You may think all cinnamon is alike, but once your tastebuds get a taste of ceylon, you'll never want to go back to the usual cassia cinnamon! Ceylon cinnamon, also known as "true cinnamon," comes from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum Zeylanicum tree and is light brown and delicately sweet in flavor. Ceylon also has an entirely unique set of health benefits, including potentially inhibiting the formation of the proteins known to cause Alzheimer's disease, fighting off bacteria, and balancing blood sugar levels in diabetics.

Selection Process

For best results, buy organic ceylon cinnamon in powdered form.
