Ground Vanilla Bean Powder is made of whole gourmet vanilla beans and ground to a fine powder. It is a great alternative to vanilla extract and gives you a delicious vanilla flavour without the added alcohol.One advantage of vanilla powder is that, even under high heat, it will impart its intense flavour. Because extract contains alcohol, it loses some of its potency when baking at high temperature because of evaporation. You can also simply add to your smoothies, oatmeal mix, ground coffee beans or custom tea blend to add a delicious vanilla flavour.
As a general rule, you can substitute 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder.
