Cinnamon is the most important and valuable spice produced in Sri Lanka.
Before the advent of modern food preservation technology Europeans have
used Cinnamon with Pepper to preserve meat products. Cinnamon is used in
bakery products, Asian foods and flavored tea for its distinctive aroma &
flavor. With growing concern on health hazards associated with synthetic
flavoring agents used in the food industry there is an increasing preference
for natural flavors worldwide.
