What’s the difference between CASSIS and VERUM?
There are two types of cinnamon: Cassia cinnamon and Ceylon cinnamon, also known as true cinnamon. The main difference between the two is their flavour profile and where they come from.
Cassia cinnamon is the more commonly used variety and is native to China, also grown in Vietnam. It has a stronger, sweeter flavour and the the colour may be slightly darker. It is also cheaper and more readily available than Ceylon cinnamon. However, it contains higher levels of coumarin, which can be toxic in large amounts. So, take it easy on the cinnamon donuts 🙂
Ceylon cinnamon, on the other hand, is native to Sri Lanka and has a more delicate and subtle flavour and a more complex aroma. It is also more expensive and harder to find than cassia cinnamon.
