Different types of cinnamon: (ceylon) is the “true” cinnamon that contains all the health benefits and the other (cassia) is the “fake” cinnamon with less benefits and also potentially harmful side effects. It has to do with something called coumarin. Cassia cinnamon has much higher amounts of coumarin than ceylon cinnamon. When taken in large amounts, coumarin can be harmful to the liver. So if you are heavy handed with cinnamon, your best bet is to stick with ceylon cinnamon.

One very common question these days we receive over email and comments is whether we can use cinnamon along with turmeric in paste or other recipes.  If yes, then how much.  This is a good question indeed because cinnamon like turmeric is an awesome spice and integral part of Indian kitchen.
