Omega Ingredients to Develop Natural Vanilla Alternatives

In light of the on-going worldwide vanilla crisis, expert natural flavour creators Omega Ingredients have developed a vanilla flavour and an extract, both of which are 100% natural. With customers actively avoiding artificial flavourings in favour of all-natural ingredients in their food, and prices for vanilla surging ever higher due to bad weather in Madagascar (where over 80% of the world’s vanilla supply is produced), products such as Omega’s 100% natural vanilla extract and flavour offer a simple and economically advantageous solution to manufacturers.

Now the world’s second most expensive spice, 2017 has seen vanilla bean prices rocket to $450-$500 a kilo, up from around $100 a kg in 20151, leading many companies to look for alternatives to acquiring their own beans. Omega Ingredients offer the perfect solution.

Designed to meet all EU legislation, both the Omega Ingredients’ vanilla extract and the flavour are high quality, entirely natural and continue to be applicable in all ways that vanilla can be used, including food preparation, dairy, ice-cream, beverages, confectionery and baking applications.

Using the natural product offers many benefits for manufacturers; not only is natural vanilla much deeper and richer in flavour with no chemical aftertaste, but it’s high in antioxidants.

Imitation vanilla will often contain vanillin, a main component of vanilla beans but being non-natural, may be derived from chemical synthesis or indeed as a by-product of wood pulp processing.

By working with real vanilla beans, Omega, develops their own natural vanilla extract and use this to create their natural vanilla flavours enabling customers to future-proof products, whilst also ensuring they produce clean label descriptions on pack e.g. containing “100% natural vanilla extract” or “Natural Vanilla Flavour”.

Omega Ingredients specialises in creating award-winning natural flavours for the food and beverage trade. With over 50 years of combined industry practice, Omega founders Steve and Elizabeth Pearce are seasoned biochemists renowned worldwide for delivering innovative cutting-edge biochemistry through the use of all-natural materials.

As confirmed by their AA Grade score in a recent BRC audit, the pursuit of excellence is central to Omega’s ethic. Companies of all sizes, from start-ups led by entrepreneurs, through to major global brands, trust Omega Ingredients to create the highest quality products that are bespoke for their business needs.
