Explorers introduced vanilla from Central America to Europe in the 1520s. However, without the native Melipona bee to pollinate, the vines would not fruit. In 1841 a simple, artificial hand-pollination method was developed and is still in use today, enabling the growth of various different vanilla species and cultivars worldwide.
There is now a plethora of vanilla profiles available - none more popular than the 'classic' Madagascan vanilla. Although vanilla originated in Central America, the same V. planifolia cultivar grows in Madagascar and is derived using the same traditional growing methods. The provenance of Madagascan vanilla has enabled it to become a global benchmark.
At Synergy, we source the highest-quality Madagascan vanilla beans to produce extracts that complement our extended, versatile range of vanilla solutions.
Vanilla remains one of the core flavours in bakery, dairy desserts and ice creams. Having developed an innovative range, we are confident that we will deliver the best taste for your needs with our high-impact vanilla solutions:
