Our Main Product - True Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been known from remote antiquity, and it was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and other great potentates. Cinnamon is native to the Indian subcontinent. Cinnamon captured the headlines lately, mostly because of its use as health product as well as the sharp price advance during recent months. So this may be an opportune time to take a closer look at one of the oldest spices known to man.
There has been confusion between Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) and Cassia (Cinnamomum Cassia) – this misunderstanding goes back over 4000 years and still exists today.  

Cinnamomum Zeylanicum or True Cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and is very mild. The name cinnamon comes from Greek kinnámōmon, itself ultimately from Phoenician. The botanical name for the spice Cinnamomum Zeylanicum is derived from Sri Lanka`s former (colonial) name, Ceylon. Ceylon Cinnamon has no coumarin, and very safe.  

Cassia. is from Indonesia, China or Vietnam. Cassia`s flavour, however, is less delicate than that of true cinnamon; for this reason, the less expensive cassia is sometimes called "Bastard Cinnamon" or “Chinese Cinnamon”. European health agencies have warned against consuming high amounts of cassia bark, because of its coumarin content. Matara and Galle are lower altitude areas in Sri Lanka where the best quality Cinnamomum c. is grown. In general, all our Cinnamon is from Sri Lanka.  

Cinnamon is harvested by growing the tree for two years and then coppicing it. The next year, about a dozen shoots will form from the roots. These shoots are then stripped of their bark, which is left to dry. Only the thin (0.5 mm) inner bark is used; the outer woody portion is removed, leaving metre-long cinnamon strips that curl into rolls ("quills") on drying; each dried quill comprises strips from numerous shoots packed together. These quills are then cut into 5–10 cm lengths for sale. The higher the oil content, the better.   It is the oil that determines the strength of the flavor. The best quality bark is taken from the trunk of the tree, lesser qualities from branches and broken pieces. Volatile oil content ranges from 0.5% to 1%.  

Our Cinnamon is freshly ground in Sri Lanka. A small percentage of oil is lost during the grinding process. Most of the cinnamon producers do not always clearly indicate whether the oil content they claim is before or after grinding. We will be glad to provide you with a certificate of analysis for each lot. We want you to get the best quality Ceylon Cinnamon for your application.
