World’s finest vanilla—accept no substitutes.

Description

Produced from premium, hand-selected beans cultivated in Madagascar, this vanilla extract from Neilsen-Massey adds incredible depth of flavor to everything from baked goods to savory dishes.

Neilsen-Massey’s proprietary cold extraction process preserves the more than 250 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 connoisseurs know all too well that prices have surged in the past year. Due to a cyclone that destroyed crops in Madagascar paired with an increasing demand for natural products, it’s unlikely that vanilla prices will drop anytime soon.

The good news is that Nielsen-Massey has built solid, long-term supplier relationships that provide access to the world’s highest-quality beans. This allows them to continue delivering the 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.

The BEST!!!
I will never buy another vanilla again! I thought my recipes couldn't get any better but boy was I wrong! Has a perfect vanilla taste, I just keep trying to find recipe after recipe so I can use it constantly! I've been recommending it to everyone.

Why did you choose this?
Sur La Table Store
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.

Used it before, and like this product. We'd order the Vanilla paste if you still carried it.

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.

Because my Aunt Phyllis used mine when she came to visit me and could taste the difference - in a very good way - to the vanilla she had been using.

Madagascar beans are the best sourced beans for vanilla, and Sur La Table always has quality products I can count on.

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.
