Nielsen-Massey Vanilla


Nielsen-Massey Vanillas has been crafting the world's finest vanillas and flavors since 1907. Founded by Richard Massey, who later partnered with Chatfield Nielsen, Sr, the company is still a family-owned operation run by the third generation of Nielsens. Having grown up with the company and amidst the rich aroma of vanilla, they've spent their entire lives learning, studying and researching the best methods to produce pure flavors as well as how to achieve the best results in recipes and applications.
Having branched out from our humble origins in Sterling, Illinois the company now possesses state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at its headquarters in Waukegan, Illinois, USA and its plant in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. Nielsen-Massey products can be found thoughout the world and are enjoyed by restaurant and bakery chefs, manufacturers of premium foods, gourmet food shops and grocers and discriminating home consumers looking to enhance their fine cooking and baking.


Vanilla Extract

Taking premium, hand-selected beans cultivated on the Bourbon Island of Madagascar, Nielsen-Massy uses a proprietary cold extraction process to gently draw out and preserve the vanilla’s over 300 flavor compounds. The result is a sweet, creamy, mellow flavor with velvety after-tones, perfect for cooking and baking both sweet and savory dishes. One tablespoon of vanilla extract is equivalent to one vanilla bean.

Vanilla Paste

Crafted using Nielsen-Massey's famous Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract and real seeds from the vanilla pod, this culinary paste enables you to add more delicious vanilla flavor without thinning out your batters or sauces. It’s also ideal for recipes, such as crème brûlée and ice cream, in which you want to add the enticing visual flair of vanilla seeds. To replace vanilla extract in a recipe, simply measure the same amount of our Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste and add. Or, replace one tablespoon of paste for every one whole vanilla bean.
