Cinnamon Sticks 75g
Cinnamon sticks are often used in Indian and Mexican cooking to give a sweet, mildly spicy warmth. Infuse a whole stick in sauces and stews, or even use to make Mexican-style hot chocolate or mulled wine.
Cinnamon does have trace amounts of calcium, manganese, iron, and potassium. Cinnamon's distinct scent and flavor comes from a volatile oil, cinnamaldehyde, which makes up about 95% of the oil in Cassia Cinnamon. This oil has antimicrobial properties, and Cassia Cinnamon has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat kidney and gastrointestinal ailments. Cassia Cinnamon sticks also contain a high level of coumarin, a toxin that thins the blood and can damage the liver and kidneys if too much is consumed.
