Did you know that U.S. food regulations allow ground nut husk to be scented with cinnamon bark oil and sold as ground cinnamon? It also allows the addition of flour to prevent this “cinnamon” from caking!
Don’t you wonder if those who are sensitive to grains are aware of this?!
I’ve been learning a lot about cinnamon since getting to know Rupert, who owns Cinnamon Hill, a company selling fresh REAL cinnamon sticks from Sri Lanka and Vietnam, along with a cool looking, specially designed cinnamon grater.
I asked Rupert to explain why else fresh is better, besides that it’s not FAKE and it doesn’t have flour added, as if that’s not enough…
