Also, pregnant women should consume less cinnamon because it causes uterine contractions and preterm labor. People with allergies to cinnamon should avoid consuming it and replace it with other spices. Finally, excessive cinnamon consumption is dangerous for heart patients because it increases the heart rate.

Storage

As with other spices, it is recommended to store cinnamon in containers that can be tightly sealed and in a dry place away from humidity and away from sunlight. This way the aroma and taste of cinnamon will be preserved for a longer time. It should be noted that Ground Cassia Cinnamon tends to lose some of its flavour over time. Meanwhile, Cassia Cinnamon Sticks retains its flavour for almost a year.
