Ceylon Cinnamon Powder | True Cinnamon from Sri Lanka
Ceylon cinnamon powder, a rare, organic culinary spectacular
Consumed mostly in Europe and South America, Ceylon Cinnamon is the rarest and most valuable form of cinnamon in the world today. It is, at times, referred to as true cinnamon but do not be mistaken, this is not like any cinnamon you have ever tasted. Its flavor and aroma profile is delicate, sweet and slightly citrus. It is entirely different from other types of cinnamon commonly found or consumed in the United States.
Why is it called "true" cinnamon and how does it differ from other types of ground cinnamon? There are many types of cinnamon, all derived from the bark of trees belonging to the Cinnamomum genus. Most of these types of cinnamon are Cassia cinnamon, however—not considered true cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon comes from the C. Verum tree, native to Sri Lanka. It is the original cinnamon and is prized by epicureans worldwide.
Cassia cinnamon is a merely a substitution for the real thing; it has a harsher flavor and lacks the sweetness of true cinnamon. It also contains large quantities of coumarin, which is a naturally-occurring flavoring substance that can be toxic when ingested in large quantities. While coumarin is also found in Ceylon cinnamon, it only has trace amounts.
So if flavor and health are important to you, avoid the more common, Cassia variety. Our Organic Cinnamon is available to purchase in both ground cinnamon powder and 5-inch Ceylon cinnamon quills. It is the truest form of cinnamon, beautifully scented, packs a delicate punch, and is a phenomenal addition to culinary delights.
Try it in place of any recipe you previously used Cassia cinnamon in and you'll see why our ground cinnamon from Sri Lanka is superior to 90% of store-bought Cassia cinnamon powder.
True Ground Cinnamon from Sri Lanka

Ceylon Cinnamon was Once More Precious than Gold (aren’t we glad we are not paying those prices)!
Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to humanity. It was mentioned in the Bible, used in ancient Egypt, and has caused countries to go to war. Cinnamon was once so highly treasured that it was considered more precious than gold for a period of time. We sure can't imagine our kitchen or pantry without it.

I ordered this with Vanilla beans. I didn't expect how good this is..because my focus was only on the vanilla beans. BUT! I used this cinnamon powder for baking and admitted excellent quality of this powder. I use cinnamon powder a lot, but only one bag I ordered..omg... I live in South Korea. used the cheapest delivery service, so took about 3 weeks. Thank you!

Cinnamon, like it should be
Definitely different from what we normally get sold as Cinnamon. I have it every day on or in something! [Amazon Review]
what a cinnamon
the difference in this cinnamon was amazing. it is nothing like the cinnamon we buy in the store. mild and sweet smelling with a lighter taste. if you breathed the other cinnamon you could hardly breath, not so with Ceylon cinnamon. in researching cinnamon for diabetes I found this has a minute percentage of coumerin than the other cinnamons which is what a person would want as it is a blood thinner. plus who doesn't love cinnamon and healthy cinnamon would be the best.

Thank you for the well thought review. We value your business and appreciate the feedback.
