Extraction Grade Vanilla Beans from Tahiti

Grade B Vanilla is an ideal choice for making homemade vanilla extract and other recipes requiring lengthy infusion times. Think beyond vanilla extract from scratch and purpose your extraction grade vanilla Tahitensis for brewing beer or making wine. Vanilla Tahitensis is also the preferred choice for contributing fragrance, adding a floral aroma to soaps, perfumes, shampoos, conditioners, and other items without overpowering the senses. 

Our Grade B vanilla beans from Tahiti are typically 14 cm or less, not uniform in length, and are sold by the ounce. As is the case with all extraction grade vanilla, our Tahitian vanilla for making extract and more contain cosmetic blemishes, are sometimes split or cracked, or scared. While they are not perfect in appearance, these Grade B vanilla beans are produced in the islands of Tahiti and are nothing short of remarkable. They are produced on the same farm as our grade A vanilla beans, but simply do not fit into stringent gourmet classification.

Extraction grade Tahitian vanilla beans are soft and pliable but better utilized by chopping to make vanilla extract. This method of chopping the vanilla beans is less time consuming and results in a superior vanilla extract. The standard ratio for making single fold vanilla extract with any vanilla bean is .83 ounces of vanilla to every one cup solvent like vodka, bourbon, brandy, or rum; a food-grade vegetable glycerin can also be used for a nonalcoholic version of vanilla extract.  We personally find vegetable glycerin to be overly sweet but it is a great alternative for those with gluten allergies or just an aversion to alcohol and still wish to enjoy cooking with vanilla extract.  For step-by-step instructions on making a homemade vanilla extract, check out this article or this video.

Products are packaged safely and nicely, quality of beans is excellent, the aroma is incredible when you open the box, and they arrive quickly. This was a reorder, but only the second of many orders to come!

Extract grad vanilla beans

Making vanilla and so far so good. The beans were fairly moist, wide enough to split and have a great fragrance. Some were smaller but, there were also 29 beans so I think it evened out. Three days into the process, the vodka has a nice amber color. Will send a final review after using the finished product!

Vanilla Beans

Making homemade vanilla. Never bought vanilla beans before so did not know what to expect. A little disappointed when I saw what I got for 72.00 dollars. Many small beans mixed in with others but they smelled really good. Just wish I could have had more of the large ones.


Real Tahitensis from Tahiti

I have been buying vanilla beans a long time. I like to try different vanilla beans grown in different locations. These are true vanilla beans from Tahiti. They are very soft and flat and have a light vanilla scent with stronger floral and black cherry aromas. They are very different from Mexican or Madagascar beans but well worth a try. I like them very much in frostings where they wont be heated so the full flavor shines through. I was very happy to find the Tahiti extract beans at such a reasonable price. The Tahiti beans are as described smaller sizes and some blemishes which is ok for making extract The Tahiti beans were very moist and oily (had a nice healthy shine) and soft which I think is a characteristic vanilla from Thaiti. I was very happy to find SLO Food Group I have been looking for a good place to buy quality vanilla beans at reasonable prices and I believe I have found it here.
