Cinnamon is one of the most common spices in the world. But what we know less, the cinnamon that we find everywhere is cassia, not the "real" cinnamon that comes from Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan cinnamon or Ceylon cinnamon is much smoother and finer in taste. Cassia and cinnamon are also distinguished by their appearance: cassia is a roll of bark, while cinnamon is a hollow stick with small strips thinner and more fragile than cassia.
Among Ceylon cinnamon, there are different qualities regulated by ISO standards. Cinnamon from Sri Lanka is usually sold in C5 quality (large sticks). The most delicate quality is the one we sell at Muziris: Alba quality. It is the cinnamon dream for pastry chefs, although it is more expensive than its cousin Cassia.
