There is only one true cinnamon
 February 19, 2014
"If you are looking for the medicinal benefits of true cinnamon, be aware...
Scientifically speaking, there is only one true cinnamon, which is most commonly called "Ceylon cinnamon," and comes from the plant Cinnamomum zeylanicum. An alternative scientific name for Ceylon cinnamon is Cinnamomum verum, which simply translates as "true cinnamon."
The term "cassia" never refers to Ceylon cinnamon but rather to other species of cinnamon, including Cinnamomum cassia (alternatively called Cinnamomum aromaticaum) and Cinnamomum burmannii. While most simply referred to as "cassia," you'll often find Cinnamomum aromaticaum being referred to as "Chinese cinnamon" or "Saigon cinnamon," and you'll find Cinnamomum burmannii being called "Java cinnamon" or "Padang cassia.""

Great cinnamon
 October 11, 2013
"I waited until we had used it for a while before submitting the review. It is VERY inexpensive, oz for oz compared to the grocery store brands that come in the very small containers.
It is organic, which means a lot to me - no chemicals. It is stronger than the grocery store brands. You COULD use less, but I really like to rich flavor. It is the richest, most flavorful cinnamon I have ever used. We put in coffee, on sweet potatoes, and lots of dessert type foods.
