your Mexican Vanilla contain Coumarin?
No. The FDA banned Coumarin in food products quite a few
years ago which wiped out most of our competition in a hurry.
As far as we know, there are only three companies allowed
to export their vanilla from Mexico as a result. Coumarin
is a blood thinner used in rat poisons that causes liver
damage. That's one of the reasons you shouldn't buy your
cheap vanilla just across the border.
is the shelf life of Mexican Vanilla?
reasons, we tell people 2 years... but we know of one customer
who had hers for 7 years!
% of alcohol is in your Mexican Vanilla?
inspect the inner core of the vanilla bean you will discover
small crystals that form on the inner layer of the pod.
Those crystals contain much of the scent of the vanilla
bean. It's true that a synthetic scent has been introduced
into the Mexican market in recent years but that is not
found in our Pure Mexican Vanilla.
is the difference between Clear and Dark Vanilla?
;-) Actually, the vanilla beans do not shed much color at
all. Do you remember your last bowl of vanilla bean ice
cream? You'll see a lot of little brown spots in the cream
colored ice cream. Those little tiny spots are the actual
vanilla beans. We have grown so accustomed to the brown
color from imitation vanilla that we have added caramel
coloring (made from molasses) to our darker versions of
Mexican Vanilla. The darker version is by far our best seller
it ok for Mexican Vanilla to freeze?
Mexican Vanilla can freeze, thaw and still be used. Make
sure it has thoroughly thawed before use.
