Coming Soon: Ugandan and Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extracts

We are pleased to announce that we will soon be adding single-origin pure vanilla extracts from Uganda and Indonesia to our line-up. These new products for retail and foodservice customers join the company’s existing line of single-origin vanilla products sourced from Madagascar, Mexico and Tahiti; the introductions make Nielsen-Massey the first brand to offer five single-origin pure vanilla extracts.

All of our pure vanilla extracts are crafted from premium, hand-selected vanilla beans and undergo a proprietary, slow, cold-extraction process to gently draw out and preserve more than 300 delicate flavors.

Vanilla Line Up

Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract

Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract features a bold, creamy-sweet flavor profile with notes of chocolate. Due to the climate conditions, fertile soil and careful cultivation, the vanilla crop is among the highest quality in the world and can be harvested twice a year.

As a founding member of the Sustainable Vanilla Initiative, Nielsen-Massey is working with Uganda’s Minister of Agriculture to promote the advancement of the vanilla-growing sector. Strong governmental backing and the creation of a clear regulatory framework will help Uganda’s vanilla output grow, enhancing farmers’ livelihoods and helping to stabilize the global vanilla market.

Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract Suggested Applications:

  • A versatile, all-purpose staple for a range of baking and cooking applications
  • Pairs especially well with chocolate, caramel and citrus dishes, enhancing and layering on flavor
  • Perfect in ice cream, cakes, cookies and smoothies

Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extract

Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extract has a strong, upfront flavor profile with woody, smoky notes. The country’s vanilla-growing region stretches 5,000 miles end-to-end, ensuring a stable supply of vanilla and the largest crop behind Madagascar.

In Indonesia, Nielsen-Massey is currently consulting on the development of a Food Forest Garden program led by the Crown Princess Mangkubumi. The program helps farmers diversify their sources of income and achieve a sustainable living through proven agricultural techniques that maximize crop yields.

Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extract Suggested Applications:

  • Nielsen-Massey’s best value, single-origin vanilla extract
  • Holds flavor through heat, making it the perfect choice for high-heat and slow-baked applications
  • Complements the sweetness in chocolate- and dairy-based recipes, providing a valuable flavor boost
  • Ideal in cakes, cookies, muffins, ice cream and crème brulee

Indonesian Vanilla


Ugandan and Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extracts will be available in 4-ounce and 32-ounce sizes. Like all Nielsen-Massey products, the extracts are all-natural, allergen-free, certified kosher, GMO-free and gluten-free.
