Heilala Vanilla Pure Vanilla Extract.
Heilala Vanilla’s origins began in 2002 as an aid project founded by New Zealander, John Ross, and his family. The Kingdom of Tonga had been ravaged by Cyclone Waka, leaving the Islands and its people shattered in the wake of an exceptionally vicious natural disaster.
Heilala vanilla extract comes from the source, undergoing a highly-scientific yet natural process (cold-pressed, slow extract), where Heilala's dedicated local Tongan growers and pickers hand select only the most premium vanilla beans, which then undergo a unique, patented three month cold extraction process to ensure that vanilla’s 200+ flavor compounds are purely extracted. This process means you get a real vanilla extract that tastes like a vanilla bean extract should.
