Vanilla extract will require the same attention as the pod.

Here are our tips for storing vanilla extract and maintaining its shine for as long as possible:

  1. Optimal Storage: For optimal conservation, opt for a cool, dry place, protected from light, heat, and humidity. Use an airtight container to prevent spoilage. This method is ideal if you plan to use the extract within one to two years after opening.

  2. Small Bottles, Big Efficiency: If you are a frequent user, invest in small bottles. This reduces the amount of air entering, thus preserving the freshness of the extract and preventing oxidation of the contents.

  3. Refrigeration or Room Temperature: For storage up to six months, refrigerator or room temperature are options. Choose an opaque container for optimal aroma preservation. Clear containers can allow light to penetrate, which can alter the potency of the extract over time.
