Vanilla Bean Supplier: The Importance of Vanilla in the Food and Beverage Industry

Premium Indonesia Vanilla Beans Drying Process

You need a reliable vanilla bean supplier by your side if you have a business related to vanilla usage or processing. Vanilla extracts are often underestimated by those who don’t understand their crucial functions and role, and the business itself can make millions if you do it right. Most people may think that the extracts are only used in baked goods, while in reality, their usage is quite extensive. The food and beverage industry is always in need of good vanilla extract quality. So, how important the bean is? And which one would be perfect for your business?

In-Depth Knowledge about Vanilla Bean

You probably think that you can always get the bean, or the extract, from any place that you like. But not all places provide the beans, especially the great quality types. You see, vanilla comes from the orchid plant’s fruit. Yes, it’s a fruit coming as a bean pod in a dark brown hue. The pod itself is skinny and long. Not every place is perfect to grow the bean as it thrives best in tropical climates, such as Tongo, Uganda, Comoro, Mexico, Mauritius, Indonesia, and Tahiti.The biggest producer of the bean is Madagascar, supplying three-fourths of the supply in the world, while the second place belongs to Indonesia. 

Whereas people believe that the extracts are only used for baked goods, they are used to add tasty (vanilla) flavors to drinks, ice creams, syrups, frosting, sauce, and different kinds of desserts. As it was mentioned before, the food and beverage industry depends heavily on extracts to deliver tasty flavors to things people consume. Not every supplier pays good attention to proper (and hygienic) processing. Many don’t even care about quality control. This is one of the main reasons why you should pick only reliable suppliers that can provide good, even high-quality beans. And if you want to maintain quality and flavor, you need to be sure that these suppliers adhere to the regulations strictly.

What Are the Uses?

The beans are commonly processed and made into extracts, and they are often included in baked goods or even beverage recipes. Pure extracts are made from real (vanilla) beans while vanilla extract imitation only uses the artificial flavoring of the vanillin.

The entire vanilla beans (or the seeds) are commonly used in recipes. They will add intense flavor as well as texture. The tiny seeds can affect the texture of the baked goods while the color can affect the visual appeal of the products, whether they are foods or beverages. It’s quite common to use whole beans, so the natural flavor can be infused into syrups, liquors, and sugars.

The Best Vanilla Extracts

There are two contributing factors that can determine whether the extract is good or not. Quality would be the first (contributing) factor. It depends on the temperature, alcohol grade being used, vanilla bean grade, quantity, alcohol type, and also the extraction’s temperature and length. It takes serious and true science to create the premium extract.

Second, the bean’s type will also play an important role. As it was mentioned before, each bean has its own unique and one-of-a-kind characteristics. For instance, Madagascar vanilla is creamy and rich, while Mexican vanilla is dark and bold, with a tinge of smoky tones. Indonesian vanilla is well-balanced and mild, while Tonga vanilla is earthy, with a bit of raisin and fig taste.

The Proper Storage

The best bean should be pliable, fresh, and somewhat oily instead of being brittle and dried up. If you see any dry beans, it means that they have lost a lot of moisture. It also means that their quality is lacking. If you are interested in buying the beans, they should be shipped in glass (vial) or vacuum-sealed packages. The vacuum packages will preserve the smell and freshness. If you don’t want to use the beans right away, don’t open the packages. If you see any brownish liquid in your vacuum-sealed packages, no need to worry. It’s the oil that may be squeezed from the beans during the sealing process. Remove the beans from the vacuum package after 6 months or in 3 to 4 months from the glass vial.

To properly store the beans, wrap them in plastic wrap or wax paper, and then keep them in an airtight container. It can be glass or plastic, but if you choose the latter, make sure that it’s the food-grade type. Don’t forget to squeeze the air as much as possible (from the container) so the beans won’t dry out. 

Other ways to properly keep your beans: Don’t keep them in the refrigerator. Keep it in a dark and cool place, like the basement or pantry. Make sure that you use an airtight container. Don’t forget to air the beans regularly. Just remove them from the container for 10 to 15 minutes. Do this once in several weeks to promote better air circulation.
