Natural Vanilla Paste is a proprietary double-fold blend of pure vanilla extract, sugar, natural flavors, caramel color, xanthan gum (a natural thickener) and filtered water. There are no imitation ingredients in this product. It is a dark amber colored viscous liquid containing vanilla bean seeds, and having a characteristic vanilla aroma and flavor. It will maintain flavor for at least three years if stored in a cool, dark place. (Do not refrigerate.)
Natural Vanilla Paste can be used just like pure vanilla paste for baking, cooking and flavoring beverages, condiments, etc. The flavor is very similar to pure vanilla paste, but has its own profile that emphasizes the natural vanillin rather than the full flavor spectrum found in pure vanilla.
Ingredients: Pure vanilla extract (water, sugar cane alcohol, vanilla bean extractives), sugar, natural flavors, caramel color, xanthan gum (a natural thickener) and filtered water. Contains 20% alcohol. No artificial flavors or preservatives added. Non-GMO. Gluten-free. Made in a facility that is free of potential allergens.

We use 2-Fold Vanilla Paste in our favorite overnight oatmeal recipe, a daily staple in our home. The vanilla flavor stands up well to the cinnamon and fruit ingredients. This vanilla paste is easily the thickest we have used. We view its lower alcohol content (20% vs 30%-35% more common in other brands) as a positive.
