Borregaard is the only producer of vanillin from wood: sustainable vanillin, made from natural, renewable raw material.
Building on six decades of experience we have developed a wide range of specially adapted varieties of vanillin for different applications. These include food and beverage, flavour and fragrance, personal care and cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, microbiome and plant-based crop protection products.
Our portfolio includes:
- Plant-based vanillin, vanillin and ethyl vanillin
- Vanillin powder flavours
- Tailor-made vanillin creations for specific food applications
Borregaard has produced plant-based vanillin from Norway spruce since 1962, sourced from sustainably managed forests. Our plant-based vanillin is the only vanillin on the market certified according to PEFC, based on 100% renewable carbon. It provides a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to guaiacol vanillin synthesised from crude oil.
