Cinnamon is known to be an antioxidant and to stabilise blood sugar levels The 25 g Organic Ground Cinnamon by La Caravane des Épices is organically grown and certified under IFS and Ecocert standards. Packaged in France, this product is made entirely from natural ingredients. From the Mediterranean to China, all the ancient civilisations knew and adopted this mysterious spice, derived from the bark of the cinnamon tree. Much appreciated in France in the Middle Ages, it later disappeared from culinary habits for several centuries. This Organic Ground Cinnamon by La Caravane des Épices is of guaranteed Indonesian origin. Its superior quality lies in the perfect level of coumarin, which gives it a sweet, fragrant taste, and its beautiful light brown colour. The paler the colour of this spice, the better its quality; the cinnamon trees are regularly pruned to create regrowth, from which lighter, more fragrant sticks are harvested. La Caravane des Épices places great importance on selecting the best quality, certified organic ingredients, as well as the aesthetics of its products.
Cinnamon is used to flavour gingerbread, apple or damson tarts, Moroccan tagines and Indian curries. Sprinkled over a cup of coffee, it will reveal the aromatic Arabica notes and give them a sweet, peppery flavour.
