Cinnamon Sticks 6", 1/4 lb


Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the bark of trees native to Asia and the Middle East, the grade of which depends on the species. One of the most popular spices in the world, cinnamon is used in virtually every world cuisine. Whole sticks are used in mulling spice mixes and potpourri, as well as in arts and crafts. The ground spice is use in baked goods, desserts and as a flavoring in teas, specialty coffees and other beverages. Cinnamon is also used in perfumery and to make natural blushers and foundation powders.

Cinnamon has been used as a flavoring agent and medicinal for centuries, especially in Asia. The presence of coumarin, however, can be problematic in high doses or in certain individuals with a history of liver disease.

Cinnamomum cassia, otherwise known as Chinese cinnamon, contains less volatile oil and therefore less coumarin than other varieties, but has a sweeter flavor.
