The little story of Madagascar cinnamon
Cinnamon stick or powder comes from the cinnamon tree, an evergreen tree that can grow up to 15 meters in the wild. In cultivation the cinnamon tree measures a maximum of 3 meters.
You should know that cinnamon from Madagascar is true cinnamon. That is to say the original Ceylon cinnamon.
The first traces of cinnamon come from Sanskrit texts and in the Bible.
In the Middle Ages we find traces written in stew recipes, broths, creams.
Cinnamon was a rare and very precious spice.
During the discovery of the Indies by the Portuguese he had conflicts for this spice.
The conflict was between the Sri Lankans, Portuguese and Dutch in the 15th century then with the French and English in the 18th.
The Dutch settled on the Isle of Ceylon today Sri Lanka in 1656.
To have a monopoly on this spice, the Dutch destroyed all the plantations in India on the coast of Malabar to have a monopoly on the spice.
Following the conflicts, cinnamon was imported into other territories to avoid supply problems.
Today cinnamon is mainly consumed in North America USA in particular, Spain, Great Britain and Brazil.
