This is TRUE CINNAMON (Cinnamomum verum), not cassia. True cinnamon is found mainly in Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Brazil and the Caribbean. Cassia is a more common spice of the cinnamon family, found in China, Indonesia and Viet Nam. It is believed most of the cinnamon consumed in the USA is cassia, which contains much higher levels of Coumarin than True Cinnamon.
