I've used different vanilla extracts and different vanilla pastes from respected vanilla companies.
Tahitian Gold Company has the thickest of pastes I've yet to use, which makes for more vanilla flavor. The flavor is as good as any that one can find, and the customer service is above and beyond what most get elsewhere.
It's been a pleasure all around.
Our Whole Vanilla Bean Paste is a 3-fold strength, rich combination of Ground Vanilla Beans and Pure Vanilla Extract.
It is richer in flavor and more heat tolerant than pure vanilla extract. This results in more value to you—more to savor and less expensive to ship.
It disperses easily and is ideal for sweet and savory sauces, baked goods, ice cream, smoothies, frozen desserts, beverages and cocktails.
We offer our Whole Vanilla Bean Paste in both flavor profiles: Tahitian (Vanilla tahitensis) and Bourbon vanilla (Vanilla planifolia).
We are delighted to be introducing at the Winter Fancy Food Show 2020 our 3-Bean Blend—a deep and rich Madagascar-dominant vanilla bean paste with a unique flavor profile created by combining our ground vanilla beans from Madagascar, Tahiti and Papua New Guinea.
