The Summer Fancy Food Show takes place June 23 -25 at the Javits Center in New York City. One of the exhibitors at that show is Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, which will be showcasing two new pure vanilla extracts.
These extracts, coming from Uganda and Indonesia, are available for retail and foodservice customers. They are part of the company's larger line of single-origin vanilla products, including those sourced from Madagascar, Mexico, and Tahiti.
Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract features a bold, creamy-sweet flavor profile with notes of chocolate. It can be used in a wide variety of baking and cooking applications, pairing especially well with chocolate, caramel, and citrus dishes.
Indonesian Pure Vanilla Extract features a strong, upfront flavor profile with woody, smoky notes. It holds its flavor especially well in high-heat and slow-baked applications such as cakes, cookies, and crème brûlée. It can complement the sweetness in chocolate- and dairy-based recipes.
“We have seen an increased demand for global flavors, which led us to expand our line of single-origin pure vanilla extracts with the introduction of Ugandan and Indonesian to help fulfill this need in retail and foodservice markets,” says Kirk Trofholz, Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to showcase these offerings, as they not only exemplify our dedication to providing the highest quality product, but also our commitment to sustainability initiatives across the globe.”
Nielsen-Massey’s new extracts are in accordance with its commitment to sustainability. In Indonesia, Nielsen-Massey is consulting on the development of a Food Forest Garden that will create a permaculture ecosystem to help thousands of people in Indonesia receive access to a sustainable food source. Meanwhile, the company is working with Uganda’s Minister of Agriculture to promote the advancement of the vanilla-growing sector to help Uganda’s vanilla output grow, enhancing farmers' livelihoods and helping to stabilize the global vanilla market.
