    Exclamation Can you overdose cinnamon?

    I happen to like cinnamon a lot so I always add some to coffee or shakes. I don't really know how much it is. Maybe a teaspoon. Can you overdose on cinnamon and then get side effects?

    You could i guess overdose on anything and get bad side effects, but i eat a ton a cinnamon to. Prob like 2-3 table spoons of it a day in oats, cottage cheese, protien pancakes, shakes ect.

    I think you would have to consume a ton to overdose and i know that drug stores sell cinnamon pills so it is healthy for u.

    But I heard that cinnamon contains coumarine (sp?) which can be harmful for the liver. This is why you should only by ceylon cinnamon and not cassia.
    I have ceylon but I'm scared that it could be cassia and they simply write ceylon on it.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    I don't know. I guess you could simply make sure you buy ceylon cinnamon and you could also get a bloodtest to just check the liver.

    There's very little chance you're taking enough to OD.

    Nutmeg is poisonous, but if you're eating nutmeg whole you've got other problems.

    I?m sorry for necroing this thread, but I just noticed that many people seem to worry for not being able to distinguish Cassia from true Cinnamon.

    If it?s in powder form, it is indeed impossible to distinguish. The only way to distinguish it is in when it?s sold as a stick.
    A true cinnamon stick is made up of many, very thin layers, one rolled over the other, perhaps up to 10 concentric circles.

    Cassia on the other hand , because of it?s much thicker bark, is a single layer rolled in a single circle, or perhaps rolled twice on itself.

    So in summary, Cinnamon is very thin, soft layers, while Cassia is a single, thick piece or bark.

    Unfortunately, according to a survey, most Americans have never tasted true cinnamon. Only Ceylon (Sri Lanka) labelled cinnamons are true cinnamons. Anything labelled as from China or some other place, is Cassia.

    If it?s in powder form, a pretty unreliable method is to test it?s tasta and aroma compared to a known Cassia cinnamon. Cassia has a stronger aroma.
