McCormick Spice Ground Korintji 1 Pound Cinnamon
Cinnamon is the dried, inner bark of various evergreen trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum.
The Cinnamon sold in the United States is Cinnamomum burmannii.
It is precious not only as a flavoring for food but is esteemed as a medicine, a perfume, or one of the aromatics burned as incense.
Korinji Cinnamon has a slightly more intensive color and flavor than the Vera and is thus rated the better type.
Korinji is deep reddish brown and has a sharp Cinnamon flavor.
The volatile oil content, which is the principal quality factor, is determined through steam distillation methodology; cinnamic aldehyde is the principal contributor to the spice's flavor and aroma.
The benefit of spices, herbs, and blended seasonings is in their contribution to the flavor and appeal of foods and not in their nutritional content.
Though all spices and herbs contain some nutrients, the per-serving contribution of these nutrients in most cases is insignificant.
Under ideal storage conditions, Ground Cinnamon may retain its flavor qualities and strength for up to three years.
