What is Ceylon Cinnamon?

What is Ceylon Cinnamon? Ceylon cinnamon spice is derived from the fragrant bark of a tree that is native to the island nation of Sri Lanka. Ceylon cinnamon benefits are wide ranging. Its unique aroma and delicately pungent taste make it a favourite add-on to a variety of foods ranging from coffee to chocolate and curries. Packed with antioxidants and replete with anti-fungal, antibacterial properties, cinnamon is used extensively in oral and dental hygiene products. It’s also a natural source of antioxidants and finds use as an anti-aging supplement.

Leading Ceylon Cinnamon Exporters

There are a number of types of cinnamon available in the market. However the two popular variants are – Ceylon and Cassia. As the name indicates, Ceylon cinnamon grows exclusively in Ceylon - as Sri Lanka as was earlier known. Recognised as the authentic variety, Ceylon cinnamon exudes a delicate spicy scent and tastes mildly sweet. The Cassia cinnamon on the other hand is a Chinese variety that lacks the superior taste, fragrance and quality of Ceylon cinnamon. No wonder, Cassia cinnamon is priced lower and more commonly available in supermarkets.
