Cassia is known to have high levels of coumarin which is not good for health unlike true cinnamon which has low levels of coumarin. Our Organic Ceylon Cinnamon powder is also certified organic, certified Kosher and certified Non-GMO.
Cinnamon is an ancient spice that comes from the bark of several species of the Cinnamomum genus of evergreen trees, which belong to the laurel family. While Cinnamomum cassia, which is native to China, is the most common type sold in the United States and Canada. Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, also known as Cinnamomum verum, (meaning True Cinnamon) or Ceylon Cinnamon, comes primarily from Sri Lanka. It is more delicately flavored than cassia and more highly prized, though less widely used.
From ancient times, cinnamon has been used as much for its sweet, sharp, and sensuous fragrance as it was for its taste. It was used in Ancient Egypt used cinnamon to embalm the dead, and the Romans burned it on funeral pyres. It has been in use from Biblical times. It became a status symbol during the middle ages. The Protuguese introduced it to the west from Sri Lanka.
Cinnamon's benefits come from three basic types of components in the essential oils found in its bark. These oils contain active components called cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate, and cinnamyl alcohol, plus a wide range of other volatile substances.
