  • What is Cassia Cinnamon?

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

    Cassia cinnamon is actually the inner layer of the bark of the cinnamon tree that, as it dries, curls up on itself until it gives the cinnamon "sticks" as we know them.

    The cinnamon tree is part of the Lauraceae family. It is found in the wild forests of South Asia: Indonesia, India... Endowed with evergreen foliage, it is recognizable by its typical and powerful smell of bark

    Harvesting 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 the cinnamon harvest is carried out in spring, during the period of heavy rains.

    The grower works the bark with a non-edged 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, cinnamon develops its sweet aromas. To obtain powdered cinnamon, it is necessary to wait until the rolls are well dry before grinding them.

    David Vanille's choice:

    I have chosen to offer you cinnamon powder for its ease of use in cooking and its strong aromas. From the last harvests, it is of a rare quality.

    The different varieties of Cinnamon

    poudre-de-cannelle-cassia-indonesie

    Cassia cinnamon comes from the Chinese cinnamon tree.

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

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

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

    To avoid confusing it with Ceylon cinnamon from China, please note that cassia cinnamon is distinguished by:

    • Its powerful taste
    • Its thick, hard sticks (if you squeeze the Ceylon cinnamon sticks into your fingers, you'll see they're brittle)
    • Its dark colour
    • Its high coumarin content (it is for this reason that 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 cassia cinnamon go back to Antiquity. In China and various Asian countries, it has been cultivated since 2500 BC. Moreover, there are stories in which cinnamon plays an important role.

    He thought 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 large quantities of it in the hope of forgiveness for the murder of his wife Poppaea.
    • In France, it was used in medieval cuisine and particularly in the recipe of the hypocras.

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

    Pas encore testé, mais l'odeur de cette cannelle ne ressemble en rien à celle qu'on trouve en supermarchés. Elle sent délicieusement bon, hâte de l'essayer ! Je recommande.
