anything else. It's AMAZING, perfect balance of flavors and adds a richness to everything you make. Despite being almost $20 for a giant bottle, I still turn to this for all my baking (and I do a LOT of baking). The vanilla bean paste is also an excellent product (i could eat it straight out of the jar) - great for when you want something with pretty little vanilla bean flecks in it w/o having to buy actual vanilla beans (which can be over $8 a piece!

Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract - EXCELLENT

Heaven in a bottle for bakers
THIS IS AHHHHMAZING!!!! I love the vanilla!!! Like previous reviews I love the flecks of vanilla bean in it. And it truly makes anything I bake taste like a slice of heaven. I will NEVER use another vanilla extract after using this. And neither will you. If you are a true baker you will want this.

The Best Vanilla!
Occasionally I see a taste test that declares regular supermarket vanilla tastes just as good as expensive vanilla. I don't believe them. This vanilla makes a difference in all my baking. It's worth the price.

Love it!
Although I really enjoy using this in all manner of things, the only negative is the price. It is a high-priced item.

The flavor is wonderful in cookies, breads, and other things.

Probably the Best Vanilla Available
I have been cooking for a very long time, and the vanilla extract you get at the grocery store just does not have the flavor you need when cooking or baking. This vanilla smells like vanilla should. Worth the money.

I have ordered the paste for several years. It is so good in whatever you cook that calls for vanilla. Whether you choose the paste or the extract, this is way better than what you buy at the grocery store.
Patsy M on Jan 7, 2018
The 8-oz size of vanilla compared to the supermarket 2-oz size is a better buy. I do a lot of baking and Madagascar extract is about the best you can buy.
Alice C on Dec 23, 2017
Used it before, and like this product. We'd order the Vanilla paste if you still carried it.

What are the ingredients? Does it contain sugar?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Ingredients: Water, Alcohol (35%), Sugar, Vanilla Bean Extractive
Is this extract gluten free?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The ingredients listed on the label are "water, alcohol (35%), sugar, vanilla bean extractives." I checked two websites specializing in dietary issues, and both sites say that pure vanilla extract is gluten-free.
why does it have alcohol?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Alcohol extracts the flavor from the vanilla beans and makes vanilla extract possible. By federal law, extracts must contain 35% alcohol. Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon pure vanilla extract does NOT contain bourbon. The "Bourbon" in the name refers to the Bourbon kings of France, who ruled Reunion island where vanilla was grown.
Can you add this extract to cakes or is it too thick?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s not thick. Highly recommended to use this extract over any other kind in cakes, cupcakes, bakery, etc.
Does the aroma smell of the Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract diminishes before the expiration date? Do we keep this vanilla extract in the fridge or in room temperature??? I do have 2 bottles, the aroma smell is not there anymore. Should I still keep on using them??
J Chiu on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I never noticed that with my vanilla, used to buy big bottles 32 oz. at most and stayed fresh and lasted for couple of years. It has to do you on how you store them.. I kept them at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Keep them in a cool dry place. After using, keep the bottle tightly sealed to keep the aroma fresh.
