Cinnamon, also known as “Cinnamomum verum,” is a spice typically acquired from the inner bark of several tree species. “Cinnamomum verum” is often considered the ‘true cinnamon,’ however, the most commonly used species of cinnamon internationally is known as ‘Cassia’ cinnamon. Additionally, due to cinnamon being highly flammable, it’s cryogenically ground (with liquid nitrogen) in order to ensure safe processing and to preserve its volatile oils and moisture levels. Cinnamon can be used in sweet and savory dishes, breakfast cereals, snack foods, and traditional foods.
