Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, tea and traditional foods. The aroma and flavour of cinnamon derive from its essential oil and principal component, cinnamaldehyde, as well as numerous other constituents including eugenol.

Cinnamon is the name for several species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice. Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be "true cinnamon", but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from the related species Cinnamomum cassia, also referred to as "cassia".[1][2] In 2018, Indonesia and China produced 70% of the world's supply of cinnamon, Indonesia producing nearly 40% and China 30%.[3]

About

Cinnamon is a purer form which has more potent properties including a very high cinnamaldehyde content.  To obtain this precious Organic Cinnamon Sticks, the inner bark is gently dried with warm air and then ground down. This rich brown sticks has a characteristic aromatic taste and comes all the way from regions in Asia where the cinnamon tree grows.

Organic  Cinnamon is nutritionally superior to its more common, lower-quality cousin Cassia (usually the cinnamon found in supermarkets) – it also carries a fuller and more satisfying flavour that works well with both sweet and savoury foods. This makes organic Ceylon cinnamon powder an essential spice to have in the kitchen cupboard. Cinnamon Sticks are extracted from a plant native to Sri Lanka, so for the highest quality cinnamon always be sure to check the country of origin.
