Organic Ceylon Cinnamon Powder, or "true cinnamon," has long been prized as a cooking spice, with a flavor that's milder and sweeter than the traditional cassia cinnamon typically found on grocery store shelves. Native to Sri Lanka and southern parts of India, this organic ceylon cinnamon has a lighter color and smoother texture. This organic ceylon cinnamon powder is directly from the processor in Sri Lanka and is organic and fair trade certified.
One of the main differences between these varieties is their differing levels of coumarin, a naturally occurring chemical that can be harmful with prolonged intake. Adults should avoid eating more than 1 teaspoon of Cassia cinnamon per day or opt for Ceylon cinnamon, instead. Ceylon cinnamon contains only a negligible amount of coumarin, while Cassia cinnamon contains about 25x more.
Ceylon cinnamon also has a milder, sweeter taste than Cassia cinnamon
