Food Spotlight: vnlla: A Baker’s Best Friend Reimagined


New Line of Vanilla Extracts is Anything but Ordinary, Unleashes Creativity in the Kitchen

TETERBORO, N.J., Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Home baking is having a moment and the vnlla Extract Co. (vnlla) is here to spice up everyone's culinary creations with its new line of vanilla extract products that includes Pure Vanilla Extract, Vanilla Extract +, Vanilla Extract + Lemon, Vanilla Extract + Orange, and Vanilla Extract + Spice. Launching this month exclusively on Amazon (affiliate) its new line of vanilla extracts takes a nearly 200-year-old concept and reimagines it by adding fruit and spice extracts and natural flavors to bring creativity to the kitchen like never before.

A vanilla product line like no other
The new vanilla extracts -- developed by vnlla's parent company Symrise, a global supplier of fragrances and flavorings to the world's top brands -- are sustainably sourced in Madagascar and extracted and bottled in the United States. Seeing a need to create more possibilities for home and professional bakers craving unique ingredients, this new line of vanilla extracts delivers inspiration and unleashes creativity.

"These extracts from vnlla Extract Co. are a game changer," said Sam Mason, chef and owner of Oddfellows Ice Cream in Brooklyn, New York. "As a pastry chef, vanilla is the go-to staple in my kitchen. If you've ever tasted our Oddfellows ice cream, you know we strive for creativity while at the same time improving on some of the classics. These bold new extract blends from vnlla incorporating lemon, orange and spice have inspired me to create new unique ice cream and dessert creations that I may not have thought of before. The profiles are exciting, and they accentuate my creations beautifully."

The vanilla extract line includes five products (see product sheet for more details):

  • Pure Vanilla Extract
    You can't get any purer than Pure Vanilla Extract from vnlla with its rich yet delicate, nuanced complexity. It starts with Bourbon vanilla beans grown and harvested by farmers in Madagascar, who carefully hand-pollinate each vanilla orchid. It is then extracted and bottled in the United States to capture the essence of each and every bean.
  • Vanilla Extract + 
    Each batch of vanilla extract can vary from year to year, farm to farm, region to region. Even the weather in Madagascar can affect the growing season and bean cultivation, sometimes causing large swings in vanilla bean pricing. That is why we created our Vanilla Extract +, a blend of our Pure Vanilla Extract with other natural flavors to always deliver that classic taste at a consistent price allowing you to unleash your creativity any time of year.
  • Vanilla Extract + Flavor Blends 
    You could say we let our creative juices flow when designing our Vanilla Extract + Flavor Blends. Each blend begins with vnlla Pure Vanilla Extract and inspires creativity in the kitchen. There really are no limits to what this reimagined ingredient can bring. Flavor variations include:
    • Vanilla Extract + Lemon: the essence of freshly squeezed lemon combined with creamy vanilla.
    • Vanilla Extract + Orange: a dynamic burst of sunny orange essence combined with sweet vanilla.
    • Vanilla Extract + Spice: a nostalgic blend of warm spices combined with creamy vanilla.

"We've been in the flavor business for 150 years and as home and professional chefs evolve, so must our ingredient options," said Paul Graham, president flavor division Symrise North America. "Vanilla evokes warm emotional connections and memories which is why baking became so therapeutic in 2020. By adding flavor blends like lemon, orange and spice, we're instantly elevating desserts and drinks providing endless possibilities. Our packaging also speaks volumes with our premium glass white bottle, bamboo cap and clear strip on the side to let you know when you're running low. In a sea of brown bottles vnlla certainly stands out."

Creating shared value
In 2006, Symrise became the first flavor company to have its own operations in Madagascar. From the outset, the company has been committed to working with the local farmers and their communities to establish a supply chain that creates shared value for everyone involved. By building direct partnerships with over 7,000 farmers, more than 40,000 people benefit directly or indirectly from Symrise's employment, education in sustainable farming, crop diversification efforts, youth schooling, and healthcare benefits.

The entire line of vanilla extracts from the vnlla Extract Co. is available through Amazon. vnlla Pure Vanilla Extract is available in 4-ounce, 8-ounce and 16-ounce bottles. vnlla Vanilla Extract +, Vanilla Extract + Lemon, Vanilla Extract + Orange and Vanilla Extract + Spice are all available in 4-ounce bottles.

