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 flavour of this unique spice makes it ideal sprinkled in your morning tea, coffee, porridge or smoothie, or added to savoury curries and sauces.

Meet The Supplier
Pure Food Essentials was born out of a passion for turmeric. After growing this superfood spice organically on his Sunshine Coast hinterland property, founder Peter was inspired to take a trip to India, the natural home of so many spices, to learn more about turmeric production. After three days on tour meeting growers, local farm owners and processors they discovered just how deep the relationships were. Producers helped local farmers gain organic certification, provided education (both agricultural and for the children of growers) and medical support, helped meet transport requirements and offered financial aid during hard times. A true mutual loyalty and trust was formed and today forms the foundation of Pure Food Essentials.
Today PFE still buys their spices from these same ethical producers. Certified Organic by NASAA (National Association of Sustainable Agriculture Australia) their products are tracked all the way from their source by strict organic certification practices. Once delivered to the warehouse on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, products undergo a final quality check, ensuring a high quality, fresh product.
