One of the most common kitchen spices, Cinnamon has a sweet, spicy flavour & woody fragrance and is used in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes.

The Variety

Cinnamon is the dried bark of the trees in the evergreen family of the genus Cinnamomum. Both the common varieties, Cinnamon & Cassia, are from different families of the same genus. Cinnamon is defined as the dried bark of the genus Cinnamomum and it is common usage to call them both “cinnamon”, with a majority of the market being of cassia origin.

For Your Appreciation

We have chosen our cinnamon for its punchy flavour that is demanded in kiwi baking & cooking. It has a more complex flavour than inferior Chinese Cassia.
Ceylon Cinnamon has a milder, more floral flavour that adds subtle depth to traditional Indian curries.

Cinnamon was highly prized in ancient times and has had documented use through history.

 

 

Additional Information

 
Health Benefits
  • Can also help cure urinary tract infections, and some evidence suggests, prevent stomach ulcers.
  • Cassia is higher in coumarin but is perfectly safe as a baking cooking ingredient where it is appreciated for it's spicy full flavour.
  • Cinnamon is an antiseptic and has been used medicinally for thousands of years to soothe stomach irritation, fight tooth decay and gum disease
  • Cinnamon is known to be high in anti-oxidants, just one teaspoon of ground cinnamon is said to have as many antioxidants as 1/2 cup of blueberries!
  • Cinnamon is rich in the natural polyphenols, compounds that can stabilize blood sugar and help ward off cravings for sweets!
  • Cinnamon tea is warming and is said to increase blood flow, which increases circulation and helps boost metabolism, as well as aid in the reduction of inflammation.
  • For Cinnamon Tea; break a cinnamon stick and steep for 10 minutes in a cup of boiling water. Sweeten with a little honey if required.
  • If you are using cinnamon for health benefits alone, I recommend sourcing Ceylon Cinnamon due to its low content of the compound coumarin.
  • In addition to stabilizing blood sugar levels, cinnamon may also improve insulin function, which could lower the risk of diabetes.
  • It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties so it may help fight winter colds.
