Would you believe that vanilla has a remarkable story, filled with history, intrigue, passion, and piracy? Although it is used as a flavoring for foods and beverages, only a few know that it is also the secret ingredients that makes a lot of medicines more palatable. It also makes some perfumes smell better. Here are other vanilla trivia for your consumption:

  • Vanilla was first used by the Aztecs to flavor chocolate. The first use of vanilla dates back to Mexico, where the Aztecs used it to create a drink called Xoco-latl, made from cocoa and vanilla beans.

  • The vanilla plant, Vanilla planifolia, is a slender, green-stemmed creeping or climbing perennial of the orchid family. Cultivating vanilla beans is a lengthy and labor-intensive process, as each flower must be hand pollinated to ensure it produces a bean. The vanilla plant is the only orchid that produces a bean. The vanilla plant is the only orchid that produces anything edible - and there are upwards to 20,000 orchid varieties excluding hybrids.

     

  • The vanilla plant produces one flower which lasts for only one day. If it is not pollinated, it will be another year before it flowers again.

  • Like some wines, the vanilla extract is aged to perfection before it is bottled and sold.
