Wild Tusker's Organic Ceylon Cinnamon has a delicate multilayer texture, exquisite fragrance and a warm sweet taste. It is what we use in our cinnamon buns and other bakes goods.
Wild Tusker Organic Ceylon Cinnamon is different because Ceylon cinnamon is a different species from 99% of the cheap cinnamon on the market (Cassia)! Plus, a portion of each sale of "Wild Tusker" brand products goes towards the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage in order to lend a hand in helping to save this endangered species.Ceylon Cinnamon is also called true Cinnamon or sweet Cinnamon and especially suited for baking because of it's sweet taste.
By using our Ceylon Cinnamon powder you could reduce the use of sugar in all your recipes. Important Differences Ceylon cinnamon has a sweeter, more delicate flavor than cassia does, which may make it preferable for flavoring desserts and lighter dishes. But the more important distinction may be the presence of a chemical called coumarin, a natural plant chemical that acts as a blood thinner. This chemical is present in much higher concentrations in cassia than in Ceylon cinnamon. It is contraindicated for anyone taking prescription blood thinners. Coumarin has also been shown to be toxic to the liver and kidneys, and it may also be carcinogenic, which can negate any health benefits of cinnamon. Other Benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon In addition to its potential beneficial effect on glucose metabolism and body weight, Ceylon cinnamon also contains antioxidant compounds called proanthocyanadins. These are similar to the antioxidant compounds found in green tea and grapes. Coumarin-free Ceylon cinnamon may also be beneficial to the liver, according to studies reviewed by "BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine" in 2013, with no adverse effects to other organ systems. Other benefits may be antimicrobial and anti-parasitic activity, digestive health and blood pressure reduction. Opt for Ceylon over Cassia It is probably OK to use smalls amount of cassia occasionally. But if you are a daily user, it pays to seek out Ceylon, or думtrueдуќ cinnamon. Even if you do choose the Ceylon variety, more is not necessarily better. Use it in moderation for culinary and medicinal purposes, and monitor any health conditions with your physician. Some bottles of powdered cinnamon may not specify which type it is. Usually Ceylon will be labeled. If you have unlabeled, whole cinnamon sticks -- which are actually the plant bark -- the rolled bark of Ceylon cinnamon will be thinner and multilayered compared to the thicker bark of cassia
