Premium Ground Vanilla Beans | Grade B Vanilla Bean Powder | Madagascar Vanilla
Premium Ground Vanilla Beans from Madagascar
Our premium vanilla bean powder is made from 100% pure ground vanilla beans from Madagascar. Unlike other versions of vanilla powder, which often contain maltodextrin, premium ground vanilla beans are the only ingredient in our vanilla powder. It is visibly lighter in color than our gourmet vanilla bean powder, composed of grade b black vanilla planifolia with splits and cuts, but is a perfect substitute for vanilla extract.
Each bean for this grade of vanilla powder has been specifically chosen for its intense flavor and rich aromatic properties. The vanilla beans used to make our premium ground vanilla beans are well-cured and conditioned before further drying, giving them a 7-10 percent moisture content, which lends well to grinding the beans into a powder form.
Ground vanilla beans can be used to add deep flavor and visual appeal to ice cream, baked goods, custard, and more. We think this Premium Vanilla Powder helps to create exceptionally delicious Scones, cookies, and other baked goods. Vanilla Power is great when substituted in recipes where Vanilla extract or Vanilla paste is used but without the added sugar, alcohol, or glycerine (which are found in vanilla extract more often than not), plus it adds even more flavor and visual appeal!
Our premium ground vanilla beans from Madagascar meet strict standards:
- Premium vanilla powder is made from ground Madagascar vanilla beans ground to an extra fine, 300 microns.
- Pure, grade B vanilla powder contains no added sugars or preservatives.
- Whole ground Vanilla beans from Madagascar and nothing more are the contents of our vanilla powder.
- Madagascar vanilla powder is suitable for applications that call for vanilla extract but with the added effect of vanilla specks and a beautiful flavor
- Vanilla powder adds a light and flavorful vanilla essence to many recipes when bloomed or steeped.
- As with all of our ingredients, Premium Madagascar Vanilla Powder is all natural, gluten-free, kosher, and non-GMO.
- Grade B Vanilla Powder is made from vanilla pods that are 14 cm or less in length, which often have splits and cuts. These beans are hand pollinated, organically grown, harvested when ripe, then dried, milled, and finely ground for an exceptional product.
Some tips on how to use vanilla powder:
Substitute one teaspoon vanilla powder for one teaspoon vanilla extract for a richer, deeper flavor. Vanilla bean powder is a superior substitute for vanilla extract and can also replace vanilla beans or vanilla paste, in virtually any recipe. For best results, we recommend 'blooming' your vanilla powder by slightly heating in it in a carrier liquid like cream or milk prior to adding to your recipe. Try our premium ground vanilla bean powder in your custards, scones and other baked goods for a truly delectable treat.
Best ground vanilla!
I use this as an ingredient in an energy bar...best vanilla I’ve used to date!

Tip for using spent vanilla pod:
A great use for leftover vanilla bean pods is to turn them into vanilla sugar. This can be done a two ways:
- Cut the vanilla bean pods into one inch pieces (about 2-3 pods to 2 cups of granulated sugar). Seal in an airtight jar and allow to sit 1-2 weeks. Use normally as you would plain, granulated sugar.
- The second method is to dry the vanilla bean pods using a food dyhdrator or by setting your oven on low and allowing the vanilla bean pods to dry out. Once dry, break the beans and place in a coffee mill or spice grinder (if you've used the coffee mill to grind coffee, make sure you clean it well before grinding the vanilla). Grind until desired consistency. This adds a nice visual touch to your vanilla sugar to go with the sweet delicate flavor.
