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 sweetness 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 Choose Our Vanilla Extract Over Others?
A pure vanilla extract is made with just a few ingredients: vanilla beans, alcohol, and water. That's what's in OliveNation Vanilla Extract. It's free from artificial stabilizers, corn syrup, and caramel -- the way it should be.

To increase the vanilla flavor, bakers may double up on the amount of extract called for in a recipe. But with our product, there's no need to do that -- a little goes a long way. We use the best vanilla beans and extraction process available -- ensuring an unbeatable vanilla extract with an exceptional flavor and fragrance.

Cheaper brands of vanilla extract use lower-quality vanilla beans, producing an inferior product. But the proof is in the pudding -- some of the best bakeries in the U.S. rely on our extract for their baked goods. Just look through our reviews. Our customers are repeat buyers because they can always trust that OliveNation Vanilla Extract will help them bake the tastiest treats. We stand by our product 100%, so give it a try.

Why is 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.

    I have not used this product yet, but I love this brand of vanilla and I found it available here in a larger size and reasonably priced. I look forward to baking many cakes with it.

    Very sweet, delicious vanilla!

    Posted by Sarah on Nov 23rd 2016

    To me, this vanilla has almost a maple note to it, very sweet, used in a whipped cream for pumpkin pie and it was amazing, strong enough to take on its own sort of flavor. It may not be perfect for every single thing you want to add vanilla to, but I like having a few different vanilla extracts for different purposes, given their flavor profiles. Also used it in a pecan pie filling and it was fantastic!

    Shocked that price has almost doubled

    Posted by Jodi on Nov 4th 2016

    Fantastic vanilla, but shocked when we placed our last order and cost was double, yes double, compared to an order earlier this year. Not sure how much longer we can afford to buy.
