Production & Sourcing
Harvesting: Cinnamon sticks are made from the inner bark of cinnamon trees, primarily from species like Cinnamomum verum (Ceylon cinnamon) or Cinnamomum cassia (Cassia cinnamon). The bark is carefully harvested in thin strips.
Drying: The harvested strips of cinnamon bark are laid out to dry in the sun or through controlled drying methods. Drying reduces the moisture content and prepares the bark for further processing.
Curling or Rolling: Once the bark is sufficiently dried, it becomes more flexible. The strips are then curled or rolled tightly, creating the characteristic cylindrical shape of cinnamon sticks. This rolling process helps seal the aromatic oils within the bark, preserving the flavor and aroma.
Cutting and Sizing: After the bark is curled or rolled, it is often cut into smaller sections of varying lengths, depending on the intended use of the cinnamon sticks.
