So, what is cinnamon?

Cinnamon is a fragrant spice derived from the bark of several tree species belonging to the genus Cinnamomum. With its warm, sweet and slightly woody aroma, cinnamon is widely used in both sweet and savory dishes, as well as in beverages and aromatherapy. Its distinct flavor comes from the presence of cinnamaldehyde, a compound that also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon is a good source of manganese, fiber, and calcium, and has been shown to have potential health benefits such as lowering blood sugar levels and reducing the risk of heart disease. This versatile spice is available in various forms, including ground cinnamon, cinnamon sticks, and cinnamon oil.
