love this company. my go to store for chocolate supply. their cocoa barry and callebaut are the cheapest in canada so far from what i found. i hope they would never increase the price. they are a litt...le bit lacking in equipment and tools, but they have a wide range of ingredients, love it! their shipping is pretty cheap as well compared to other online stores, that $7 flat shipping saves me a lot as i usually buy a lot of chocolates, and they ship pretty fast as well See More

Always a good experience. If there is any issue I get a personal phone call to fix it all up. I love it, feels like they care about their customers. And the products are A+++.

My package went missing. Customer service/Michelle argued with me about it. My order was reshipped - Americolor box - missing the gold sheen. Not a shocker given the experience leading up to finally r...eceiving it. Very poor. See More

I love this store. Truly. I've ordered from them probably half a dozen times. Shipping is always insanely fast. The customer service is quick and so friendly. And their selection of products is great.... I'm hooked on the origine chocolates from Cocoa Berry and I just eat them from the bag as a snack. They also have a huge selection of Loranne flavourings that are perfect for candy-making. I cannot recommend them highly enough. See More

I ordered 11lbs worth of chocolate, some molds and vanilla on Thursday, Oct 16. I got the shipping confirmation within 20 minutes and it is sitting on my desk right now.

I am always blown away by th...eir speed and the quality of the supplies that I get from Vanilla Food Company, I always recommend it to anyone I meet who has a passion for making dessert (And a few people buying those 3 vanilla pods for $8 tubes at the supermarket)

Being able to have such a great experience is always a treat, but I love the fact that I am supporting a Canadian company makes it all the better! And who is to argue with the $7 flat rate shipping? I sure can't!

I can't wait to make my next order!

9 Times When You Should Use Ground Vanilla Powder Instead of Vanilla Extract

When you want to avoid alcohol - ground vanilla powder is an excellent vanilla product for those who want to avoid alcohol. The FDA stipulates that vanilla extract must contain 35% alcohol. So if you don't want to consume alcohol, substitute vanilla extract for ground vanilla powder just by using half the quantity of required vanilla extract.

When you choose to live a Paleo lifestyle - ground vanilla... is also a big hit with Paleo, raw food and vegan communities as it is simply ground vanilla beans – and nothing else. No sugar, corn starch, gums, fillers or synthetic ingredients

When you're cooking something at a high heat or for a long time - since extract contains alcohol, when cooking at high heat or for long time duration extract loses its potency due to evaporation so if you're wanting a great vanilla flavour in that rice pudding or tapioca, give the ground vanilla a try.

When you have a colour sensitive recipe – there are a number of colour free vanilla products on the market, but if you have a look at what's in it, there is no real vanilla at all. It's a synthetic colourless concoction which tastes a bit like vanilla. Real vanilla extract, which of course is always brown, can taint the colour of food however. This is a problem if you're aiming for wedding-white vanilla icing. A better alternative to imitation colourless vanilla, however, is ground vanilla which, since it isn't a liquid, won't colour icing the same way extract or paste might.

When your mix is temperamental – For those of you who are talented enough to whip up a batch of macaroons or something equally temperamental, you'll know that a small amount of added liquid can make all the difference between success and spectacular failure, in these cases ground vanilla powder is an excellent choice.

When you want to flavour your coffee naturally – most flavoured coffees use artificial synthetic flavours. For the best vanilla coffee add a teaspoon of dried vanilla powder to your ground coffee before brewing.

When you're making vanilla infused goodies - such as making your own vanilla sugar or vanilla salt. Use about a quarter of a teaspoon of ground vanilla powder per cup of salt or sugar and mix thoroughly. Store in glass jars with the lid on tight.

When you're making dry mixes - to make your own dried oatmeal packets, pancake mixes or protein shakes to be made up later ground powder is an absolute must. Add it in to the dry mix and you've got all the vanilla flavour you want without any liquid.

When something just needs a sprinkle of vanilla on top –Ground vanilla powder is a perfect consistency for sprinkling, just as you might dust ground cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger to finish off a dish, try a sprinkle of ground vanilla powder on waffles, yogurt, fruit, protein shakes or smoothies.

BACK IN STOCK - Pure Ground Vanilla Beans - Madagascar

Many of our customers are aware of the world wide vanilla bean shortage - it is currently very challenging to obtain any quality vanilla beans or ground vanilla beans. But due to our strong relationship with our suppliers, we were able to obtain a shipment of the popular Madagascar ground vanilla bean powder. This is the optimal time to purchase for your upcoming holiday season since we do not anticipate in receiving mor...e in the near future. Prices may continue to climb in the near future due to the worsen shortage.…/grndvan.htm

A bottle of quality vanilla extract is a pantry staple of all good home bakers - but a lesser known gem that can be a great alternative, is ground vanilla bean powder.

Vanilla bean powder is simply vanilla beans, dried to zero percent humidity and ground into a fine powder. There are some powders on the market that have been sweetened with powdered sugar or filled out with synthetic fillers, but true vanilla powder we carry is made from vanilla beans and nothing more.

Vanilla powder gives a really concentrated flavour, so if you're substituting powder for beans, extract or paste in recipes, use ½ teaspoon of ground powder for 1 bean, or ½ teaspoon of ground powder for every teaspoon of extract or paste.

Since vanilla powder is drier than extract and void of alcohol, there are some situations where vanilla powder can be an excellent choice for vanilla flavour.
