Vanilla Powder Production
The Grade A non-spent variety is made from fresh vanilla pods that have been dried in our rotary drum dryer, then cut into small pieces before being ground into a fine powder.
The Grade A Blend also know as Vanilla Sugar is made from blending Grade A non-spent vanilla powder with brown sugar powder to produce a very pleasant tasting vanilla product.
The Grade B spent variety is made from vanilla pods that has been used for making vanilla extract and has a delicate vanilla aroma and flavour that is less intense than the non-spent variety.
The ground vanilla powder is produced from a blend of Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla pods that have been sourced from various vanilla plantations in regions such as Madagascar, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

They have also been cultivated organically without the use of chemicals or artificial fertilisers. Although the vanilla pods used for producing our vanilla powder are not officially certified organic, the vanilla pods have been cultivated using organic methods.
