A rising number of customers and sellers are now interested in split cinnamon. This trend is explained by its health benefits and low price.
Introducing stick cinnamon
Split cinnamon is a product made from the inner bark of cinnamon trees. Workers will wash and dry the barks before cutting them into smaller parts. Split cinnamon is usually packed in carton boxes.
Product standards of split cinnamon
Below are the standard quality indicators of split cinnamon:
- Moisture: the standard moisture is 12%, but in reality, it is usually from 13 to 13,5%
- Length: from 20 centimeters to 45 centimeters
- Essential oil content: from 0.5% to roughly 4%
- Skin: not scraped off
- Packaging: in carton boxes to avoid breaking
As it has a much lower essential oil percentage, split cinnamon is sold at a cheaper price than tube, stick, or cigarette cinnamon – each ton is from $2,800 to $3,500
