Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract Review

At Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, we have been crafting the world's finest vanillas and flavors since 1907. Founded by Richard Massey, who later partnered with Chatfield Nielsen, Sr, our company is still a family-owned operation run by the third generation of Nielsens: CEO Craig Nielsen, COO Matt Nielsen and Chief Culinary Officer, Director-International Beth Nielsen. Having grown up with the company and amidst the rich aroma of vanilla, they've spent their entire lives learning, studying and researching the best methods to produce pure flavors as well as how to achieve the best results in recipes and applications.

Having branched out from our humble origins in Sterling, Illinois our company now possesses state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at its headquarters in Waukegan, Illinois, USA and its plant in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. Our products can be found throughout North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand and are enjoyed by restaurant and bakery chefs, manufacturers of premium foods, gourmet food shops and grocers and discriminating home consumers looking to enhance their fine cooking and baking.

Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract

Taking premium, hand-selected beans cultivated on the Bourbon Island of Madagascar, we use our proprietary cold extraction process to gently draw out and preserve the vanilla's over 300 flavor compounds. The result is a sweet, creamy, mellow flavor with velvety after-tones, perfect for cooking and baking both sweet and savory dishes. An exceptional "all-purpose" vanilla.

One tablespoon of vanilla extract is equivalent to one vanilla bean.

Available in quarts (6 to a case) and gallons (4 to a case). This product is Kosher and Gluten-Free Certified as well as All-Natural, Allergen-Free and GMO-Free.

Ingredients: Water, Alcohol (35%), Sugar, Vanilla Bean Extractives.
