    Another great quality product

    We're so glad to hear that you're enjoying your Cinnamon Powder. Our Cinnamon is Ceylon (true cinnamon) rather than Cassia so it has a wonderfully subtle, sweet taste and is a lighter brown colour. Ceylon also has lower levels of coumarin, making it kinder to health.

    Great value ‘true’ cinnamon. I use this as a natural sweetener with great added nutritional benefit

    Its delicate flavour is delicious and it tastes great added in my porridge, clean cakes & shakes. A great product & I now prefer the taste of this cinnamon rather than non-organic lower grade cinnamon. :-)

    Very good. The flavour is not too strong. It mixes well with my muesli, flax seed and Baobab powder breakfast. I bought it to help lower blood glucose. Will buy again.

    "Cazza"

    Add to my daily porridge and cooking, love the consistency!

    "David T

    "Mishy M

    Good product

    Good stuff better than store bought

    Having found out about the coumarin toxicity risk in supermarket cassia cinnamon, I decided to give Ceylon (Cinnamon Zeylanicum)(True Cinnamon) a go. At 猷0.30 per 10g this is actually cheaper then schwartz inferior potentially toxic (see below) cassia cinnamon at 猷0.46 per 10g (tesco). For this you get organic fair trade high quality product thats safe to consume even in large quantities, which is especially helpful if you make cinnamon rolls. Having done a taste test I would say cassia does have a slightly stronger more robust flavour with a touch more sweetness, whereas this ceylon is slightly lighter and more aromatic. However this ceylon still clearly tastes of cinnamon and I wouldn't be surprised if some people couldn't tell which is which. Needless to say I am very happy with my purchase of this quality product at good value. A 1tsp a day of supermarket cassia cinnamon can provide a toxic level of coumarin, causing damage to your health liver and kidneys. This is unlike this true/ceylon/Cinnamon Zeylanicum, which contains 1200X less coumarin providing a negligible amount, meaning you can safely consume much larger quantities.

    "MARLEN"

    Excellent Product !!!!!

    "Evangelos S

    Yeah, that tastes awesome! I use it daily and it's awesome

    "Explorassimo"

    I would agree with one of previous review, stating that this cinnamon does not smell / taste like cinnamon. It does not matter how much you put it into the meal, it is still does not smell / taste good enough I was expecting. So will not be buying again because of this. Great thing about this product is that it is Organic and fair trade, and that was the reason I bought it for the first place.

    "Violeta M

    Good quality!

    "cati"

    Well, after using it for a long time I realised that it has no flavour and unfortunately this is not as fine as I thought will be, you will still have to grounded a little if you really want a fine powder. I am going to buy today from my supermarket something with flavour even if it's not organic Another thing is that, what's the point of being organic if it comes in a metal tin. which definitely has been treated with chemicals. From now on I will go for jars(glass).

    "Customer"

    Superb

    "margaretcrossley"

    Amazing product. Nice to finally know what "real" cinnamon should look, smell and taste like. Use it daily now.
