    Default Cinnamon use and liver and kidney damage

    "European health agencies have recently warned against consuming high amounts of cassia, due to a toxic component called coumarin.[1] Coumarin is known to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentrations." " Ceylon cinnamon, using only the thin inner bark, has a finer, less dense, and more crumbly texture, and is considered to be less strong than cassia. Cassia is generally a medium to light reddish brown, is hard and woody in texture, and is thicker (2Ė3 mm thick), as all of the layers of bark are used. All of the powdered cinnamon sold in supermarkets in the United States is actually Cassia." Wikipedia cinnamon

    This can be good to know if you are taking cinnamon in high dosage The Swedish food and health government agency says that normal non-therapeutics use has no risks. Still small children are advised not to eat more that 3 gingerbreads a day. They say a toxic dose of ginger gread would be 2 hg gingerbread. The EEC is actually allowing a higher content of cumarin in food from today than before.

    According to the Swedish National Food administration the allowed amount kumarin in food or drinks is 2 mg kumarin per kg . According too EEC:s directive 88/388, Annex II.
    They strongly advice against taking large doses of cinnamon.
