La Dame in Vanilla is dedicated to providing superior quality vanilla at the most reasonable prices. We were born as a venture to share a passion for vanilla with every home in the world. As most 'vanilla' flavourings we see in supermarkets aren’t actually vanilla at all, La Dame in Vanilla is 100% real vanilla. 100% alcohol free. 100% halal, certified by Halal MUI. Our vanilla bean is organically grown, carefully handpicked by local farmer in Indonesia and is proudly handcrafted in Indonesia.
A whopping 97% of the food industry is using vanilla essence, a cheap artificial substitute flavoured with vanillin. Vanillin is derived from the paper-pulp byproduct lignin. So most of those vanilla milkshakes and cheesecakes you love, have never even been near real vanilla!
The truth is, not only it is artificial, but as a consumer, you are missing out on the depth, richness and health benefits that La Dame in Vanilla gives you! Compared to the one flavour (vanillin) used in vanilla essence, real vanilla has over 250 flavour compounds and has been proven as a powerful anti-inflammatory and booster of mental performance.
Vanilla is often referred to as the 'underwear of baking', an invisible essential. It supports, balances, mellows and gives depth to dishes. It can be its own star in ice cream, custard or crème brulee. At various doses and concentrations vanilla can enhance the flavour of chocolate, coffee, nut and fruit flavours. When used with citrus, it tends to cover the acid bite.
We thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share our passion for vanilla with you.
