Vanilla is harvested from the seed-containing pods of the tropical orchid. Unlike white sugar—one of the food ingredients nutritionists try to avoid—vanilla is not heavily processed or chemically refined. And it won’t spike your blood sugar levels because there isn’t any sugar in it. Vanilla is often used in sweet treats, even though vanilla itself is not sweet. It can be used to flavour smoothies, coffee, oatmeal, and plain yogurt.
Made from vanilla beans, vanilla powder has a more intense vanilla flavor than vanilla extract and can be used not only in baking recipes but as a natural sweetener. The purest form of vanilla powder comes from vanilla beans. The beans are dehydrated and finely ground.Shop now
