Just use a brand you trust, read your lable, dates, and dont buy bulk if you endup throwing half of it away. I hardly keep anything longer than a month, just buy what I need for that month. And grow what you can.

I use a lot of cinnamon in my baking -- I have always used Trader Joe's cinnamon. Not any more -- I will start using the Ceylon cinnamon. Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, I was glad to read about this too.

We like to put cinnamon in our coffee and depending on how much coffee we drink in a day, we can go through a lot of it. I normally buy the big jars of Saigon cinnamon from Costco; the one that I have now is almost empty so I pitched the rest and ordered a 1 pound bag of Ceylon cinnamon from Amazon.

I sprinkle cinnamon when I see ants in the house - they hate it, and I don't care if it damages their livers!

I buy the Ceylon cinnamon, too. Supposedly, it's the "real" cinnamon. The grocery store cinnamon tastes okay but doesn't have the health benefits for weight loss, cholesterol lowering and diabetes that Ceylon cinnamon is purported to have.

I am not going to ask for a pedigree for the cinnamon sticks I use and reuse to flavour my tea.
Cinnamon from the store is really just sawdust really fine and flavored, and when I found this out, I buy only pure cinnamon. You can get it on Amazon, and it is 100% amazing. I had no idea the difference and would never go back. I really can't believe that they can sell the "fake" unhealthy stuff.
