Simply Organic’s vanilla flavor is made with oleoresin which is the pure and natural concentration of all the complex aroma and flavor essences of fully cured vanilla beans. Simply Organic gets their vanilla from small-scale farmers in Madagascar who are organized into a self-governing cooperative. Their vanilla processing is very decentralized, with the majority of the blanching and curing being done by the farmers themselves prior to sale to exporters, providing good quality beans with an excellent flavor profile. This is the first non-alcoholic organic vanilla flavoring commercially available in the United States. Contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume. Use as a measure for measure equivalent in place of alcohol-based vanilla extract.
