About this Book

Vanilla is the world's most commonly-used flavour and fragrance, used in foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other products and is therefore of considerable economic importance.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology used in the production and supply chain of vanilla products. A wide range of international authors cover topics which include agricultural production, global markets, analytical methods, sensory analysis, food and fragrance applications, organic and fair trade vanilla, diseases that affect vanilla, and novel uses. It is of interest to academic researchers in this field and is also an important resource for the vanilla industry and those companies that use vanilla and vanillin as flavours and fragrances worldwide.

Key Features:

  • The only book to cover such a wide range of topics on this most commercially valuable of flavour ingredients
  • Includes an analysis of the current vanilla markets in the US and Europe
  • Edited by experts who hold roles in the flavour industry and academic research
