A sustainable production route
Vanilla is a complex blend of flavor and fragrance ingredients extracted from the seed pods of the vanilla orchid. The most important ingredient in this blend is vanillin. However, because of the cost and supply chain variability of natural vanilla, most products that want to impart the aroma of vanilla do not in fact use vanilla but rather synthetic vanillin (99% of all vanillin consumed worldwide) made primarily from petrochemicals or chemically derived from lignin.
Our vanillin is fermented.
IFF partnership, ingredient on market since 2014
Evolva partnered vanillin with International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) in 2011. Vanillin was successfully brought to market in mid-2014, since then IFF has been responsible for commercialization.
