This review deals with the Vanilla plant: history; botanical description; chemistry of vanilla beans; curing of vanilla beans; commercial extraction of vanilla flavour; standard specifications and uses of vanilla flavour. The production of vanillin by both chemical and biotechnological methods is described. The biotechnological production of vanilla flavour metabolites by plant tissue/cell culture, microbial biotransformation and molecular approaches is also presented, together with a discussion on economic and safety considerations.
