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 Pastes are made using entire vanilla beans ground finely for a robust and full-bodied flavor. They are more heat tolerant and three times as potent as a traditional single-fold vanilla extracts. Our pastes disperse easily and are ideal for wet applications, batters, doughs and whenever flavor is needed instantly without time for infusion. We offer our Whole Vanilla Bean Pastes from three origins: Madagascar, Tahiti and Papua New Guinea.
More to savor and less to ship!
