Introducing OliveNation Vanilla Extract -- a premium extract crafted from fully-ripened Madagascar vanilla beans which are cured and cold-extracted. This superior process produces a vanilla extract with an unmatched depth of flavor and wonderful aroma.
With baking, it's all about the quality of the ingredients, especially regarding vanilla extract. It plays an essential role in recipes -- adding flavor and heightening the flavors of the other ingredients. High-quality vanilla extract is the difference between desserts that taste amazing and ones that are so-so.
When it comes to choosing vanilla, baking experts agree that a premium vanilla extract is the way to go -- lesser quality extracts and vanilla substitutes just don't cut it.

Why is Pure Vanilla Extract So Expensive?
Producing vanilla extract is a labor-intensive process that starts with harvesting the vanilla beans. Vanilla beans grow on orchids. In Madagascar, where much of the world's vanilla is grown, each flower is pollinated by hand which is very time-consuming.
Additionally, there has been a vanilla bean shortage due to droughts and adverse weather events in previous years, driving up the cost.
Consumers are also more interested in buying foods without artificial ingredients. Therefore, food manufacturers are moving away from artificial vanilla which increases the demand for real vanilla extract and increases the price. Due to the nature of growing and harvesting vanilla beans, there's only so much extract that can be produced at a time. High demand and low supply make for pricier vanilla.
