FAQ: Organic True Cinnamon Powder

Sunday, 1 January 2017  |  Admin

We thought it would be useful to publish a blog entry with answers to questions we are often asked about our organic true cinnamon powder (Ceylon). We feel it is important for our customers to have as much information about our products as possible.                                                                                        

Is your cinnamon organic?  We only sell organic cinnamon powder. 

Are you organically certified? Yes. Our organic cinnamon & and all of our other products are organically certified by the Soil Association. This means we buy only from organically certified farms and are subject to spot checks (by the Soil Association) which require us to prove that the exact amount of any product sold to the consumer can be traced back to product we import from those farms.

What are the ingredients? Our organic true cinnamon powder is 100% organic ground cinnamon - nothing is added or removed during processing. 

Where is your cinnamon grown? It is grown on organic farms in Sri Lanka & Madagascar. Cinnamon powder comes from the ground reddish-brown inner bark of several evergreen trees from the genus cinnamomum, part of the Lauraceae family of plants. 

What does 'true' cinnamon powder (Ceylon) mean? True cinnamon powder (Ceylon) refers to a particular species of cinnamon called Cinnamomum Verum, which is grown mostly in Sri Lanka, but also India, Madagascar & Brazil. When we use the word Ceylon in our listings we are referring to this species. 

What's the difference between Cassia and true cinnamon (Ceylon)? There are hundreds of types of cinnamon but the main two species of cinnamon, sold commercially, are true cinnamon (Ceylon) and Cassia. They have a similar flavour but Ceylon tends to be sweeter with a finer texture. Ceylon is rarer and generally seen as superior. However, some people prefer Cassia and it's the variety your supermarket will most likely stock.

Does your cinnamon contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms)? No. We only buy from organically certified farms. They are not permitted to use genetically modified organisms. 

Is your cinnamon irradiated? It is non-irradiated, which maintains the nutritional integrity of the product.

What is coumarin? Coumarin is a compound within Cassia cinnamon. It is reported to not be good for the body in large quantities. 

Does cinnamon cure type 2 diabetes? We are not doctors so we do not give out medical advice. However, studies have been completed on cinnamon and it would appear that cinnamon can have a positive effect on the body. There's lots of research out there worth looking at, and here's a link to a study on type 2 diabetes.

Every year at about this time I start putting ginger powder into my breakfast smoothie as it's a good antihistamine amongst other health benefits.
I've tried many brands and now I have concluded that it's worth spending a little extra on this one to ensure getting the superior quality that stay fresh organics provide with this powder.

I have recently wanted to cut down on how much coffee I drink & have taken to green tea with half a teaspoon of ginger & a small squeeze of honey. I feel much better drinking this & the ginger from stayfreshorganics is really really good.
