This one is another incredible Planifolia Vanilla - less common though - coming from Thaïland with exceptional aromatic qualities, high vanillin content and diamonds shaped crystals*.


The Thaïland Planifolia Vanilla pods are rich in flavours, creamy, fruity and sweet, and are a perfect addition to sorbets and ice cream, custards, pastries, as well as cold salty appetizers and seafood. A subtle sweetness with hints of floral undertones, also contribute to the complexity of the intensely aromatic profile. It's scent is recognizable by alluring, warm, sweet and strong vanilla notes and subtle hints of spices and floral undertones adding depth to the overall aromatic profile.


With its combination of rich flavours, captivating aromas and powerful scents, these crystallised Vanilla pods are another gem in culinary delight as in fragrances.


* Vanillin crystals is the natural end expression of the benzenoid crystal that matures inside the pod. Within properly cured vanilla pods vanillin functions as an important conservative, and its content should be high enough before curing and refining in order to stimulate natural immune resistance to mold and create delicious dark fragrant vanilla smell and flavours. Vanillin crystals are a natural concentrate and a sign of excellent quality of the vanilla pods.


You can recognise them as they shine in the light and look like white spines or literally shiny sharp glass-like tiny “diamonds” of vanilla, such as the THC residue on excellent marijuana plants.


When vanilla pods have this high vanillin content they can be kept for years under excellent storage condition, in glass tubes or glass jars well protected from light. Crystalline beans also have an amazing and powerful smell and tend to dry out over time so the smell and flavor packs into the plant matter but does not diffuse aromatically through the air without interaction or extraction. The flavor literally soaks deep into the skin and seeds and retains inside the pod.
