Ceylon Cinnamon is more expensive than Cassia versions, and it is also the Cinnamon more closely associated with potential health benefits involving blood sugar regulation. However, since both forms belong not only to the same family of plants (Lauraceae, the laurel family) but also to the same genus (Cinnamomum) they share many characteristics.
What Ceylon Cinnamon and Cassia do not have in common is their coumarin content. Coumarin is a naturally occurring plant components that can have strong anticoagulant properties. Because our blood needs to maintain its ability to coagulate in times of injury, excessive intake of coumarin over a prolonged period of time can pose health risks. While the level of naturally occurring coumarin in Ceylon Cinnamon is very small and lower than the amount that could cause health risks, the level of naturally occurring coumarin in the Cassia is high and may pose a risk to sensitive individuals. For this reason, organizations like the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment in Berlin, Germany have recommended that large amounts of the Cassia be avoided.
