What is Organic Cinnamon?
Organic Cinnamon packs intense, earthy flavors and is ideal for all types of savory dishes. Because of its versatility, cinnamon is a popular spice used in a number of different cultures.
The use of cinnamon dates back from as early as 2000 BC in Ancient Egypt. The two most common forms, cassia and verum, originate from China and Sri Lanka respectively. Verum, also known as “true cinnamon,” has many health benefits and is the less common of the two. Cassia is likely the kind you’ll see in most North American kitchen cabinets.
Organic Cinnamon comes from QAI certified cinnamon trees - trees grown in specific conditions as set out by the National Organic Program. Cinnamon spice comes from the inner bark of the cinnamon tree and is then processed for everyday use.
The characteristic of cinnamon is a complex combination of a slightly sweet, delicate, warming and spicy flavor. This versatile spice can be used in a variety of applications, including tea, baking, cereal or even ingested in capsules.
