Saigon cinnamon has 1-5% essential oil in content and 25% cinnamaldehyde in essential oil, which is the highest of any cinnamon all over the world. Consequently, out of the three forms of Cassia, it commands the highest price. Saigon cinnamon is considered to be the fame of Cao Sơn Ngọc Quế (“gem cinnamon on high mountain”). Its flavor is similar to “regular” cinnamon but much stronger and smoother. The powder is much less “grainy” in consistency when applied and mixed with other ingredients. Once you try this cinnamon, you won’t go back to the others!
