From 2000-2005, the cost of vanilla beans, and by extension, pure vanilla extract skyrocketed 1,000%. In fact, wholesale pure vanilla extract reached an unprecedented $225 per gallon! In a continuing effort to provide our customers the highest levels of innovation, quality, and value, Parker Flavors developed a line of natural vanilla flavors as a high quality, heat-stable alternative to the exorbitant cost of pure vanilla extract.

robust flavor at a smart price

Our natural vanillas contain all of the flavoring qualities of pure vanilla extract at a lower price point. Even now that the vanilla bean market has finally returned to low levels, you can continue saving with our natural vanilla flavors.

To make our natural vanilla flavors, we start with the finest grade vanilla beans as the main characterizing ingredient. The vanilla beans are blended with other natural vanilla ingredients for a robust yet delicate flavor.

strength & usage

Our natural vanilla flavor and vanilla WONFs are matched in strength to pure vanilla extract. We have done extensive internal research and sought out feedback from numerous bakeries and dairies, large and small, to ensure that there is no need to adjust your formulas.