About the company

It all started in 1988. We were a handful of Midwest family farmers and we were fed up with the state of American agriculture. Family farms were going extinct.

Our friends and neighbors around the Coulee region were discarded by a bankrupt agricultural system, and we were told to “get big, or get out!” Industrial, chemical farming was the only existing option for survival. Never mind its effects on our health, our animals, and our environment. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Genius Vanilla Superfood Smoothie





About Genius

Finding a pure, organic smoothie is tough to locate in the market.  All we saw on the shelf were cold-pressed juices, almond milks, coconut water, and cleansing shots. We envisioned creating a healthy, organic smoothie.  Looking at the shelf from the consumer’s perspective, we wondered “Where are all the filling smoothies?  Where can I find a meal replacement drink that is thicker and more satiating than all the others?

About Frontier Bites

Frontier Bites were created several years ago when my brother Nate and I challenged each other to a baking competition to see who could come up with the best alternative to the over-processed energy bars that we regularly ate.

The rules were simple: less than 10 ingredients; gluten, soy and dairy free; no refined sugars and only ingredients you can find in your pantry.

In the end (drum roll please…) it was Nate’s Almond Blueberry Lemon bites that won the day and for the next year, Nate and I continued to tweak his original recipe until we got it just right.  From there on the Bites were a constant companion in the office, on hikes and on fishing runs.

Nate and I were excited about what we’d created and the feedback we’d received was fantastic, so in 2011 we decided to lay the groundwork to turn this dream into a business.

But that’s when our journey took a turn.  On August 15 that year, I was woken up by a call ultimately telling me that Nate had passed away in a river rafting accident.

In that moment my world was shaken – having lost my best friend and business partner in an instant.  It was a moment in life that causes you to question everything and re-evaluate your purpose and mission in light of the fragility of life.

At the time I had still kept my day-job as a civil engineer to help fund our new startup, but almost as soon as the accident happened, I knew that my mission in life was about to change – I decided to quit my job and finish what Nate and I had started and build an innovative healthy snack brand dedicated to life, good food and adventure.

From humble beginnings and a dream between two brothers, I am excited to be sharing our dream with you.  Nate and I wanted to create a better, more convenient snack that would fuel adventures big and small.  So whether you’re carpooling kids around town, burning the midnight oil at the office or climbing a mountain, Frontier Bites will be the fuel to help you get there.

Supplement Spotlight: SlimBe Small Portion Vanilla Shot

How konjac helps with weight loss

Konjac is a natural root from South East Asia where it’s believed to have all kinds of health benefits. Here’s the important one for us: taken with lots to drink, konjac is proven to help you feel fuller so you don’t need to eat as much. Though it has almost no calories, it satisfies your hunger because it contains a special fibre called glucomannan which expands with water to fill the stomach.

Our chef spent years perfecting our own secret konjac recipe which works brilliantly in Slim-Be bars and shots. For weight loss, you need to eat at least three Slim-Be products every day and drink around two litres of fluid a day.*

BeBlend (konjac glucomannan, soya isolate, konjac gum), maltodextrin, inulin, natural flavouring; vanilla, colour; beta carotene, citric acid, sweetener; sucralose, salt.

Suitable for:
People with lactose intolerance, vegetarians, vegans, people with diabetes and coeliacs.

Important information:
As with all other supplements, consult a healthcare professional before use if you are taking any medication, have a medical condition or if you are pregnant or breast feeding. There is a risk of choking for people with swallowing difficulties or when taken with inadequate fluid. Do not exceed recommended daily dose.

Keep in a dry place (out of direct sunlight), out of sight and reach of children. Do not use if shot is ripped or torn.


About the Company
Our Slim-Be shots and cereal bars contain konjac, which is a root vegetable grown in the Far East. It’s been a popular food in South East Asia for years, where it’s believed to have all kinds of health benefits. We can’t tell you whether there is truth in most of those claims, but konjac has been proven as an aid for weight loss (advice checked by EFSA) and we can be completely confident about how it helps here.

Konjac contains a soft, soluble fibre called glucomannan which has very few calories, but expands to fill the stomach if you drink plenty of water.
