Why Nielsen-Massey VanillasVanilla's OriginsHistoryWhich VanillaFun Facts

At Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, we've been crafting vanilla products for over a century, so we understand that vanilla tastes best when its natural essence is allowed to shine. That's why in producing our vanilla extracts, we use a proprietary cold extraction process instead of heat extraction.

This process gently extracts vanilla's essential oils, preserving the more than 300 distinctive flavor compounds present in the beans. By protecting our vanilla from heat, we ensure that even its subtlest flavors survive extraction. Cold extraction is a more delicate, longer process that takes weeks instead of days, but we care too much about producing the finest flavor to risk losing any of the complexity and robustness of the original bean.

Our passion further extends to the bean itself. We examine all our vanilla–bundle by bundle, bean by bean–to ensure each bean meets our high standards. Be assured, if the bean is not premium quality, we will not use it.

We've also made the very specific choice to only use beans from the finest growing regions: Madagascar, Mexico and Tahiti. And to showcase the unique flavor profiles of vanillas grown in different regions, we offer origin specific vanilla extracts from Madagascar, Mexico and Tahiti.

Beyond our extracts, you'll find this same level of commitment and attention to detail prevalent in the production of our vanilla beans, sugars, powders and pastes. Additionally, all our products are Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free, GMO-Free and Kosher, and we also have a line of Organic vanillas.

As a third-generation family company, there's a certain pride we feel in crafting our premium vanilla products. From a quality standpoint, this means that every batch of vanilla extract, paste, sugar and powder is thoroughly tested to make sure it lives up to our very high standards.
