What is the difference between cinnamon and real cinnamon?

What some of us don’t know is that cinnamon is most commonly found in two forms – Ceylon cinnamon and Cassia cinnamon. And to be exact, most of the times you’ll find the Cassia version in the market, and cassia cinnamon is commonly known as cinnamon.

Ceylon cinnamon has a lighter color and smoother texture. Its taste is more delicate and slightly sweeter than Cassia cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon sticks tend to be softer and crumblier than their Cassia counterparts. Did you know that Ceylon cinnamon is often referred to as the “true cinnamon” or “real cinnamon”? Ceylon cinnamon is primarily produced in Sri Lanka. Whereas Cassia cinnamon is usually a mixture of many different types of cinnamon.

One of the biggest differences that Cassia and Ceylon cinnamons have, is that Ceylon cinnamon contains a lot less coumarin (less than 0.004%) compare to cassia. And this is a good thing! Coumarin is a natural compound found in cinnamon. BUT! health specialists believe, Consuming coumarin in large quantities is toxic to your liver and kidneys. It may even lead to liver damage or failure. So if you’re trying to get healthier while consuming cinnamon, make sure it is safe and doesn’t have the opposite effect on your health!
