   Cinnamaldehyde, or cinnamic aldehyde, is a yellow oily liquid with a cinnamon odor and sweet taste. Cinnamaldehyde is the aldehyde that gives cinnamon its flavor and odor. Cinnamaldehyde occurs naturally in the bark of cinnamon trees and other species of the genus Cinnamomum like camphor and cassia.


Cinnamaldehyde is used as a flavor and fragrance. Cinnamaldehyde has a good fragrance-holding effect, and can also be used as a fixative.


In food applications, cinnamaldehyde can be used to modulate fruit flavors such as apples and cherries. These flavors can be used in candy ice cream, drinks, chewing gum, cakes and tobacco.


Cinnamaldehyde used in feed, has a good antifungal and bactericidal effect. Cinnamaldehyde can strengthen the movement of the stomach and intestines, and at the same time can promote the secretion of gastric juice and enhance digestion, and increase animal food intake.


Cinnamaldehyde is used in oral care products to have the dual effects of sterilization and deodorization on the oral cavity. It is often used in oral care products such as toothpaste, chewing gum, breath fresheners, etc.

Cinnamaldehyde is also used as a fungicide. Proven effective on over 40 different crops, cinnamaldehyde is typically applied to the root systems of plants. Its low toxicity and well-known properties make it ideal for agriculture. To a lesser extent, cinnamaldehyde is an effective insecticide, and its scent is also known to repel animals like cats and dogs. 

Cinnamaldehyde is also known as a corrosion inhibitor for steel and other ferrous alloys in corrosive fluids. It can be used in combination with additional components such as dispersing agents, solvents and other surfactants. Concentrated cinnamaldehyde is a skin irritant, and the chemical is toxic in large doses, but no agencies suspect the compound is a carcinogen or poses a long-term health hazard. Most cinnamaldehyde is excreted in urine as cinnamic acid, an oxidized form of cinnamaldehyde.
