Vanilla (Vanilla)

Vanilla planifolia Extract

Vanilla plants belong to the tropical climbing orchid family, and Vanilla planifolia Andrews which is cultivated in many countries such as Madagascar, Indonesia, Tahiti and Tonga is favored by the food and beverage industries. Natural vanilla is a complex mixture of flavor components extracted from the ground black bean pods using alcohol. The fruity, floral fragrance of cured vanilla pods, combined with a deep, aromatic body, makes it a widely accepted flavoring agent, especially in sweet foods and drinks.

The main chemical constituent of vanilla is vanillin (4-hydroxy-3-metoxy benzaldehyde). Artificial vanilla flavour only contains this component. Vanillin can be synthesized from readily available materials such as guaiacol or eugenol derived from clove oil. Natural vanilla extract contains other polar aromatic flavor compounds such as 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde, 4- hydroxybenzoic acid, 4-hydroxybenzyl alcohol, and vanillic acid that can be identified by HPLC. Therefore, the ratio of 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and vanillic acid to vanillin in natural vanilla extracts were used to confirm authenticity of vanilla extracts and as useful index for detecting the origin of vanilla extracts. Amongst the variety of natural flavors in use today, vanilla occupies a prominent market place and has been in use for the preparation of ice creams, chocolates, cakes, soft drinks, pharmaceuticals, liquors, perfumery and in nutraceuticals.

The flavor profile of vanilla contains more than 200 components, of which only 26 occur in concentrations greater than 1 mg/kg. Vanillin is the main constituent vanillin, which occurs in a concentration of 2.0% w/w in cured vanilla pods. True vanilla pods possess a pure delicate spicy flavor that cannot be duplicated exactly by synthetic products. For this reason, and because of limited supply, natural vanilla is able to command a premium price, leading to numerous efforts of its blending and adulteration. Also, the flavor quality of vanilla extracts vary considerably, depending upon the origin, curing technique used, storage conditions, extraction methods, and age of the vanilla extract itself.

The active constituents of vanilla are responsible for its various biological and therapeutic activities. Several studies demonstrated that vanilla extract has antioxidant, antianxiolytic, antidepressant, antiinflammatory and antimetastatic potential by suppressing enzymatic activity of matrix metaloproteinase-9.

High Standard Product Quality Control​



In vitro and in vivo studies on antioxidant activity of vanilla extract or vanillin
  • β-carotene-linoleate
  • DPPH assay
Male mice (n=25)
Duration of the study 3 hour 5, 15, 30 and 60 min
Dosage 50, 100, and 200 ppm Oral: 100 mg/kg of vanillin (single dose)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Vanilla standards
  • Control group
  • Treatment group
Parameters analysed
  • Bleaching of the β-carotene
  • Free radical scavenging activity
  • Plasma vanillin content by HPLC
  • Plasma ORAC assay
Vanilla extract posesses antioxidant activity that potentially be used as nutraceuticals.
Visible Benefits

  • Total polyphenol content in the vanilla extract was found to be 17±0.1%
  • 4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl alcohol and 4-hydroxybenzyl alcohol showed appreciable antioxidant activity
  • Vanillin and vanillic acid exhibited much lower antioxidant activity.
Visible Benefits

  • Vanillin had the strongest antioxidant effect in the ORAC assay.
  • The order of inhibition was vanillin>vanillic acid>ferulic acid>Trolox>ascorbic acid
  • Oral administration of vanillin to mice increased the vanillin concentration and the antioxidant activity in plasma.

  • Control group (C)
  • Treated with carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)
  • Treated with Vanillin (Va)

  • Antioxidant enzymes and glutathione level in liver
The antioxidant and antiinflammatory effects of vanillin against CCl4-induced acute liver injury may involve its ability to block CCl4-generated free radicals.
Visible Benefits

  • Pretreatment with vanillin prior the administration of CCl4 significantly prevented the decrease of protein synthesis and the increase in plasma ALT and AST.
  • It also inhibited hepatic lipid peroxidation (MDA) and PCO formation and attenuated the (CCl4)-mediated depletion of antioxidant enzyme (SOD and GSH).
  • Vanillin markedly attenuated the expression levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6) and prevented CCl4-induced hepatic cell alteration and necrosis, as indicated by liver histopathology.
