True Cinnamon Ground - Certified Organic: cinnamon is a very popular spice found in most pantries around the world. Not only is it delicious, its many health benefits are also impressive. However, most people don't realise there are actually two main types of this spice.
Cassia cinnamon is considered lower quality. It is very cheap and is the type most commonly consumed around the world. Almost all cinnamon found in supermarkets is the cassia variety. Cassia tends to be a dark brown-red color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture than Ceylon cinnamon.
Ceylon cinnamon 'true cinnamon' is less common and has long been prized as a cooking spice. It is quite expensive compared to the more common cassia variety. It’s made from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. Ceylon is tan-brown in color and contains many tight sticks with soft layers. These features provide a highly desirable quality and texture.
Cinnamon can be used in the preparation of chocolate, especially in Mexico, which is the main importer of cinnamon. It is also used in many dessert recipes, such as apple pie, doughnuts, and cinnamon buns as well as spicy candies, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and liqueurs.
For generations, cinnamon has been prized for its health properties. In particular, it’s been claimed to benefit blood sugar control, which is important for people with diabetes.
