Product description There are two main types of cinnamon traded in egypt: (1) Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) and (2) cassia (Cinnamomum cassia). The former comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree and is regarded to be of high quality. It is finer and has less coumarin than cassia. Cassia, the bark of the evergreen cassia tree, is a similar spice to cinnamon but the coarser and less fragrant and therefore considered to be of lower quality. In the following text, the word cinnamon is used as a general term for both species. When a specific species is meant, this is indicated specifically (as cassia or Ceylon cinnamon). The statistical data in this document are based on Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes. The CN uses Harmonised System (HS) codes to classify products. The codes used for this study are listed below. The second code includes cassia. The cinnamon-tree flowers mentioned there are covered in this study and their share in the trade is expected to be insignificant. The third code, for crushed and ground cinnamon, includes both cassia and Ceylon cinnamon. CN Code Description 09061100 Cinnamomum zeylanicum blume, neither crushed nor ground 09061900 Cinnamon and cinnamon-tree flowers (excluding Cinnamomum zeylanicum blume), neither crushed nor ground 09062000Cinnamon and cinnamon-tree flowers, crushed or ground 2 . Product specification Quality Product quality is a key issue for buyers in Europe and includes food safety as well as product quality. The European Spice Association (ESA) has published the Quality Minima Document, which is leading for the national spice associations affiliated with the ESA and therefore for most importers in Europe. It specifies the legal European requirements for unprocessed cinnamon (excluding crushed/ground cinnamon and cinnamon treated for microbial reduction) as well as additional buyer requirements not laid down in legislation. The document can be used to find out which chemical and physical parameters unprocessed cinnamon (both Ceylon cinnamon and cassia) needs to comply with when sold in Europe before crushing and grinding: • Ash: maximum 7% • Acid Insoluble Ash: maximum 2% • Moisture: maximum 14% • Volatile oil: minimum 0.7-0.1% (depending on botanical species) Cinnamon is graded in accordance with the relevant national standard of the country of production. In addition, ISO standard 6538-1997 (cassia) and 6539- 2014 (Ceylon cinnamon) provide some general guidelines on the grading, handling and packing of cinnamon. Quality is mainly determined by the volatile oil content. There are different quality grades depending on the type of product. For example, Indonesian cassia quills come in three main grades: • KA: 2.5% - 3.0% • KB: 2.0 – 2.5% • KC: below 2.0% Labelling Incorrect labelling is a major source of frustration for European buyers. Therefore, you must be sure to do this properly. See our study on European market for value-added spices and herbs for information on consumer packaging requirements. Bulk products have to include the following information: • the name of the product • details of the manufacturer (name and address) • batch number • date of manufacture • grade of the product • producing country • harvest date (month-year) • net weight • any information that exporting and importing countries may require: bar, producer and/or packer code, any extra information that can be used to trace the product back to its origin. Packaging Whole cinnamon must be packed in new, clean, sound and dry bags of jute, cloth laminated with polyethylene or polypropylene or high-density polyethylene bags/pouches. Cinnamon powder can be packed in new, clean, sound and dry containers made of glass, tin, or aluminium or in pouches made of laminated, metallised, multilayered food grade plastic material. The containers have to be free from insect infestation, fungus contamination, undesirable or bad smells and substances that may damage the contents. Strong smelling foods, detergents and paints have to be stored in the same room, as they will spoil the delicate aroma and flavour of the cinnamon.
Cinnamon is a plant quite familiar to life, can be used as both a spice and a medicine from time immemorial. Usually, people peel the bark (cinnamon) to use as medicine or spice. In life, cinnamon essential oil is also often used because of its many health benefits
