Ceylon cinnamon aka “true cinnamon” can be much more difficult to find on the market than the regular Cassia cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is an amazing flavoring addition to your recipes, but it also has extremely powerful medicinal properties.
What is Ceylon Cinnamon Powder aka “true cinnamon”?
Ceylon Cinnamon is dried bark of an evergreen plant called Cinnamomum zealanicum that belongs to the family Laurraceae. It is a powerful spice used for health benefits and culinary purposes for thousands of years. Often it is not known that Cassia cinnamon isn’t that good for your body. You heard it right, not all types of cinnamon are equally beneficial for you. Although both types of cinnamon are healthy, Cassia cinnamon contains much larger quantities of a toxin called coumarin that is harmful for your liver when consumed too much.
Where does our cinnamon come from?
