Background

The scent of vanilla is one which is both instantly familiar yet strangely intangible. At its heart, it is sweet, but its heady perfume and smoky notes give it a complexity that has been prized for hundreds of years. Vanilla has been used for a variety of purposes from freshening rooms to giving perfumes a sweet scent and, of course, chefs and bakers have been using it to add depth of flavour to a variety of dishes for hundreds of years. 

 

Whether you are a fan of the most popular of all ice cream flavours or appreciate the hint of sweetness that you get when you add a drop of vanilla syrup to a cup of coffee, vanilla has a cultural significance which is matched by its popularity as a flavouring.

 

Vanilla around the world

Since the ancient Aztecs began using vanilla to flavour their drinks, mankind has hankered after the heady aroma that comes from even the tiniest drop of vanilla. Vanilla itself is derived from a type of orchid which grows small pods, known as vaina which translates from the Spanish as little pod. The Aztecs cultivated the vanilla orchid, and it was a Spanish conquistador who is credited with introducing both vanilla and chocolate to Europe during the 1520s. 

 

For centuries, these plants were pollinated exclusively by a particular species of bee in Mexico, meaning that growers relied on this insect population to propagate their plants and they were limited to the areas in which these bees lived as places where it was possible to grow vanilla.

 

The global proliferation of vanilla was made possible by the discovery, made by a twelve-year-old in 1841, that it was possible to hand-pollinate vanilla orchids. The plants are now grown extensively in the West Indies as well as in Central and South America. Between them, Madagascar (and its surrounding islands) and Indonesia produce two-thirds of the worlds vanilla supplies. 

 

The specific climatic conditions in which vanilla can be grown are a close match for those which suit the cultivation of cacao, and it is no coincidence that the popularity of chocolate and vanilla have often gone hand in hand. The Aztecs used vanilla to flavour their drinking chocolate, and the combination of chocolate and vanilla has long been a favourite amongst confectioners in Europe.

 

The difficulties faced by growers of vanilla orchids has not diminished the popularity of the flavour throughout the world. This is evidenced by the rapid price increases seen over recent years: at the end of the 20th century, vanilla could be purchased for $9 per pound, but this had increased dramatically to $115 per pound by 2015 and is subject to significant fluctuations depending on the weather and working conditions. 

 

The price of deliciousness

Vanilla is the second most expensive flavouring in the world, after saffron, and the reason for this is the labour-intensive nature of growing the plants on which the pods grow.  However, such is the popularity of vanilla as a flavour and for its aroma that it is in constant demand throughout the world.

 

One of the reasons that vanilla is so expensive is because the plants only flower for one day, sometimes even less, so constant vigilance is required on the part of the growers who need to catch them at exactly the right time in order to pollinate them. Harvesting the pods is also an incredibly labour-intensive process it is also near-impossible to predict when the fruit of the vanilla plant will ripen. Workers need to inspect each plant every day to assess whether the pod is mature enough to offer the best flavour but not over-ripe and therefore less valuable. 

 

Although vanilla is one of the most highly prized and valuable foodstuffs in the world, the end product, the dried vanilla pod, is graded based on appearance only. This means that its not always the most expensive pods which have the highest concentration of the flavour molecules which make vanilla so popular. Fortunately, with products such as vanilla syrup, you dont need to worry about getting a rich and delicious vanilla flavour whenever the mood takes you.
