Vanilla makes everything smell and taste so good. This is a fact! And it is healthy too. Did you know that vanilla is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and can significantly lower cholesterol? That is if you eat the real fruit and not the liquid extract you can buy from the grocery.
That vanilla extract bottle you see from the grocery aisles in not the real vanilla extract. It is an imitation using a component called vanillin. It comes from wood and coal. And so, enough said with that. Coal… Coal!!!
