Yes! You can make vanilla extract with Grade A beans. The FDA formula for making vanilla extract with Grade A vanilla beans requires a minimum of 15 ounces of beans to 1 gallon of alcohol solution in which the content of ethyl alcohol by volume amounts to not less than 35 percent—like Vodka, various types of rum, bourbon, or pure ethyl alcohol. 

When to Use

Extract grade vanilla beans are made for extracting its flavor by brewing into beer, ale, and vanilla extract using a simple Vodka, a food grade ethyl alcohol, or food grade glycerin.

    Grade B vanilla beans, also referred to as extract grade vanilla beans, are  dryer than the soft and supple grade A vanilla beans and not as pretty as regular vanilla beans. they are various sizes and have superficial color blemishes.

    The aroma is locked deep in the flesh of the extract-grade vanilla bean. The dryness concentrates the flavor and gives you more vanilla beans per pound.

    Packaged in Ambient-Air — Never Vacuum Packed 

    We package our vanilla in ambient air packaging.

    In a technical article by Daphna Havkin-Frenkel, Ph.D.; MBA she explains the negative effects of vacuum packaging vanilla and why we should not utilize that method. 

    Vacuum packaging vanilla beans can create an environment for anaerobic bacteria to grow. The benefit of keeping vanilla beans in ambient air packaging is that vanilla will continue to cure and develop flavor. We know of a vanilla bean seller in California with 10-year-old vanilla beans that they continue to cure like a fine aged wine.

    Based on 5 reviews

    I bought 1lb of extract grade and 1lb of Grade A.
    The beans were wonderful. The grade B beans seemed a bit dry, however, it was soon evident they were full of caviar. I’m expecting a great extract to be ready in December for the perfect Christmas gift.

    The ordering was easy and delivery was prompt!

    They were good and served their purpose

    My only issue with these is that they were a little drier than I am used to for grade B. The communication with the company was amazing! Super friendly and helpful! I did order some of the grade A ones to see those as well.

    Came fast, as advertised and now in a jar making vanilla extract. The company followed up after sale making sure everything went correctly. Great customer service.


    I got an early order of these vanilla beans to experiment making vanilla extract for our restaurant. I was very happy with these beans and the extract came out great. I made some gift bottles for Christmas and they were very well received.
