Our Organic Ground Cassia Cinnamon is derived from the cinnamomum burmamannii species of trees, and is the most common type of cinnamon spice used in the world today This globally popular variety of our all natural cinnamon is known for its powerful aromatic qualities, spicy hotness, and pungent flavors. Physically this powder is characterized by its dark reddish color differing from the ceylon variety of cinnamon, which is tan in color. These sticks have been sourced direct and minimally processed in our gluten-free facility to ensure that it achieves its maximum potential for both fragrance and flavor.
This famously flavorful spice derived from the cinnamonum species of trees, has long been celebrated for both its culinary and medicinal properties. Unlike many spices made from the fruits or vegetation of plants, cinnamon differs in that it is made up of the inner bark of the tree. Due to this, the process for obtaining this product is quite unique, requiring the removal of the trees outer bark, followed by scraping the inner bark, by hand, into long narrow strips, and finally allowing it to dry. The unique processing and global transportation of this taste-bud-tantalizing bark has been practiced for thousands of years, with cultures all over the world celebrating the novel flavor it lends to foods and utilizing it for a range of medicinal purposes. This beloved spice has even played a role as a spiritual relic, such as the Hebrew Bible's account of Moses being commanded to mix cinnamon into his holy anointing oil.
This spice has for centuries been used by cultures all over the world to help aid a range of medical conditions. Today, much of the claimed benefits lack scientific evidence, but it has been found to help lower blood sugar and cholesterol. It has also become a popular ingredient in home remedies for a range of topical ailments, from curing acne to fighting infection this likely due to cinnamon's powerful antimicrobial properties.
