Real Tahitian vanilla bean flavor that is easy to use and does not sacrifice on quality. Our vanilla from Tahiti has been freeze dried and ground to preserve as much pure vanilla flavor as possible. Made from top quality vanilla beans that are grown and harvested in Tahiti and ground onsite in our US based facility, Slofoodgroup's Tahitian vanilla bean powder is perfect for ice cream, gelato, custards, chocolates and more.
To make our whole ground Tahitian vanilla we freeze the vanilla pods in small batches and grind to a fine powder at the very last minute so no flavor is lost before reaching you. We do this to ensure exceptional quality vanilla flavor that helps elevate your favorite recipes saving you the time and the hassle of scraping vanilla pods.
The freeze drying of vanilla beans is done through a process knowns as lyophilisation or cryodesiccation in which vanilla beans are chopped into small pieces and frozen to temperatures below zero. Once subzero temperature is achieved, the pressure in the chamber is lowered and the ice is removed by the process of sublimation. This is the same exact process as how our açaí powder is made. Freeze drying is considered superior to traditional methods of drying. The process only removes the moisture of the vanilla beans and does not damage or remove any of the flavor. The result is pure ground vanilla beans that are rich, flavorful and aromatic. Freeze dried vanilla bean powder is just as good or better than using fresh vanilla pods at home.
