Cassia, also known as Chinese cinnamon, is somewhat similar to cinnamon in both taste and therapeutic properties. Although the United States Pharmacopoeia recognizes it as cinnamon, it should not be confused as such, for it has its own unique benefits and history. It has been used for centuries both medicinally and for culinary purposes.
Germans and Romans preferred to use cassia instead of cinnamon in chocolate, as it has a stronger flavor. Both Europeans and Chinese used cassia in a variety of ways to spice up foods. The Chinese also use cassia frequently for digestive complaints like diarrhea and nausea.
It is also used to fight colds, rheumatism, kidney and reproductive complaints, and most particularly vascular disorders. Cassia is also a known skin irritant, so it is best to use it in vapor therapy. Today, cassia is often used in confectionaries and potpourri.
