    There was a scare a few years ago about Mexican vanilla containing coumarin.
    A lot of labels there now actually state that they contain no coumarin.
    I like the Pasa brand, but went into a cooking/restaurant supply place & the chefs there seem to like the Molina brand, which contains vanillin...
    Haven't compared them side by side yet.
