Formally known as Saigon cinnamon, this special variety (Cinnamomum loureirii) of high-oil cinnamon was absent from the international market for more than 20 years due to the Vietnam War. Compared to Indonesian varieties, Vietnamese cinnamon has a distinctly sweet flavor and an exceptionally high volatile oil content. Gourmet cooks rate it as the highest quality cinnamon in the world. Frontier® Organic Ground Vietnamese Cinnamon is a great choice for savory foods like curries, sauces and vegetable dishes as well as the traditional desserts and sweet treats. Our organic bulk Vietnamese cinnamon is kosher certified and non-irradiated.
