Why Mexican Vanilla?
Southern Mexico is home to some of the richest vanilla beans on earth. A climate of warm sun and high humidity creates the perfect environment for these plants to thrive. Mexican-grown vanilla beans are ideal for making vanilla with a rich, smooth flavor.
Coumarin was a popular ingredient in certain types of vanilla in the United States until it was outlawed in the 1950’s. In some parts of Mexico it’s still common to find vanilla extract that has been enhanced with coumarin. Blue Cattle Truck Mexican Vanilla is produced in Mexico and then exported to the U.S. to be bottled. This process guarantees that all of Blue Cattle Truck’s vanilla complies with the United States FDA regulations. Blue Cattle Truck vanilla is 100% all-natural vanilla.
