Cinnamon Powder 

The process of cinnamon creation is a pretty straightforward one. First, the stems of cinnamon trees are cut off and the inner barks are extracted. Then, the woody parts of the plant would be removed, dried and ground into cinnamon powder, which is great for various reasons no matter where you buy cinnamon powder. 

What is the difference between ground cinnamon and cinnamon powder? 

While you might be tempted to think otherwise, the truth is that these two types of cinnamon are pretty much the same. Ground cinnamon is cinnamon that has been broken down into very small grains/bits/particles for cooking. Cinnamon powder is cinnamon that's been broken into the finest possible particles that could exist. 

However, they’re essentially made from the same cinnamon tree. Additionally, they wouldn’t taste much different when you add them to your meals. The only way you might sense a major difference between the two is if you use different variations of cinnamon to create your powder and ground cinnamon. 

What are the health benefits of cinnamon? 

Cinnamon is one of the many spices that go beyond giving just good taste. This spice is loaded with antioxidants. These serve as your body's line of defence against free radicals.

Additionally, cinnamon possesses useful anti-inflammatory qualities. This means that in its own way, it assists your body in the fight against tissue damage and dangerous infections.

Cinnamon may also contribute to the prevention of heart disease. It does so by helping to reduce the negative cholesterol levels in your body. The spice would also help make your body more sensitive to insulin, making you less susceptible to diabetes. 

Can cinnamon kill viruses and bacteria? 

Technically speaking, cinnamon is capable of killing certain bacteria and/or viruses. For example, cinnamon can help with the disruption of an unpleasant bacterial colony known as a biofilm. This colony often covers the topmost surfaces of medical gear and can be incredibly awful due to the infections that they cause. 

Also, cinnamon may be used to remove bad odours which are essentially caused by a buildup of bacteria in an area. Cinnamon’s ability to fight bacteria can be linked to its effectiveness as an antimicrobial agent. However, it is worthy of note that cinnamon shouldn’t be a replacement for proper hygiene and health practices.

What are the most popular uses of cinnamon? 

Cinnamon is used for several different things across the world. In the fight against nasty smells and odours, many people often turn to cinnamon for help by adding it to the source of olfactory discomfort. 

In the culinary world, cinnamon has even more uses. Many people make it a primary ingredient in their cookies, cakes, and desserts. Others, especially in the middle-east tend to use cinnamon for their excellent lamb and chicken dishes. 

Ultimately, what you can do with cinnamon is entirely dependent on you. The spice is incredibly versatile and allows for a lot of creativity in the kitchen. 

Is cinnamon popular in Australia? 

Yes, cinnamon is quite popular in different parts of Australia. Many people across the country purchase this spice to use in their meals. Another fun thing to know is that cinnamon can be grown in Australia. It might require a pot or a tropical/subtropical part of Australia. 

However, cinnamon can be made in Australia to meet the demand for it within the country. The specific type of cinnamon that's well-known and most commonly used among the Australian people is Ceylon cinnamon. It is also referred to as the "true" cinnamon. Its flavour is sweet and unique.
