  • What is Cinnamon Cassia?

    Cinnamomum Cassia, better known as cinnamon cassia, is a spice that grows on the cinnamon tree, a tree that, as an adult, can reach 15m in height.

    The cassia cinnamon is in fact the inner layer of the bark of the cinnamon tree which, as it dries, rolls up on itself until it produces the cinnamon "sticks" as we know them.

    Broken cinnamon is a member of the Lauraceae family. It is found in the wild forests of South Asia: Indonesia, India... With its evergreen foliage, it is recognizable by its typical and powerful bark smell

    The harvest of Cassia cinnamon from Indonesia

    To harvest cassia cinnamon, it is important to wait until the stems of the cinnamon tree are full of sap. This is why cinnamon is harvested in the spring, during the period of heavy rains.

    The grower works the bark with an unsharpened blade. He makes circular gestures on the trunk to detach the bark from the tree.

    As it dries, the bark folds back on itself until it forms rolls. During this phase, the cinnamon develops its sweet aromas. To obtain powdered cinnamon, you have to wait until the rolls are dry before grinding them.

    David Vanilla's choice:

    I have chosen to offer powdered cinnamon for its simplicity of use in cooking and its strong aromas. Coming from the last harvests, it is of a rare quality.

    The different varieties of Cinnamon


    Cinnamon cassia comes from the cinnamon tree in China.

    There are 3 other varieties of cinnamon, also from Asian countries:

    • Vietnam: Cinnamon Loureiri
    • Sri Lanka: Ceylon Cinnamon
    • Malaysia: Padang cinnamon

    Did you know that? Cinnamon cassia is the most cultivated variety. 90% of the world's cinnamon production is cinnamon cassia. 50% of this production comes from Indonesia.

    Not to be confused with Ceylon cinnamon from China, cassia cinnamon is distinguished by :

    • Its powerful taste
    • Its sticks are thick and hard (if you squeeze the cinnamon sticks of Ceylon in your fingers, you will see that they are crumbly)
    • Its dark color
    • Its high coumarin content (this is one of the reasons why we advise not to exceed a daily consumption of 4 to 5 grams of cassia cinnamon per day)
    • Its price, more affordable

    The origins of Cinnamomum Cassia from Indonesia

    The origins of cinnamon cassia date back to antiquity. In China and in various Asian countries, it has been cultivated since 2500 BC. Moreover, there are stories in which cinnamon holds an important place.

    It is said that:

    • In Egypt, it was used to embalm the dead.
    • In Sri Lanka, it was a protected spice that could only be harvested by a single caste, at the risk of being condemned to death: the Salagamas.
    • In Rome, it was rare and highly prized. Nero used it in great quantities, hoping for forgiveness for the murder of Poppaea, his wife.
    • In France, it was used in medieval cooking and especially in the recipe of the hypocras.

    Did you know that? Cinnamon was imported from Asia to Europe in 1220.

    Dessert: Apple Cinnamon Pie

    This apple-based dessert owes its taste to the presence of cinnamon. Make a puff pastry or shortcrust pastry according to your taste. Peel and cut your apples to make a compote. Cook them in a little water, add sugar and let them stew. Add half a teaspoon of powdered cinnamon to your compote. Pre-bake your dough, then take it out of the oven. Spread a good layer of compote. Cut two apples into slices or small pieces. Cover the pie with it. Add a touch of cinnamon and put in the oven. Gourmets will appreciate it even more when eaten warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
