Cinnamon stirs up homemade memories. Sprinkled on oatmeal or swirled into scratch-made cookies, the warmly-spiced aroma of cinnamon takes us back to our childhood. Today, this kitchen staple is finding its way into both sweet and savory dishes. Pure cinnamon has a rich, mahogany color and a deeply warm flavor. Capturing the pure taste of cinnamon is a long journey, but well worth the trip.
Our quest for the best cinnamon begins in the forests of Southeast Asia where cinnamon trees must mature up to 15 years to reach their peak flavor. The cinnamon bark is then harvested at the base of each tree, where it has a deeper color and more intense flavor. The bark is packaged and quickly shipped to our processing plant in Maryland. The cinnamon bark is then cleaned with natural steam to maintain its genuine flavor. The cinnamon is immediately bottled and sealed after grinding to lock in the absolute freshest taste and aroma.
Achieving pure cinnamon flavor begins at the source. Our relationships with growers from around the globe allow us to bring you the highest quality herbs and spices. We begin by collecting dozens of cinnamon bark samples from a variety of countries with different climates. Each sample is put through a series of rigorous tests to determine which has the purest aroma and flavor. We believe in going the extra mile so each bottle of cinnamon you open is bursting with the same purely authentic aroma that takes you home.
Our purity pledge also means the bottle of cinnamon you open today will have the same taste and aroma as the last one and the next one. Because our ground cinnamon is processed and bottled in our own facilities, it consistently maintains the same high-quality and product integrity. Other types of cinnamon can have inconsistent color, aroma and taste. Our stringent safety practices and natural cleaning process ensures our cinnamon is 100 percent pure flavor, with no added fillers. We know the best meals begin with the best ingredients, which is why we are committed to bringing you cinnamon that is consistently pure and flavorful.
What does pure flavor look like? Pure cinnamon has a soft powdery texture that's free of clumps. It should have a dark, mahogany tone and even coloring throughout. The aroma of pure cinnamon is intensely warm and woody. Tasting it delivers a punch of red-hot cinnamon heat. The flavor of 100 percent pure cinnamon brings warmth to sweet dishes, complexity to savory dishes and makes every dish a reason to celebrate.
