Sumatra Indonesian Ground Vanilla Bean powders are of the highest quality and have a rich, dark aroma. 

VanillaPura's vanilla bean powders are 100% vanilla bean with no added sweeteners or fillers. This is not the spray-dried vanilla powder from extract that is heated and includes silica. This is the real-deal ground vanilla bean with nothing but the entire vanilla pod ground  and then passed through a fine sieve to provide you with an easy-to-use fine ground vanilla bean powder. 

Many people like to substitute vanilla powder for vanilla extract in many recipes, when they are looking to add more of the beautiful vanilla speckles to the recipe, or when they are looking to avoid the use of alcohol in their cooking. For best results, many pastry chefs will recommend "blooming" your ground vanilla powder by adding it to a carrier liquid like cream or milk and heating it before use. 


This particular vanilla bean powder originates from the Sumatra region, which is one of the western most regions of Indonesia, near India, Sri Lanka and an ocean (the Indian Ocean) away from Madagascar. It is the largest island in Indonesia and the 6th largest island in the world. While most Indonesian coffee is grown in Sumatra including Arabica coffee, vanilla beans are relatively new and much more rare, making this vanilla bean powder difficult to obtain. 


When you first open a pouch of Sumatra Indonesian vanilla bean powder, your nose will be met with floral notes that are usually typical with tahitensis vanilla beans, though these are planifolia beans like Madagascar and Mexican. Behind the floral scent you will notice ripe plumbs, raisins and bold, earthy and dark vanilla notes. As you bring the powder closer to your nose, the strong, earthy vanilla aroma becomes more pronounced with soft hints of mocha. 

Sumatra Indonesian vanilla bean powder is ideal for vanilla sugars, homemade ice creams and other frosting and cream applications. 

VanillaPura vanilla bean powders are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place. 

This is a co-op product page for vanilla bean co-op members. Co-op orders are combined with other customer orders and may have a lead time of 4-8 weeks. The result is the lowest priced, gourmet vanilla beans anywhere. "Wait a little, and save a lot!" 

On average, there are 6-10 beans/oz depending on the moisture content of the specific batch of vanilla beans. There can be as few as 5 beans or as many as 20 beans. Pricing reflects current market conditions and will be updated as market prices change.
