This signature fall and holiday spice can be found in almost every kitchen and is as versatile as it is good for you. Cinnamon is one of those signature scents that spurs many fond memories all over the world.
Not all cinnamon is created equal. Ceylon and cassia are the two most common varieties of cinnamon. Native to Sri Lanka and Madagascar, the intoxicating cinnamon scent from fresh baked cinnamon rolls or bread typically belongs to the cassia variety. Ceylon sticks, “true cinnamon,” often used for flavoring a comforting mug of warmed cider, are made from the inner layers of cinnamon bark. Creating a warm, round and beautiful flavor profile and soothing aroma.
Cinnamon’s use is steadily on the rise. A touch of this amazing spice goes a long way in sweet confections, home fragrance, crunchy snacks, holiday drinks, craft beers and even in beauty products. Loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and endless medicinal values, adding cinnamon into your product formulation is a sure-win year-round.
