Ground Vietnamese Cinnamon 

Premium Saigon cinnamon powder is not for the faint of heart when it comes to spice level. Cinnamon powder from Vietnam, also known as Saigon cinnamon, is a warm, spicy, kick you in the back of the throat type of cinnamon that is known to pack the heat.  Higher in violate oils than all other cinnamons this variety of cinnamon is a spicy cinnamon lover's dream come true. 

When to use Saigon cinnamon instead of Ceylon cinnamon

Saigon cinnamon packs a stronger punch than Ceylon cinnamon. The intensity in flavor makes it a great option for heavy dishes like stews and curries. Ceylon cinnamon is much more delicate in flavor and is well-suited for simple baked goods and other dishes with few ingredients. Saigon cinnamon does contain higher amounts of coumarin, so if you are looking to reduce your intake, opt for Ceylon, which has the lowest coumarin content of all cinnamon varieties. 

Is Saigon cinnamon Cassia cinnamon?

Yes. Saigon cinnamon is a type of Cassia cinnamon, but it is different than the Cassia cinnamon found in most grocery stores. The most common cinnamon is Chinese cinnamon. The oil concentration in Saigon is much higher, though, due to the optimal growing climate in Vietnam. The higher level of volatile oils brings forth a much more potent flavor and aroma than the Chinese variety. It's these oils that make Saigon cinnamon the more favorable variety for chefs across the world. 

*Our Saigon cinnamon powder and quills have both been certified kosher by EarthKosher, a reputable kosher certification company and have been grown by farmers using organic principles.

Tasty & Aromatic

Being retired I have come to love baking and cooking even more. I purchase quality ingredients whenever possible. I have never been disappointed with Slo-Food products. I love this cinnamon and let's face it... Everyone loves baked goods made with cinnamon. I use this cinnamon and my home-made vanilla for yummy French toast. This said, I do buy in larger quantities from you than offered in local grocery. AND free shipping sweetens the deal!

Best cinnamon ever

Once you try this cinnamon you will never go back to the store bought brand. It is simply wonderful and a real game changer. I use it all the time . I’ve ordered it for some special friends and they are so happy I did. One special treat is to use it in coffee and tea. Try it - no need for milk. Don’t buy the brand in the grocery store. I did and the comparison is is Terrible .

Comparison of cinnamon

Very good because I wanted to try Saigon versus Ceylon Cinnamon. Could definitely taste a difference and surprised that my favorite was the Saigon cinnamon. Richer flavor and aroma both plain and on apples. Will try on oatmeal and on buns and see if opinion changes.

My new go-to cinnamon!

This cinnamon is wonderful - so much more flavor than I have experienced before with cinnamon. I have used it on oatmeal and also on fresh cut peaches (with ice cream!) and is not overpowering but the flavor really comes thru. I can't wait to try it with cinnamon rolls... I would definitely recommend it!
