  • Some of the World's Best Bourbon Vanilla: Ugandan Vanilla Beans

    Bourbon vanilla beans from Uganda are some of the finest of Vanilla Planifolia.  Chef's and vanilla purists have begun to recognize the superior quality of these Grade A Vanilla Beans. They are earthy, bold, extremely flavorful and have an aroma reminiscent of figs, milk chocolate, and raisins with warm rich, buttery undertones.  Ugandan vanilla beans produce a higher-than-average vanillin content, making them perfect for rich desserts, chocolate truffles, or vanilla extract. We are obsessed with these vanilla beans not only because of the vastness of their flavor but also because of our passion for supporting the community and family in Uganda that grow, cure and process these magnificent, gourmet vanilla beans.

  • What makes Ugandan Vanilla Beans stand out?

    • Each vanilla bean from Uganda is approximately 15+ cm in length.
    • Ugandan vanilla lends itself well to extracts, sugars, gelatos, and pastries.
    • The average number of Grade A vanilla beans per pound is between 130 and 160. 
    • Vanilla in Uganda is produced twice a year, so our product always incredibly fresh.
    • Our beans are always all natural, gluten-free, kosher, and non-GMO.
    • Add another level of depth to your recipes when you use both Ugandan vanilla Beans and Sri Lankan Cloves in the same recipe.

*always store vanilla beans in an airtight container in a cool and dark place

On finding the best price/quantity

If you are like me and you think that bulk ordering makes sense, on these beans I'd go with the packages of 10. I thought that surely the 4 oz package would be a good deal. However, it only contained 24 beans. Thus, you are much better off ordering packages of 10 beans (which are a good price), than you are ordering the 4 oz package, and presumably the 8 oz package. Just FYI. The beans themselves smell wonderful and appeared plump.

Hi Julie, thanks for you review and feedback. Please note that vanilla is an agricultural product that varies in size, shape and weight. It is also an agricultural commodity that is sold by weight only. It is a false assumption to determine the value based on the count for any weighted variation. Like other agricultal products, size and shapes can vary. We kindly recommend that any customer that is looking for a certain number of beans to purchase by the count and count only. This will ensure you receive exact amount of vanilla beans your are looking for. We thank you for your business and do hope you enjoy. Warm Regards, Slofoodgroup Team


Delightful aroma, abundant seeds

Plantifolia Uganda is packed with flavor and rich in seeds, making for an aroma that warms the entire kitchen. SLO FOOD Group is wonderful to work with, is happy to share their knowledge of the vanilla bean industry, and delivery is prompt. Thanks so much!


Uganda Vanilla Beans

I am very happy to have found SLO FOOD GROUP they have a very nice selection of vanilla and they are wonderful to do business with. The Uganda Vanilla beans I received were vacuum packed then put in a bubble lined envelope they shipped very fast. I like that I was kept informed of the progress of my order all along the way. The Uganda beans were moist and oily, and have a wonderful vanilla aroma and the Uganda beans were full of vanilla seeds.
