Porter Foods is now offering vanilla bean paste in squeezy bottles, with larger sizes for foodservice available on request.

They have been designed to make life easier, by taking away the struggle with fiddly vanilla pods. The paste contains real Madagascan vanilla seeds, and can be used in place of vanilla pods with no compromise to quality or flavour, according to the firm.

The 270ml squeezy bottles contain the equivalent of 30 vanilla pods, and cost £9.50 each.
