Nothing like finding the perfect trimmings for the holidays. I do a considerable amount of baking and I like to find the best things to go in my body. I am filling it full of sugar, but it does not mean I have to fill it full of junk. Meaning additional additives. I like to have as few ingredients in things I buy as possible. It makes my baking simple and actually what I mean to put in my body.
Nielsen-Massey is a family own company, has been since 1907. The third generation currently runs the company. They strive to have things as best quality as possible, and that is what I simply love about them. They promise the finest quality and it really is and was proved to me when I tried their Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract.
The smell alone is exquisite and I love the taste in my baking! I doubt I could ever love another vanilla as much as I love this one. Fairtrade and organic, plus there are a total of 3 ingredients in this extract: Water, Organic Alcohol (35%), Organic Vanilla Bean Extractives.
I recently found out I can not have gluten and I have to constantly look at every ingredient in everything and this is certified gluten free and that is also because it is a pure vanilla extract. It is the imitation you have to watch out for the gluten, it is in their coloring. So if you are going gluten free or can not have gluten free, stay away from the imitation!
Fairtrade Canada, a national, nonprofit Fairtrade certification organization and member of Fairtrade International, is responsible for certifying the beans we use. Fairtrade certified vanilla ensures that small-scale farmers in developing countries receive a fair price and use sustainable farming practices, stabilizing vanilla-producing communities and protecting the environment. It also ensures a consistent supply of ingredients to customers. Fairtrade certified vanilla is grown in the shade, integrated with other crops, which in turn helps protect against erosion and deforestation.
When preparing to bake for the holidays, go for Nielsen-Massey Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. It is great for farmers, organic and the best option for your baking. You can notice the difference from imitation and other vanilla extracts. I will be keeping this as a staple when I am baking for the holidays.
