Chinese Cinnamon / Cassia Sticks (Cinnamomum Cassia)
Cassia has a stronger flavor than the more subtle true cinnamon, which can have floral notes, and also tends to be dark brown-red in color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture.
Cinnamon has shown potential in helping weight loss in addition to diabetes. Cinnamon has a lot of fiber. As a result, the spice can aid in the reduction of food cravings by producing a sense of satiety and fullness. Cinnamon can help you lose weight since the body expends more energy processing it than other meals.
It is commonly used to flavor foods and beverages. Although it is often used to flavor sweet foods, cassia can also lend warmth and flavor to savory meat and curry dishes.
◉ Sticks should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor and texture.
