Experience the intense and sweet taste of Saigon cinnamon imported directly from Vietnam. One of our strongest cinnamons, Saigon Cinnamon 3% also features one of our highest oil contents. It is so flavorful and sweet, it is generally considered to be one of the best types of cinnamon in the world. Based on either its intense sweet taste or its aroma, Saigon cinnamon is frequently cited as a cinnamon lover's top choice.
Saigon Cinnamon, otherwise known as Vietnamese cinnamon, is actually a member of the Cassia family rather than Cinnamon family. It contains some of the highest concentration of essential oil in content of all forms of cinnamon or cassia. Due to the amounts of oils, Saigon Cinnamon produces a concentrated aroma, extreme flavor, and strong cinnamon flavor. Unlike other types of cinnamon that are only subtly sweet, Saigon Cinnamon is described as fragrant with an unmistakable cinnamon sweetness.
While there are many imitators on the market, our supplier maintains the only U.S. processing plant in Vietnam. Raw cinnamon is harvested, hand selected, sorted and cleaned prior to shipping whole to our facilities in the United States. We in turn grind the bark at our Fort Wayne, Indiana location and ship directly to you for the freshest possible ground Saigon Cinnamon.
High levels of flavor, oil, and fragrance make Saigon Cinnamon sought after by chefs, cooks, and connoisseurs around the world and perfect for all you're baking, stews, teas, soups, and holiday dishes.

My baked goods tase 1,000 % better using this cinnamon than they ever tasted before. Also great for using in north African spice blends giving savory food a special kick. Once you smell it, you'll be a believer! Worth the price.

I was so surprised first when I smelt the 3% cinnamon and then when I tasted it. There is no bitterness and It is almost sweet without adding sugar. I make the best snicker-doodle cookies with this cinnamon.
