Antioxidant, blood sugar stabiliser. 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. Albert Ménès cinnamon 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. Albert Ménès places great importance on selecting the best quality, as well as the aesthetics of our products.
Cinnamon perfumes pain d’épices, 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.
