How to store the vanilla pods
In order to preserve the flavors of your vanilla pod, we suggest you apply simple little rules that are more or less the same for all spices. They must be stored:
- protected from light
- avoid any temperature shock
- protected from moisture
Among the classic mistakes, beware of containers with cork , because cork promotes the development of mold on vanilla pods.
The best is the glass container, iron box or PET box form the Comptoir de Toamasina specially designed for the conservation of vanilla.
If you can coat the vanilla beans with waxed paper it's even better. You will do conservation as in Madagascar.
If you have a lot, make a bundle of pods by stringing with raffia or a natural fiber, it will retain their moisture and flexibility for as long as possible.
Be careful never put your vanilla pods in the fridge or freezer .
If you follow all the advice: you will keep easily worth 1 year pod of optimum material. But little by little the pods lose their humidity. It's all normal because the vanilla bean is a spice that improves with time.

We will say that the price at the direct sales producer for the individual will oscillate between 800 and 1000 euros per kilo according to imports. (Attention it's an average).
The reasons for the increase of Madagascar vanilla
First of all, world demand is rising sharply. With a stronger demand than supply. We must not forget the rosewood trade or the traffickers launder money in vanilla and the flights that lead to an increase in security.
Unfavorable weather conditions have brought down Malagasy production. So the price of the crazy black gold that has reached the vanilla fruit of the orchid.
Today the quality of the vanilla bean is deteriorating enormously and the Comptoir de Toamasina always selects the best pods to give you an intense pleasure for a creative cuisine.
Will Vanilla soon be replaced by industrial vanillin?
There is a risk that artificial vanillin will supplant the vanilla pod.
