Vanilla Extracts

Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract

Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract is crafted from premium, hand-selected Ugandan vanilla beans. We use a proprietary cold extraction process to gently draw out and preserve more than 300 delicate flavors. The result is a flavor profile that is bold and creamy-sweet with notes of chocolate.

Similar to vanilla from Madagascar, Ugandan vanilla is a versatile, all-purpose staple for a range of baking and cooking applications. It pairs especially well with chocolate, caramel and citrus dishes.

Inspired by the recent interest in global flavors, Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract helps expand Nielsen-Massey’s line of single-origin, pure vanilla extracts.

Located in East Africa, Uganda has rolling hills and low mountains and borders Kenya, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. Vanilla is grown in the central, western and eastern regions as an intercrop of bananas, coffee and cocoa.

Due to its climate conditions, fertile soil and careful cultivation, Uganda can harvest vanilla beans twice a year, unlike other vanilla-growing regions, where the harvest is once a year. As a result, Uganda is one of the largest exporters of vanilla and is producing some of the world’s highest quality beans.

Nielsen-Massey works directly with in-country suppliers who source the finest vanilla available from diverse networks of farmers country-wide. Additionally, as part of its work with the Sustainable Vanilla Initiative, Nielsen-Massey is collaborating with Uganda’s Minister of Agriculture to promote the advancement of the vanilla-growing sector. Strong government backing and the creation of a clear regulatory framework will help Uganda’s vanilla output grow, enhancing farmers’ livelihoods.

What Chefs Have to Say

About our products

It’s no secret, both for cooking and baking, always use the best ingredients. What’s the point of investing time to create something and use average ingredients? Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Bean Paste are my favorites, as well as the Lemon Extract. I like using the Vanilla Bean Paste, as it is the closest to using fresh vanilla pods with all the glorious little seeds, and the consistency doesn’t interfere with the recipes.
