One-half teaspoon of pure ground vanilla bean powder is approximately equivalent to one teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
Ground vanilla bean powder is a great way to add flavor to foods and beverages while avoiding alcohol or sugar. It’s just a straight-forward, flavorful powder that packs a punch!
Substitute ground vanilla bean powder for vanilla beans in ice cream, custards, sauces — both sweet and savory — and baked goods. To layer flavors, use a base of ground vanilla bean powder and add a splash of vanilla extract to round up vanilla notes.
