Organic Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks/Powder

About: Ceylon Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Verum) comes from a plant called 'Cinnamomum Zeylanicum blume' which is indigenous to Sri Lanka. The old botanical synonym for the tree, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, is derived from Sri Lanka's former name, Ceylon. Sri Lanka still produces 80–90% of the world's supply of Cinnamomum verum. Ceylon Cinnamon is very different to Cassia Cinnamon and far healthier, primarily because it has low Coumarin levels. Unlike the ubiquitous Cassia Cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon does not damage the liver. It is often called True Cinnamon due to its sophisticated aroma and ability to impart impeccable taste to many recipes. 

Our organic Ceylon Cinnamon sticks (quills) and Ceylon Cinnamon powder are obtained from the inner bark of Ceylon Cinnamon tree. Ceylon Cinnamon is the expensive, rare, safe and recommended variety over all other varieties of Cinnamon including Cassia, Korintje and Saigon. Ceylon Cinnamon sticks are soft, rolled like a cigar with multiple thin strips of cinnamon bark while the much harder cassia has a single scroll-like curl. Ceylon Cinnamon has a tan color compared to the dark red-brown of cassia Cinnamon. The Cinnamon sticks should also have minimal foxing, which is a term used to describe reddish-brown warps caused by dampness. The more foxing there is, the lower the quality of the Cinnamon. Each grade of Cinnamon has certain foxing specifications. The Cinnamon sticks we offer are the 'Alba Grade' Ceylon Cinnamon sticks (5 inch cut), which is considered the best in the market. Our premium quality Ceylon Cinnamon sticks add just the right amount of texture,  sophistication and depth of flavor to any recipe. Its subtle and mild taste with citrus hints makes it the perfect blender which brings together all the other ingredients whether it is spices or herbs to create an incredible taste sensation. It requires extremely skilled craftsmanship to extract Ceylon Cinnamon, but the end result is something appreciated for the taste as well as health benefits. 

 Ceylon Cinnamon Benefits: Apart from its flavor and exotic aroma, Ceylon Cinnamon offers many health benefits. The oils found in Ceylon cinnamon are thought to reduce spasms, reduce gas (flatulence), stimulate the appetite, and fight bacteria and fungi. Ceylon Cinnamon might also decrease blood pressure and blood lipids. Ceylon cinnamon chemicals might work like insulin to lower blood sugar. Ceylon Cinnamon has been shown to reduce some of the bad effects of eating high-fat foods. This may help promote weight loss. Its effect on blood glucose levels can also help in losing weight.
