Though often used interchangeably, cassia and cinnamon are not the same. Cinnamomum cassia (grown primarily in China and Indonesia) is reddish-brown and pungently sweet, while Cinnamomum zeylanicum (from Sri Lanka and India) is buff-colored and mild. Cassia is usually preferred for its more intense color and flavor.
Cinnamon is the world's most popular baking spice. You'll recognize its familiar taste and aroma in cakes, breads, cookies, breads and pies, dumplings, puddings, pastries and ice cream. It's common in savory dishes, too--soups, chutneys, catsup, pickles, squash, vinegars and meat glazes--and hot drinks like cider, coffee, tea and cocoa.
Cinnamon complements fruits like apricots, cherries, apples, blueberries and oranges. Vegetables, too especially carrots, spinach and onions are enhanced by cinnamon's pungent sweetness.
In combination with other spices (like cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, allspice, and black pepper), cinnamon shows up in a wide array of spice blends, including pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, cider blends, five spice powder, curries, pickling spice, even popcorn seasoning!
Cinnamon bark is widely used as a spice, but also has different medicinal properties. It is considered to be astringent, antiseptic, carminative and stimulant. It was traditionally used as a remedy against colds, diarrhea and various problems of the digestive system. Recent studies suggest that consumption of Cinnamon on a daily basis could significantly lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, making it extremely helpful for patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Due to its carminative effect, it can be used in cases of nausea and flatulence. Chewing on powdered Cinnamon is said to help people with cold feet and hands. In addition, it is also recommended in cases of appetite loss and indigestion. Cinnamon essential oil has significant antioxidant and antimicrobial properties as well.
