Cinnamon Facts

Did you know?

In the first century A.D., cinnamon was 15 times more expensive than silver, due to the high demand and very low availability.

]Reasons to use ground cinnamon

  • May have anti-inflammatory properties
  • May be loaded with antioxidants
  • May reduce the risk of heart disease
  • May lower blood sugar levels
  • May improve sensitivity to some hormones
  • May help fight bacterial and fungal infections
  • In addition to cinnamon powder having health benefits, cassia can be used to possibly help protect against cancer and may produce beneficial effects on Alzheimer’s disease

Moderation is key

Repeated intake of ground cinnamon or cinnamon powder at higher doses may cause adverse effects in some individuals, such as mouth sores, breathing problems and liver damage.

Applications

Whether buying for an individual household or you’re needing wholesale cinnamon powder, adding the spice brings color and flavor to baked goods, marinades for meat, such as beef or lamb, adding the tropical spice to tea, and a variety of other dishes.

Cassia can be used in sweet applications, such as baked goods like apple pie and cinnamon rolls and it can also be incorporated into savory seasonings such as five-spice.

Origin

Cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka. It comes from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Meanwhile, cassia originates from Southern China and is a member of the Lauraceae family. It’s similar to Cinnamomum verum but has a more pungent flavor.

Cassia, or Cinnamomum aromaticum, is made from strips of the inner bark of the Cinnamomum tree. The strips are dried until they curl into quills, then they’re pulsated to make ground cinnamon. Cassia or a mix of cassia and cinnamon powder is often what shoppers buy in commercial stores as cinnamon.
