Pure Mexican Vanilla is all natural and produced in Mexico using only the highest grade, single source Mexican vanilla beans. This unblended pure extract is wonderfully bold and flavorful.
We get lots of questions about the difference between Pure and Traditional Mexican Vanilla. In order for an extract to be labeled "Pure," per FDA guidelines, it must contain 35% alcohol. Vanilla beans are percolated in alcohol and the result is a strong extract. Pure Extracts are best for baking, as the alcohol helps the flavor hold at high heats.
In contrast, Traditional Vanilla Extract contains 10% alcohol and the addition of vanillin. Vanillin helps hold the flavor and gives Traditional vanilla a very rich, smooth essence. Traditional Mexican Vanilla is best for non-baked items like frostings and ice cream. Store owner Anne recalls making homemade churned ice cream and using Traditional Mexican Vanilla.
