What is true cinnamon?
Cinnamon is a widely used spice throughout cooking but many people might not be aware that they aren’t using the proper product. Indeed, “true cinnamon” is actually a lot rarer than you may think but the flavours are much richer. This form of cinnamon mostly comes from the Cinnamomum Zeylancium plant which is native to the mountains and rainforests of Sri Lanka and is known primarily for its health benefits.
Studies have shown that Ceylon cinnamon has properties that can help those with diabetes and high blood pressure. A lot of this is due to the low levels of coumarin - a natural blood thinner which can help reduce blood sugar levels when ingested in small amounts.
The Sri Lankan form of cinnamon is generally a tan brown colour and is much more fragile when preparing it or grounding it up into a powder. Unlike other types of cinnamon, it gives off a much sweeter aroma making it ideal for use in pastries or desserts.
