Cinnamon is mostly used in cooking and baking. Cinnamon is a versatile spice which can be added to any food item such as salads, confectionaries, beverages, soups, stews and sauces. Cinnamon drink made by immersing pieces of bark in hot water is popular among Latin American countries. Cinnamon flavored tea is becoming popular. It is also used as a common ingredient in Chinese ad Aurvedic medicine. Cinnamon leaf and bark oils are used to flavor food products, in perfumery industry and in pharmaceutical industry.
Cinnamon bark is largely available in the forms of quills and making quills is unigue for Sri Lanka. Quills are made by rolling the pealed bark and join several of them together to get a pipe like structure in the required lenghts. The more thin is quill, the higher its quality. The top of the top of quills is type Alba which is permanently at Ceylonka offer.
