250ml Cassia Oil High Quality Flavouring
Our food-grade Cassia oil has been filtered to remove its bitter taste and leave only the delightful cinnamon flavour. Cassia oil is an essential ingredient for traditional Easter biscuits.
No Easter celebration is complete without the scent and flavour of Easter biscuits infused with the secret ingredient of Cassia oil.
Cinnamomum cassia, called Chinese cinnamon, is an evergreen tree originating in southern China. It’s widely cultivated in China and elsewhere in southern and eastern Asia. It’s one of several species of Cinnamomum from which their aromatic bark is used as a spice.
Traditional Somerset Easter biscuit recipes contain Cassia Oil – it was believed that oil of Cassia had been used in embalming Christ’s body.
Differing from normal essential oils, our Cassia oil is food grade quality having been filtered to remove its bitterness. Cassia oil is stronger in aroma and taste than regular cinnamon so it’s important to be sparing with it.
