Cinnamon powder is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon powder is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snack foods, tea and traditional foods. The aroma and flavour of cinnamon powder derive from its essential oil and principal component, cinnamaldehyde, as well as numerous other constituents.
