Ceylon cinnamon powder. With wonderful taste and aroma, it also has excellent health properties. It is used as an ingredient throughout history, dating back to ancient Egypt and was so rare that it was considered a gift from the gods. Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the inside of the cinnamon tree. It is created by cutting the stems of the cinnamon tree. Then we remove the inside and throw away the wooden casings. When dry, it forms cinnamon sticks which we can scrape and make cinnamon powder. Cinnamon fights the damage done to the body by free radicals, as it is full of antioxidants, such as polyphenols. In a search for antioxidant activity among 26 spices, cinnamon was crowned champion, winning a place in superfoods such as garlic and oregano. It is really so strong that it is also used as a natural “preservative”. We may have associated its use with the countless sweets we eat during the holidays, but if we look a little better, cinnamon is a spice that can offer a lot to our body! In fact, it is the second most popular spice, after black pepper, in Europe and America!
