Ceylon Cinnamon or "True Cinnamon"
This variant is currently sold out
Spice Origin Ceylon Cinnamon is "true cinnamon" sourced directly from farmers in Sri Lanka. Ceylon Cinnamon is relatively rare and is graded as the fourth most expensive spice in the world. 80%-90% of the world’s production comes from Sri Lanka and should not be confused with Cinnamon Cassia which predominantly comes from Indonesia, China and Vietnam.
Cinnamomum verum and Cinnamomum cassia are totally different spices. The major difference is coumarin content of each spice. C. verum contains ultra-low coumarin content compared to cassia and its varieties. In 2006, Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) has warned against regular usage of cassia, due to its higher coumarin content.
