    Which is it cinnamon or cassia? They come from different species of tree. Cinnamomum verum vs Cinnamomum cassia.

      I'll concede that most cinnamon sold in AU is cassia, but this is a beef for a botanist.

      There are actually many more varieties of cinammon…and regardless of whether you're referring to ceylon or cassia, people just call them all cinammon.

      • Well I just did my own research, and discovered the "Dutch ground" I've been buying from the cinnamon is also called "bastard cinnamon". What an outrage!

      • Conceeded… there are more varieties. But there is still a difference… Requiring labelling differences in many countries. Cassia came onto the market that was developed by cinnamon as a lesser, but cheaper, substitute.

        • +1

          Agreed. Everything is just marketed as cinammon, but there are real differences in flavour, and health benefits/detriments.

  • $9.55 shipping to Perth.

  • Hey, not a bad value, does this code work for anything else?
    I am in Brisbane and you only offer free delivery to Gold Coast. Any chance for a free delivery to Brisbane? (Or maybe, free pick up from Brisbane?)

  • Cassia is definitely inferior to Ceylon. I wouldn’t use this at home. Given how little of cinnamon you need in dishes, it is worth it to get Ceylon cinnamon.

    • What about Saigon cinnamon?

      • It’s too mild and more poisonous. Ceylon is the 🐐

          I prefer Rosemary on my 🐐

      Cassia Cinnamon

      Cassia cinnamon comes from the Cinnamomum cassia tree, also called Cinnamomum aromaticum.

      It originated in Southern China and is also known as Chinese cinnamon.

      However, there are several subspecies now widely grown across Eastern and Southern Asia (2).

      Cassia tends to be a dark brown-red color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture than Ceylon cinnamon.

      Cassia cinnamon is considered lower quality. It is very cheap and is the type most commonly consumed around the world. Almost all cinnamon found in supermarkets is the cassia variety.

      Cassia has long been used in cooking and in traditional Chinese medicine. Roughly 95% of its oil is cinnamaldehyde, which gives cassia a very strong, spicy flavor (3Trusted Source).

      Saigon Cinnamon

      Saigon cinnamon (Cinnamomum loureiroi, also known as Vietnamese cinnamon or Vietnamese cassia and quế trà my, quế thanh, or " quế trà bồng" in Vietnam) is an evergreen tree indigenous to mainland Southeast Asia. Saigon cinnamon is more closely related to cassia (C. cassia) than to Ceylon cinnamon (C. verum), though in the same genus as both. Saigon cinnamon has 1-5% essential oil content and 25% cinnamaldehyde in essential oil.

      Ceylon Cinnamon

      Ceylon, or “true cinnamon,” is native to Sri Lanka and southern parts of India.

      It’s made from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree.

      Ceylon is tan-brown in color and contains many tight sticks with soft layers. These features provide a highly desirable quality and texture.

      Ceylon cinnamon is less common and has long been prized as a cooking spice. It is quite expensive compared to the more common cassia variety.

      It’s described as having a delicate and mildly sweet flavor suitable for desserts.

      Approximately 50–63% of its essential oil is cinnamaldehyde, which is quite low compared to cassia. This explains its milder aroma and flavour (3Trusted Source).

      Cassia Contains Coumarin, Which Can Be Toxic When Consumed in large quantities.

      Coumarin is a compound found naturally in several plant species.

      It can be harmful in large doses.

      In rodents, coumarin is known to cause kidney, liver and lung damage. It may even cause cancer. In humans, there are isolated incidents of similar effects (11Trusted Source, 12Trusted Source).

      In fact, the Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) of coumarin used to be 0.2 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) of body weight. It has now been reduced to 0.05 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg) (11Trusted Source).

      Cassia cinnamon and Saigon cinnamon, but not Ceylon, are a very rich source of coumarin.

      Take Home Message

      All Ceylon, Saigon and Cassia are healthy and delicious.

      However, if you intend to consume large amounts of this spice or take a supplement, Saigon and Cassia can be harmful because of the coumarin content.

      At the end of the day, Ceylon cinnamon is better quality, strikes the right balance and much safer.
