Stick With Spice Islands Cinnamon

Thousands of years ago, cinnamon was so highly prized that it was regarded a precious rarity, gifted only to monarchs and gods. That’s the feeling we get while using Spice Island cinnamon.

There are two main varieties of cinnamon: Ceylon and cassia. While Ceylon has a milder taste, cassia cinnamon has a rich, sweeter palette, inducing a mouthwatering hint of sultry spice. That’s why our cinnamon is only derived from the deep forests of Vietnam, known for its premium cassia. Ours is specially milled to retain more volatile oils—making Spice Island® cinnamon more colorful, fragrant and delicious. It produces a sweet-yet-spicy flavor that enhances all baked goods and exotic dishes.

Cinnamon has been used for over 4,000 years, and has seen its fair share of alterations. Spice Islands® cinnamon sticks to the basics. We give you every variety needed to bring perfection to the table: traditional cinnamon, organic cinnamon, the cinnamon grinder, the cinnamon sugar grinder and cinnamon sticks. Always packaged in our signature, tight-sealing, BPA-free glass screw-top bottle, we deliver nothing but pure, wholehearted cinnamon, ready to spice (or sweeten) your meal. 

As one of the most basic pantry staples, cinnamon should be anything but.

Our Cassia cinnamon has a rich, sweeter palette, inducing a mouthwatering hint of sultry spice.

Cinnamon brings a hint of sweet and spicy to a number of dishes found on SpiceIslands.com like Cranberry Apple Chutney, Cinnamon Apple Wontons, and Cinnamon Pork Rub.
