Varieties and origins

Cinnamon is a very old spice that originally came from Asia. Cinnamon trees are grown on plantations and harvested immediately after the rainy season, as the bark is then fresh and moist and can be easily peeled off. The quality of the cinnamon is based on the texture and color of its quills.

    Why is the price fluctuating?

    Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.

Ceylon cinnamon sticks 500 g - a look behind the scenes

zimt-sri-lanka

Cultivated in Sri Lanka

We source our cinnamon sticks from Sri Lanka, a country known under the name Ceylon until 1972. The earlier designation of origin gave the noble cinnamon variety its name.

The "true" cinnamon plant

Ceylon cinnamon comes from an evergreen tree that can grow to be six to ten metres tall. If you rub its leathery, oval leaves, they smell like cloves, while its inconspicuous flowers have white-green tones.

Tree bark

Once the cinnamon tree has grown, its outermost bark is peeled off and fermented in the shade, a process that gives it its unique aroma. Then the bark is dried in the sun and voilà!, Cinnamon sticks are ready. Ceylon cinnamon differs from Chinese cinnamon, also known as cassia, in that its bark is made up of fine layers that roll up from both sides, resembling a cigar.

A super old spice

There is evidence that cinnamon was grown in Ceylon as early as the 1st century, when it was sometimes used as a medicine, and we know that both the Greeks and the Romans knew Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon well. Unfortunately, culinary and medicinal knowledge of spices was largely lost until the Middle Ages, only accessible to a fraction of the population because spices were so exorbitantly priced. It was not until the 15th century that cinnamon came to Central Europe through Portuguese and later Dutch traders. The story of cinnamon, which comes from Ceylon, is shaped by Medieval reigns of terror, monopolies, colonial powers, and conflicts of interest.

Last steps!

Once the long drying process has come to its end, cinnamon sticks are packed up and shipped to our warehouse, where they wait for you to order them and to be then delivered to your home.

Questions about questions Ceylon cinnamon sticks 500 g

Why are these Ceylon cinnamon sticks special?

The coumarin content of Ceylon cinnamon is under 50 mg per kilo, which is a lot lower than the one of the Chinese cinnamon called Cassia. Therefore is Ceylon cinnamon a great resource for cinnamon lovers for whom is hard to use this wonderful spice in moderation. Moreover, the bark of Ceylon cinnamon is not as thick as Cassia's: this means that Ceylon cinnamon is more aromatic. You can try soaking it in hot water with honey to make a delicious tea, or prepare a fancy-tasting punch.

Where do these Ceylon cinnamon sticks come from?

We purchase our cinnamon sticks from Sri Lanka, where this type of cinnamon originates from: Ceylon is actually nothing but the old name Sri Lankas.

What is the difference between Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon?

The scientific name of Ceylon cinnamon is Cinnamomum verum, which means true cinnamon; its taste is more refined and aromatic than the stronger Cassia. For a regular consumption, Ceylon cinnamon is better, as its coumarin content is much lower, making it therefore easier for you to stay under the recommended daily intake.

According to their nutritional table, 100 g of Ceylon cinnamon sticks have about 272 calories.

Are Ceylon cinnamon sticks vegan?

Yes, cinnamon is naturally vegan.

How much of this Ceylon cinnamon is an appropriate and reccomended dosage?

The maximum coumarin dosage is 0,1 mg per kg of body weight per day; an excessive coumarin intake can lead, especially in particularly sensitive individuals, to liver damage. Our Ceylon cinnamon sticks have 50 mg/kg.

Do these Ceylon cinnamon sticks have gluten?

No, Ceylon cinnamon is gluten-free.

Can babies eat Ceylon cinnamon?

As their body weights very little, you should be very careful to not exceed the daily coumarin dosage, if you want to give your baby some Ceylon cinnamon.

Is Ceylon cinnamon poisonous for dogs?

Cinnamon should not be eaten by your dog, as it can be dangerous for its health. We recommend you keep our Ceylon cinnamon sticks out of your dog's reach.
