One of the favourite winter spices, today cinnamon is highly ranked in cooking, due to its aroma and exotic taste. The Bible mentions the use of cinnamon by Egyptian, Greek and Roman people, whereas the Asian cultures have used it for centuries in medical purposes.
So far, the information of effects of cinnamon are based on the results in vitro and in vivo studies and experience of traditional application. Previous analysis have shown a probable efficiency in decreasing the postprandial absorption of glucose, stimulation of taking over the glucose by cells, stimulation of glucose metabolism, glycogen synthesis, inhibition of gluconeogenesis, stimulation of insulin release and increased activity of insulin receptors.
Today, cinnamon is mostly produced in its native countries : Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Vietnam, India and China. Na There are between 50 and 250 types of cinnamon, however, there are two types of cinnamon mostly present at the market:
1. true or Ceylon cinnamon (lat. Cinnamomum verum or Cinnamomum zeylanicum)
2. cassia, so called Chinese cinnamon (lat. Cinnamomum cassia)
The true cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and it has yellow-brown colour. This type of cinnamon has got more gentle and sweet aroma. Ceylon cinnamon barks have multiple thin layers of crust and they are easy to ground due to which it differs from cassia.
Cassia, also known as Chinese cinnamon is type of cinnamon often found in shops, it has sharper aroma, stronger taste and lower price. It is mostly used in the food industry because it is more resistant and easier to grow. Cassia barks are hard and have one thicker layer of crust and cannot be ground easily unless previously cut into smaller pieces.
Active component of essential oil of both types of cinnamon is cinnamaldehyde, which is responsible for lowering the lever of sugar and lipids in the blood
Why is Ceylon cinnamon safer and has better quality?
Coumarin is chemical compound which gives fragrance to plants and it is a natural ingredient of many plants. It has a sweet fragrance, which can be easily recognized as the fragrance of freshly cut hay. More coumarin means stronger aroma and hot taste due to which it was used as aroma enhancer in tobacco and some alcoholic drinks until it was prohibited to use it for the said purposes.
Coumarin has a strong anticoagulant, cancerogenic and hepatotoxic effect. Cassia contains coumarin, which was not found in Ceylon cinnamon in significant quantities. This is why Ceylon cinnamon is more suitable and safer for human nutrition, whereas cassia is more suitable as raw material in manufacturing scented candles, massage oils and similar products.
