Everything at a glance Bourbon vanilla powder

Also known to be the queen of spices; already appreciated by the Aztecs; is a climbing orchid with shiny leaves, and brings its unmistakable taste to sweet and savoury recipes: ladies and gentlemen, here comes vanilla! Our ground Bourbon vanilla for you, which can be used for various dishes and stored for a long time - without any added flavourings or preservatives. 

How the Bourbon vanilla powder is made

Vanilla is one of the most expensive spices. This is because its production is a rather complex process. Bourbon vanilla grows only on the islands of Madagascar, the Comoros, La Réunion, the Seychelles and Mauritius - also known as Bourbon islands. In these areas vanilla grows under extremely tough conditions. In its region of origin, Central America, the plants are pollinated by hummingbirds. In Madagascar, where the KoRo Bourbon vanilla is from, those little natural helpers are missing, which is why the vanilla plants are gently pollinated by hand by the farmers. Yes right - the vanilla farmer is going with a bamboo stick from flower to flower to spread the pollen. After harvesting the vanilla beans are carefully selected and fermented. By this the pods get their typical black-brown colour.

KoRo's ground Bourbon vanilla

Our ground Bourbon vanilla can be used directly - whether for baking, for refining pastries or desserts such as vanilla pudding, ice cream or cookies. Even though many associate vanilla with sweet creations, pure vanilla doesn't taste sweet itself. However, to get the typical sweet aroma, you don't necessarily need to add sugar as you can also use xylitol or erythritol

From experts to experts

In 2017, over 8 million tons of vanilla were produced worldwide, 95% of which was Bourbon vanilla. Madagascar leads the global production with around 3.2 million tons a year. The optimal planting time for vanilla orchids is between September and November. After three years, the vanilla orchids will bloom for the first time, which will then be pollinated by hand. Vanilla farmers must always be on the lookout for new flowers, because they only bloom for one day; if there is no pollination within 24 hours, the flowers will bloom and no capsule fruit will be produced.
