Organic Vietnamese cinnamon
Cinnamon is the world's most popular spice. You'll recognize its familiar taste and aroma in cakes, breads, cookies, and pies, dumplings, puddings, pastries and ice cream. It's common in savory dishes too - soups, chutneys, catsup, pickles, squash, vinegars and meat glazes - and hot drinks like cider, coffee, tea and cocos.

If you want daily high-doses of cinnamon for blood sugar control, use "True Cinnamon" otherwise known as "Ceylon Cinnamon". That gives you the benefits of cinnamon without the coumarin.
Vietnamese cinnamon should probably be used sparingly, as a culinary treat on the occasional dish, and not in high doses with everything you drink.
Edit: Unfortunately, Amazon edited out the URL which was the entire basis for this post. The linked web page contains a chart from a University of Mississippi study on coumarin that documents the following coumarin content of various cinnamons:
Coumarin Content | Type of Cinnamon
0.017 g/kg | Ceylon Cinnamon, True Cinnamon. Mexican Cinnamon
2.15 g/kg | Indonesian Cinnamon, Korintje Cinnamon, Padang Cassia
6.97 g/kg | Saigon cinnamon, Vietnamese cassia. Vietnamese cinnamon
0.31 g/kg | Cassia Cinnamon or Chinese Cinnamon
Note that Vietnamese cinnamon in this particular sample had almost 23 times as much coumarin as cassia cinnamon!!! Cassia is the one that is most commonly sold in the United States, and most health recommendations are to avoid ingesting large amounts of cassia in favor of "Ceylon / True Cinnamon". So the Vietnamese stuff is off the charts in terms of coumarin content, and I would guess it should be used sparingly for occasional cuisine, not as a daily source for large quantities.
I purchased both the Ceylon and Vietnamese, and it's the Ceylon I will be using daily.
I thought I'd never get through a pound of cinnamon. But I found that I add this to more recipes than ever before because it is so good! Time to order more!

Note that there are two different plants used for cinnamon. The first type, which is true cinnamon, is used mostly in Europe, while the second type is used in Asia and the Americas. This is of the second type. I tried the variety used in Europe, and it has a more woody taste, and is also less strong tasting than even the 1% or 2% type you normally get in stores in the U.S. It just isn't what I normally think of when I think about cinnamon. This brand however is what you would dream of if you were to dream about cinnamon.
Cinnamon Powder, Vietnamese (5% oil) 1 lb. - Bulk
Its strong cinnamon..... Its got a bite to it which makes your taste buds wake up and notice. I have a few ounces in an old jar, made up a new batch of pumpkin spice blend and the remainder is sealed and in the freezer for long time storage.
The first taste confirmed it. This is the real deal. Strong, fresh, pungent *concentrated* cinnamon -- I love it! That it's also certified organic is a plus.
Favorite use: I add about a quarter of a teaspoon to green tea to spice up the flavor. There's a nice taste synergy that goes on between the two.
If you're missing the real deal as I was, hesitate no longer. THIS is cinnamon you've been looking for.
