The green capsules or fruit are picked, and the immature vanilla pod or bean is fermented and dried to turn it into a fragrant brown vanilla bean. Our oleoresin is the superior bourbon variety; that it is 10 fold relates to its concentration. One of the most popular flavours in the world, it is used in cuisine, cosmetics and perfumery.
