What is Ceylon Cinnamon:
Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum), also called “real cinnamon”, a top-quality spice coveted in ancient Egypt for its medicinal properties and culinary uses. Ceylon cinnamon is not the same as the most famous cinnamon cassia found in most grocery stores. Unlike cassia cinnamon, which usually comes from China or Indonesia. Ceylon cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) and characterizes by quality, taste and health benefits.
Ceylon’s light Ceylon cinnamon powder is slightly fragrant and has a subtle, complex and slightly sweet taste without the spicy bite of spicy cassia. For this reason, Ceylon Organic Cinnamon Powder is more desirable in baking or making light meals where a less pronounced taste is desired. Ceylon cinnamon is usually available in the form of cinnamon sticks or cinnamon powder.
Cultivating and Harvesting Ceylon
Blue Lily Organics Ceylon cinnamon powder online has been carefully cultivated in the same way for generations. The inner bark is peeled off and laid out to dry in long strips called “quills”. Finally, the dried quills ground to produce Ceylon cinnamon powder.
When the cinnamon tree is two years old, it prunes until it reaches a stump that sprouts new sprouts straight from the roots the following year. These new branches harvested and the outer bark removed to expose the soft inner bark. These then solved by striking the branch evenly with a hammer (or traditionally a brass rod).
Nutritious and Medicinal Components of Ceylon Cinnamon
Organic Cinnamon Cinnamon Powder contains therapeutic essential oils such as cinnamon aldehyde, which is responsible for the familiar aroma of cinnamon, and eugenol, a fragrance oil with anesthetic and antiseptic properties. Ceylon cinnamon powder also provides other important nutrients, including fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, thiamine, and pantothenic acid. It also contains a variety of minerals, including calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, magnesium, and iodine.
Cinnamon Powder is also one of the best sources of antioxidant foods. Perhaps the most important reason for using Ceylon cinnamon powder is that its cassia cinnamon counterpart is a known source of coumarin, a natural but toxic substance that linked to kidney and liver problems.
