Our Organic Cinnamon Powder is the botanical variety Cinnamomum zeylanicum and comes from the bark of the laurel tree. This variety of cinnamon is commonly known as "Ceylon" or "True" cinnamon due to its superior quality. It is native to Sri Lanka and the south-eastern coast of India, which is where ours grows. If you carry out some research online, you will find that this variety of cinnamon can also be grown commercially in areas like Brazil, Java, Madagascar, Vietnam, West Indies, or Zanzibar.
