Vanilla is the worlds most popular flavour, used in many products from perfumes to chocolate.

Natural Vanilla Extract is in the limelight at the moment versus the synthetic alternative: vanillin, which is produced from petrochemical sources or wood pulp. FDL produce Vanilla Extract in our production sites in Europe and USA from natural, cured beans sourced from countries like Madagascar, Uganda and Tahiti (along with other origins). With the extract giving a complex aroma and flavour it is perfect for use in ice Cream, yoghurt and chocolate applications.

FDL can provide tailor made natural alternatives to expensive vanilla extracts. We have isolated, concentrated and identified key volatile and nonvolatile compounds producing premium cost effective natural and organic vanilla extracts using our proprietary extraction processes.
