Cinnamon Leaf - Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Lauraceae)

 

Country of origin: 

Extraction method: steam distillation

Around 200 species of cinnamon are found in the area covered by Southeast Asia, East Asia and the Pacific Islands. In the tertiary period their distribution was much larger.

Cinnamons are fragrant. Leaves, bark, flowers, fruits, wood and root always contain essential oil of various composition.

Cinnamon as we know it is the dried bark from the Sri Lanka cinnamon bush, C. zeylanicum. The main component of cinnamon bark oil is the aromatic aldehyde 3-phenyl-2(E)-propenal, also called cinnamaldehyde (about 60 % of the essential oil). However, the oil from the leaves of the cinnamon bush has eugenol as the main component, the oil from the root has camphor as the main component, whereas the oil from the flowers has cinnamyl acetate as its main component.

Coca-Cola's original flavour came from cinnamon, lime oil, cola nuts, etc.
