I loved the vanilla bean paste I bought at Trader Joe's many years ago so before I suggested "buy vanilla paste," I went to The Google and found this article, "The Scandal Between Vanilla Bean Paste vs. Vanilla Extract". While the paste receives excellent reviews, much to my surprise I now know that the flecks in the paste are ground up bean and not vanilla seed infused as one might expect. Maybe everyone knows this already ;) Colleen

Nielsen-Massey's vanilla paste ingredient list
Sugar, water, vanilla extract, vanilla beans, gum tragacanth

1 Tbsp. vanilla bean paste = 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract = 1 whole vanilla bean = 1 Tbsp. vanilla powder
