Organic Cinnamon Powder
Organic cinnamon powder or cinnamon verum is also known as Ceylon cinnamon, true cinnamon and Sri Lankan cinnamon. It's flavour is more complex and aromatic than Cinnamon cassia. It has been used throughout history as food, medicine, perfume and currency.
Derived from the inner bark of the plant Cinnamomum verum (Ceylon cinnamon), it’s the real deal—known as ‘true’ cinnamon. One of the oldest spices around, cinnamon has long been prized in Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. It was deemed sacred by both the Egyptians and Romans, and even features in the Bible. For these societies, this treasured spice had uses extending beyond food. In fact, it was once considered more precious than gold! Today cinnamon is reaching new levels of awareness and respect, and used to add flavour and goodness to just about anything.
The warming sweet-aromatic flavor of this unique spice makes it ideal sprinkled in your morning tea, coffee, porridge or smoothie, or added to savoury curries and sauces.
