Ceylon Cinnamon’s texture is important in many of the culinary arts as it is used in such a wide variety of dishes and beverages. These dishes range from savory dishes, sweet delicacies and baked foods such as Cinnamon pineapple pork, Cinnamon cookies, Cinnamon Pancakes and Cinnamon Rolls. Ceylon Cinnamon has a smooth texture and is filled with Cinnamon like a cigar whilst Cassia; the lesser substitute of cinnamon which is often mistaken for Ceylon Cinnamon, has a rough, grainy texture and is hollow.
The colour of the Cinnamon is a factor especially when used in gourmet dishes as visual presentation is very important. Ceylonl Cinnamon is a soft, light brown while cassia is a much darker brown and is unevenly coloured.
The flavour of Ceylon Cinnamon, which for obvious reasons is generally the most important factor when used in food and drink also vastly varies from that of Cassia. Ceylon Cinnamon has a sweet, spicy flavour which is one of the reasons it can be used in so many different dishes where as cassia tastes more harsh and strong.
As mentioned above, the differences between Ceylon Cinnamon and Cassia do not end there. Cassia contains 5% comarin which is a dangerous element that can cause liver damage. How ever, these negative effects only occur when relatively high levels of comarin are consumed. Cassia has high levels of comarin and has therefore been banned from certain countries including Germany. Cinnamon, however, contains only 0.004% of the element which is a safe quantity
Not only is Ceylon Cinnamon safe for consumption, but it has many health benefits such as LDL or “bad” cholesterol level reduction and insulin resistance which helps fight type 2 diabetes which is a growing international concern.
