Ceylon cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka (previously Ceylon) and Sri Lanka produces the largest quantity and best quality Ceylon cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon has a very delicate taste compared to cassia (AKA North American Cinnamon). Ceylon cinnamon uses only the inner bark from the Ceylon tree, has a fine texture and is considered to be milder than cassia. There are many grades of Ceylon cinnamon; Alba, Special, Continental (C00000, C0000, C000, C00 and C0), Mexican (M0000 special, M0000, and M000) and Hamburg (H1, H2 and H3).

Amazing cinamon. My daughter is allergic to the cinnamon in the grocery stores. I did some research and discovered that the stuff in the grocery store is Cassia and not real Ceylon cinamon. Bought this and my daughter had absolutely no reaction! It also tastes and smells really good. Different than the stuff you can get at a grocery store.
