Ceylon Cinnamon Powder


What is Cinnamon Powder?

Cinnamon comes from the bark of a group of plants called Cinnamomum. Cinnamomum is a tree that is grown in many parts of Asia, but mostly in China, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Cinnamaldehyde is an essential oil that gives cinnamon its spicy, unique taste, sweet smell, and warm heat.

A tree needs to grow for about 2 years before it can make cinnamon. Then, it is cut down to a stump, from which a lot of small shoots will grow. The shoots are left to grow up and thicken until they are about two inches across. After the green bark on the outside is taken off, the inner bark is beaten and bruised until it comes away from the wood. The inner bark is then cut into strips, removed in large sheets, and dried in the air. Then, these strips are rolled into cinnamon quills, which are then dried in ovens or by baking outside in the sun. When the quills are tanned enough, they are sent out into the world.

The species Cinnamomum loureiroi is used to make Vietnamese cinnamon, which is also called Saigon cinnamon. Cinnamon from Vietnam is the strongest because it has a lot of essential oil, 25% of which is cinnamaldehyde.

Because of this, Vietnamese cinnamon is known as the most powerful cinnamon in the world of cooking. Take note, especially bakers: this is the cinnamon you want for spice cakes, cookies, and especially cinnamon rolls. We also like to add a pinch to a batch of already-ground coffee or espresso powder before pouring the water over it to give a regular cup a little more kick.

Cinnamon powder health benefits:

Some research suggests that people with diabetes might benefit from cinnamon. A look at 18 studies shows that cinnamon may be able to lower blood sugar.

May Reduce Cholesterol Levels:  Early research shows that cinnamon can help lower your cholesterol levels. "Bad" LDL cholesterol and high cholesterol levels in general are linked to problems like heart disease. Cinnamon seems to help lower LDL cholesterol and overall cholesterol levels without having a big effect on "good" HDL cholesterol.

Reduced Inflammation:  Cinnamaldehyde, which is the active ingredient in Ceylon cinnamon, may help reduce inflammation. Cinnamaldehyde has been shown to lower the body's inflammatory response, which makes bad symptoms go away. Heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis are all long-term conditions that are linked to inflammation. Ceylon cinnamon might help ease the symptoms of these health problems.

Improves Insulin Response:  People with insulin resistance or diabetes may also benefit from cinnamon. Studies have shown that eating cinnamon every day can help your body respond better to insulin. This can help your body better control how much sugar is in your blood and lower your risk of getting hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.
