Vanilla is the fruit of an orchid plant, which grows in the form of a bean pod and may easily be one of the most well-known flavors in the world. Vanilla vines may grow to a length of 80 feet or more whose growth process is long and painstaking. It is the world's costliest spice after saffron. It's sweet mild flavor, while considered "plain", is really a complex layering of sweet and spicy flavors that have been used for centuries to flavor everything from chocolate to milk.
Most people appreciate vanilla beans only for their pleasing aroma and sweet taste, but these beans actually have health benefits. Vanilla is rich in antioxidants and its antibacterial nature serves to boost your immune system and lower stress on the body. It promotes healthy digestion and its strong pleasant aroma calms your stresses, refreshes your mind and revitalizes your energy.
