Ceylon True Cinnamon (Organically Sourced)
Native to Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and still grown there today, this is the preferred cinnamon in England and Mexico. We refer to this as “true” cinnamon because that is exactly what it is, the bark of a cinnamon tree. In the States, what we know as cinnamon is really the bark of a cassia tree.
This cinnamon comes from the more mature trunk of the tree while the non-organic Ceylon cinnamon comes from the quills. The higher oil content from the trunk bark leads to a more potent, spicier, longer lasting flavor than the non-organic Ceylon, although it still has that wonderful hint of citrus.
What is Organically Sourced?
Products with the "Organically Sourced" designation have been grown and cleaned organically. Once these products are received by our warehouse in Denver and opened to be repackaged into Savory Spice jars, they no longer qualify as organically certified, but the methods for producing them are in line with organic standards. Products that are Organically Sourced will include "ORG-S" on the front of the label.
