What is it?

Few people know where vanilla comes from other than small dark bottles from grocery stores.

Vanilla comes from a herbaceous vine that belongs to the Orchids family. It is the only orchid used for industrial food production.

The vanilla plant, which can grow up to 30 feet long, bears trumpet-shaped flowers that turn into pods. These pods often referred to as beans, have a pleasant fragrance. Vanilla beans have its roots in Mesoamerica and it was the Mayans who first utilised it to flavour chocolate drinks. This delicious bean started spreading to tropical regions, thanks to European explorers who brought it there.

By the mid-19th century, Mexico became the main producer of vanilla. But then, the French discovered a way on how to pollinate vanilla flowers by hand. This led to bigger vanilla plantations now known as Ile de Bourbon which eventually led to Bourbon vanilla.

Today, there are three major cultivars of vanilla beans: Bourbon vanilla, Tahitian vanilla, and Mexican vanilla. Bourbon vanilla is produced in Bourbon Island in Madagascar, the top producers of vanilla today. It has a smooth, strong, full and assertive flavor.

Tahitian vanilla has a more subtle flavour with a floral hint. Mexican vanilla (real pure Mexican vanilla, not the synthetic ones) has a sweet yet spicy aroma.
