Cinnamon, Cassia or Ceylon, is highly appreciated for its perfumed taste, also for its antimicrobial properties and richness in potentially health beneficial antioxidants (their concentration is such that even a small portion of cinnamon can make a significant contribution to the total daily intake).
Since centuries Cinnamon is a spice used to prolong food preservation. A property consolidated by recent studies that have shown that cinnamon can hinder the multiplication of several microorganisms thanks under others to-its richness in cinnamaldehyde, a volatile phenolic compound with antioxidant power. Moreover an in vitro study has shown that cinnamaldehyde has the ability to decrease the activity of an enzyme (5-lipoxygenase) associated with the occurrence of inflammatory or allergic reactions (asthma, allergic rhinitis, psoriasis ...). On the other hand several studies indicate that cinnamon can decrease, even regulate (the lipid combustion is activated), blood glucose and certain blood lipids (triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol) in a few months. 1g to 3g daily are sufficient (1g corresponds to approximately one half to one teaspoon cinnamon ). Cinnamon could thus be a spice with promising effects in type 2 diabetes, allergies, bloodfat problems.
Cinnamon is much used in the kitchen for both raw and cooked, sweet and salty dishes. Note that it is better not to add the cinnamon powder before the end of cooking, because it becomes bitter when too long cooked.
