Colibri Vanille is the only company in Canada that makes vanilla extract. This is interesting in itself, but it is also the only one to make it from a specific terroir.
Proud to work closely with vanilla producers from around the world, without intermediaries and in fair trade, Colibri Vanille makes extracts that have unique flavours because they are made with micro-lots of vanilla grown by families or small groups of producers. Each year has its own vintage.
Our extracts are not made from green vanilla, like the industrial ones, because we favor artisanal processing in the country of origin in order to support the economic structure of the producing country. We make our extracts from vanilla beans, ripened to perfection and processed patiently by hand, as it should be.
Vanilla paste is prepared from our extracts. They are typically used to make homemade ice cream or yogurt, or any other type of dish in which you want to see an abundance of small, suspended beans that pop like caviar and add flavor and texture to culinary preparations. Vanilla pastes are used like extract, but because they contain sugar, you need to use a little more and modify the sugar content of the recipe. One tablespoon of vanilla paste is equal to one teaspoon of extract or one 5 gram vanilla bean.
Tahisentis Vanilla Paste is prepared exclusively with Tahitensis vanilla from the village of Mandi, Papua New Guinea, our PNG vanilla suppliers.
Ingredients: Sugar, vanilla extract, vanilla pulp and seeds, guar gum and xanthan gum, natural flavors.
