Product Description

Frontier Natural Products - Cinnamon Powdered Ceylon Organic Fair Trade Certified - 1 lb. (453 g) Frontier Natural Products Organic Powdered Cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka and Fair Trade Certified. To ensure fresh flavor that's always pure and natural, Frontier's spices are quality tested and freshness dated. Cinnamon - that most popular of spices - comes from the bark of an evergreen tree. Cinnamon's sweet, spicy and warm fragrance adds pungent sweetness to your favorite baked goodies. You can also use it to add a depth of flavor to savory dishes as well. Origin: Sri Lanka Botanical name: Cinnamomum verum Though often used interchangeably, cassia and cinnamon are not the same. Cinnamomum cassia (grown primarily in China and Indonesia) is reddish-brown and pungently sweet, while Cinnamomum zeylanicum (from Sri Lanka and India) is buff-colored and mild. Cassia is usually preferred for its more intense color and flavor. Korintji (thick quill cinnamon) and Batavia (thin quill cinnamon) are two types of C. cassia . Korintji comes from a higher altitude than the Batavian and has a slightly more intense reddish-brown color and sharp cinnamon flavor; it's considered the better variety. There are many species of cassia, including C. aromaticum (from China), C. burmannii (from Indonesia), and C. loureirii (from Vietnam or Saigon). True cinnamon, also known as Ceylon cinnamon, is obtained from C. verum, grown in Sri Lanka. It's tan and very mild. To harvest cinnamon, the inside pulp of the evergreen is scraped out, then ground, and the quill pieces (cinnamon sticks) are selected for drying and grading according to size, color and quality. Trimmings and waste pieces are sold as cinnamon chips or used to distill the essential oil. The cinnamon is then graded according to quality. Grade A cinnamon has the highest oil content and the most intense flavor and aroma.

Cinnamon complements fruits like apricots, cherries, apples, blueberries and oranges. Vegetables, too--especially carrots, spinach and onions--are enhanced by ci

There is a good explanation of the difference between true cinnamon and cassia cinnamon from this site:
[...]

Rather than reinvent the wheel, I am quoting some of the best of the above article here which helped me make the decision to buy this product...

"Scientifically speaking, there is only one true cinnamon, which is most commonly called "Ceylon cinnamon," and comes from the plant Cinnamomum zeylanicum. The other type of cinnamon which you find mostly in the grocery stores is called cassia cinnamon. If the label just says cinnamon, it is most probably cassia cinnamon. Why is this important?"

"The term 'cassia' never refers to Ceylon cinnamon but rather to other species of cinnamon, including Cinnamomum cassia (alternatively called Cinnamomum aromaticaum) and Cinnamomum burmannii. While most simply referred to as "cassia," you'll often find Cinnamomum aromaticaum being referred to as 'Chinese cinnamon' or 'Saigon cinnamon,' and you'll find Cinnamomum burmannii being called "Java cinnamon" or 'Padang cassia'."

"Ceylon cinnamon is typically more expensive than any of the cassia versions, and it is also the cinnamon more closely associated with potential health benefits involving blood sugar regulation. To me, cassia cinnamon is stronger tasting while Ceylon cinnamon is more delicate."

"What true cinnamon and cassia do not have in common is their coumarin content. Coumarins are naturally occurring plant components that can have strong anticoagulant properties. Because our blood needs to maintain its ability to coagulate in times of injury, excessive intake of coumarins over a prolonged period of time can pose health risks.

I am a type 2 diabetic and it is under excellent control. Nevertheless, I'm always looking for ways to give me a hand with it. I read that Ceylon cinnamon was the 'real' thing so I purchased a pound of it last summer and have been using it. I did not change anything else in my diet. Two weeks ago I had my six-month check-up and my 3-month levels were WAY down. We were all quite surprised and although I do get outside and do more work in the summer, which might help a bit, it has not helped to that degree in years past. I'm thinking it was the cinnamon, which I use quite a bit in cooking and in the breads I make (I make all our own). Yes, it's got a great taste, but I'm afraid I'm not much of a gourmet when it comes to cinnamon -- I like it in whatever form it comes in! I am thinking, though, that there really is something to the claims being made for this stuff in terms of blood sugar control. I'm ordering more now.

I read a lot of conflicting info on which was the BEST cinnamon (I'm talking about taste not the health benefits). It was down to the Ceylon and the Korintje. I was looking for the taste closest to Cinnabon's Makara® Cinnamon. I took 2 photos showing 3 different cinnamon. (See photos)

I made sure to buy the same brand of the 2. What I find:

1. The cinnamon in the front is Kirkland brand and IMO equal to the others. Once I go thru all this cinnamon I will most likely go back to it.

2. The Korintje is a darker cinnamon leaning towards the red side. Kirkland is more brown. Ceylon had a yellowish brown hue to it.

3. The Korintje had a sweeter taste (think cinnamon rolls, apple pie, coffee cake). Ceylon seems to have a HINT of heat to it (think red hots, big red, cinnamon toothpicks). Though I have read where ppl say the opposite, so this is only my opinion.

4. If you are looking at cinnamon for health benefits. You want the Ceylon. It's lower in coumarin for taking it at therapetic levels. If you are using it for cooking, either will work (you aren't using no where near as much).

5. If you are looking for the closest to the Makara® that would be the Korintje in color and taste.

If I had to pick one of the 2 Frontier cinnamon, I'd go with the Korintje. IMO it's sweeter and the color is more appealing to me. I also mainly bake w/ cinnamon so like the sweeter side.

Update 5/18/13
I mix this w/ the Korintje cinnamon and have found that to be as close as it gets to Cinnabon. Makara Cinnamon from Indonesian mountains is what Cinnabon uses but to my knowledge it is only available to Cinnabon. I have done taste tests of my homemade cinnamon rolls to Cinnabon w/ family, friends and neighbors and surprisingly they always pick MINE as better tasting.

There is no going back. The Ceylon Cinnamon is strong/subtle, sweet/spicy. I've added it to my morning Greek Yoghurt with honey and ground flax seeds. Oh my! I will always buy this!! NO GOING BACK!!!!!

I've been eating "normal" Cinnamon my whole life, and always thought of it as something where you can have too much: it starts being bitter when you add too much, and you need to balance it with sugar after you hit that threshold.

This stuff though, is so mild and almost sweet that I can add half a tablespoon to my milk or protein shake and it just makes it taste better and better, almost like holiday nog. I now crave this stuff to where I suspect that what I figured was a 5-year supply (16 oz) will probably only last me a few months.

Note on packaging: you definitely will want to transfer this to another container for daily use. This spice is so fine that closing the bag causes a cloud of it to shoot out, and slowly settle onto the counter over the next few hours, leaving a brown dusting. I fill a tall spice shaker outdoors or in the sink, and keep the rest sealed in this bag, refilling the spice shaker every month or so.
