Collected from the Amazonian forest in Guyana (FR), the Tonka bean is a remarkable spice for desserts and pastries. It is the favourite of great chefs. The pod will bring you all the aromatic power of this bean. A pod is equal to a ground bean, ready to use.
Flavour: this spice delivers fragrances between almond and vanilla, with caramelised notes. It is surprising.
Why the pod?
Spices are extremely fragile and once they are ground they quickly lose their fragrance and flavour. When you buy them, they often come from wholesalers, they have already come a long way and, once at home, they return only a tiny part of their potential. Max Daumin selects raw spices from its producers. These are packaged in hermetically sealed pods immediately after grinding. This pod guarantees a perfect preservation of the spice's original aromas for a total release of flavours and aromas in your recipes. So concentrated that one is enough for a dish for 4 to 6 people (according to your taste).
An independent sensory analysis shows that two months after purchase, when incorporated into a dish, turmeric restores 92% of its original taste when in a pod, 59% when in a traditional glass bottle.
