ORGANIC CINNAMON POWDER, true, sweet
Botanical name: Cinnamomum verum/Cinnamomum zeylanicum
Origin: Sri Lanka / Vietnam
Production: True cinnamon has several thin layers shaved from the inner bark of the tree, unlike the more common cassia cinnamon, which is thicker and curls from both sides inward.
Qualities: True cinnamon, also known as sweet cinnamon, Xi Lan Rou Gui, Ceylon, or Zeylonicum cinnamon, is a popular spice used in many versatile ways throughout history. Cinnamon is widely popular and known for its slightly sweet, delicious, and spicy warming flavour commonly found in baked goods, teas, and spice mixes.
True cinnamon has a more subtle, delicate, and less sweet flavor than the closely related cassia cinnamon. One of the main differences between these two types of cinnamon is that cassia contains higher concentrations of coumarin, which in high doses, can have a negative impact on liver and kidney health. Otherwise, many of their medicinal qualities are the same, as they are so closely related.
Cinnamon, along with it's exceptional and unique flavor, is a highly valued and multipurpose medicinal herb used for circulatory, respiratory, and expectorant applications. It is also used to aid in the digestive process and enhance metabolic function. Many cultures have used cinnamon in their health practices topically and internally throughout history.
Common Use: True cinnamon can be used in a very wide range of applications from sprinkling on your oatmeal or cereal, in baked goods, smoothies, as an extract or tea, or ingested in capsules. Its earthy yet appealing flavor makes it a staple in almost every spice cabinet.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Cinnamon true/sweet powder Sri Lanka
When I opened this cinnamon bag (I had purchased it 3 months before ) I expected it should still smell and taste like cinnamon but instead tasted like cardboard with absolutely no smell. If you want cinnamon that tastes and smells like cinnamon don't buy this one!!!! They told me at OM that this cinnamon is up to their standards. So again I say if you want cinnamon that tastes and smells like cinnamon this is not the one to buy!!!
I love this company. Ships fast, lovely customer service.
Great product. Fast delivery
cinnamon - true from OM in bulk. Google how important this little spice is to your overall health, i buy it from om in bulk, the real stuff not the grocery store variety that should not be allowed to carry the same name as it onlt tastes sort of like, but no mrdicinsl value. i have a little covered dish with tiny silver spoon and sprinkle it on almost everything, every day!
i am sorry. my left hand and arm is in a cast and if you know how to dump my comments into the proper section, go for it, deleting this comment. sorry for my mistake. OM Rocks!
Super tasty, sweet and wonderful!
I love Om foods, service and food both excellent!!
