About This Product

The two most commonly used in cooking are Ceylon and Cassia Cinnamon. What some of you may not know is that most cinnamon you see at the supermarkets is more often than not Cassia Cinnamon, also known as ‘Chinese’ or ‘Fake’ Cinnamon.

Cassia is the cheapest version on the market and is cultivated in China and Indonesia. It’s not as delicate, sweet or subtle as Ceylon, which comes from a small tree native to Sri Lanka.

What sets Cassia apart from the Changing Habits Organic Ceylon Cinnamon is the fact that most Cassia varieties are manufactured with an industrial grinding process which dilutes and damages not only the nutritional value but also oxidises the naturally occurring oils within the cinnamon. Have you ever noticed a bitter aftertaste from store bought cinnamon? That is because of this. The Changing Habits Organic Cinnamon has been air cured and dried in the sun before being ground into a powder.

I’m sure some of you are wondering why it’s important to distinguish between Cassia and Ceylon Cinnamon. Cinnamon from Ceylon is noticeably different to Cassia Cinnamon and these differences could impact your health. Cassia Cinnamon has been found to have high levels (up to a thousand times more) of a component called coumarin.

Some research has found that coumarin, a naturally occurring toxin, may cause liver and kidney problems when taken regularly over a long period of time and consumed at high levels. To me the answer is clear; if you cook with cinnamon it’s imperative to choose a quality source from Ceylon to reap the nutritional health benefits it provides.

- Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants, calcium, iron and minerals.
- Helps to regulate blood sugar as it aids insulin activity, thereby helping the body to process sugar more effectively
- Has antimicrobial properties
- Has anti-clotting properties
- May help inhibit Alzheimer’s disease
- Prevents the growth of fungi and yeasts
- Increases blood flow to the brain which improves mental alertness
