The two varieties, cassia and Ceylon, have somewhat comparable flavors. Cassia cinnamon isn’t quite as sweet as Ceylon cinnamon. Interestingly, the Ceylon (remember, that is the “real” cinnamon) is also harder to find in most supermarkets. Typically, you have to head to a specialty store to find the “true” cinnamon.
Now this is where things get interesting. The cassia (aka “fake”) cinnamon contains a very high amount of coumarin. Coumarin is a flavoring substance, and it can be toxic. The fake cinnamon typically contains over 1,000 times more coumarin compared with the real cinnamon.
But the differences don’t end there. Real cinnamon is more expensive, harder to find, and comes from a plant named cinnamomum zeylanicum. Real cinnamon is also light brown in color, and a little thinner and softer in appearance. Sticks of real cinnamon will have multiple layers. As mentioned, there will also be substantially less coumarin found in real cinnamon.
