Inside The super Spice
Organic Ceylon CINNAMON
Straight from the Source
Also known as true cinnamon it is the tan-brown dried bark from the inner part of the Cinnamomum verum tree.
Cinnamon has been used by humans for thousands of years dating back to Middle Kingdom Egypt employing it as a perfuming agent for embalming.
It became a status symbol in Medieval Europe after being introduced by Arab merchants leading to several conquests to find the spice’s mysterious source.
Cinnamomum verum is a bushy evergreen tree of the laurel family (Lauraceae) that is native to Ceylon, which changed its name to Sri Lanka in 1972.
Cinnamon is found in the inner bark of the cinnamon tree. The bark dries into curly segments called “quills.” Quills are identified as cinnamon sticks.
