Vanilla powder is a dry, powdered form of vanilla flavoring that is derived from vanilla beans. It is made by grinding dried vanilla beans into a fine powder. Vanilla powder offers a convenient and shelf-stable alternative to vanilla beans or liquid vanilla extract. It has a strong and aromatic vanilla flavor, similar to other forms of vanilla, but with a slightly different texture and usage. Vanilla powder is often used in recipes where a dry form of vanilla is preferred, such as in dry mixes, spice rubs, and beverages.
