Ceylon cinnamon is known as ‘true cinnamon’ and ‘pure cinnamon’. It is obtained from the bark of Cinnamonum zealanicum, which is an evergreen plant native to Sri Lanka (Ceylon). The 90% of world production of true cinnamon originates from Sri Lanka. The unique method of processing and curing of cinnamon entices the characteristic flavor of cinnamon production of other countries, such as Cassia cinnamon.
Countries in North and South America, together with other European countries, are the major importers of Ceylon cinnamon because of its aromatic nature.
