Types of Cinnamon

December 1, 2017, 12:00 am

Cinnamon is a popular spice that flavors many holiday favorites such as gingerbread, pumpkin pie, and cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon comes from the bark of an evergreen tree and its spicy, warm fragrance and zesty flavor adds pungent depth to your favorite baked goods. You can also use it to add zing to savory dishes. Oryana sells several varieties of cinnamon as well as cinnamon sticks to suit your holiday baking and cooking needs.


Vietnamese cinnamon has a distinctly sweet flavor and an exceptionally high volatile oil content. Gourmet cooks rate it as the highest quality cinnamon in the world.


Ceylon cinnamon is subtle, has a delicate and nuanced flavor, smells very mild and is slightly sweet. This cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka.


Korintje is most commonly used in commercial bakeries and has an intense reddish-brown color and sharp cinnamon flavor; Korintje gels with water making it perfect for sticky buns.


Cassia, or Chinese cinnamon, is mostly grown in China and is very strong and spicy. It’s the most common cinnamon sold in grocery stores.
