Ceylon Cinnamon Ceylon cinnamon, grown in Sri Lanka, is also known as “true cinnamon.” This is NOT the predominant spice typically sold as cinnamon in the United States. What is commonly found at your grocer is a closely related and less expensive variety called Cassia cinnamon. While both Cassia and Ceylon are derived from the fragrant inner bark of Cinnamomum evergreen trees, Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) is preferable.
Cassia contains high levels of coumarin, a naturally occurring substance which has the potential to damage the liver in high doses, whereas Ceylon contains only traces of coumarin. Additionally, from a culinary perspective, Ceylon cinnamon is considered a finer quality spice than Cassia due to its sweeter, more delicate and complex flavor.
