Cinnamomum cassia is the dry bark of Cinnamomum cassia, an evergreen arbor of Lauraceae, which is mainly distributed in Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and Fujian, among which the production of Cinnamomum cassia oil in Guangdong and Guangxi accounts for about 80% of the world's output, and there are also a small amount of cultivation in Sichuan, Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangxi and Zhejiang.
Cinnamaldehyde is a colorless or yellowish or greenish yellow oily liquid with strong cinnamon aroma. It tastes sweet and spicy and has burning sensation. It is insoluble in water and glycerol, soluble in propylene glycol, miscible with ethanol, ether, chloroform, non-volatile oil and volatile oil, and can be volatile with water vapor.
Cinnamaldehyde has a strong special smell of cinnamon oil and burning aroma, and is widely used in spices, daily chemicals, feed and food processing.
Cinnamaldehyde, as a food mildew inhibitor, is non-toxic or low toxic to human body. Because of its function of preservation, antisepsis and mildew prevention, it is widely used in instant noodles, chewing gum and other snack foods and baked foods such as bread, cake and pastry. It is used as a food mildew inhibitor, a preservative for vegetables, and can also change taste to stimulate consumption.
Cinnamaldehyde has a good function of holding fragrance, and it can make the main flavor more fragrant when used as a flavoring material in flavoring. Because its boiling point is higher than that of other organic compounds with comparable molecular weight, it can also be used as a fixing agent. For example, in soap essence, cinnamaldehyde can be used to prepare essence such as narcissus gardenia, jasmine lily of the valley rose, etc. These essence are widely used in soap, washing powder and shampoo; In food applications, cinnamaldehyde can be used to prepare fruit essence such as apples and cherries. These essence can be used in candy, ice cream, drinks, chewing gum and cakes.
Cinnamaldehyde can promote blood circulation, warm skin and tighten skin tissue. External use for massage can make limbs and body comfortable, and can fully improve the phenomenon of water retention, with a strong role in fat decomposition. At the same time, cinnamaldehyde has good effects on softening and clearing scar fibroma of skin. Therefore, cinnamaldehyde is often used in massage fluid and beauty products.
Cinnamaldehyde can not only be used to modulate various flavors, but also play a dual role in sterilization and deodorization of the oral cavity. It is often used in oral care products such as toothpaste, chewing gum, breath freshener, etc. Chewing gum containing cinnamaldehyde can be used as functional health food. They can have a positive impact on oral hygiene production in a short time. They can not only cover up bad breath, but also really remove the bacteria that cause bad breath. At present, cinnamaldehyde has been used in toothpastes for a long time by toothpaste factories at home and abroad, especially in European and American countries, and the use effect is very good.
Of course, cinnamaldehyde is also widely used in other fields. With the continuous improvement of scientific research level and driven by the demand of downstream industries, cinnamaldehyde products have broad market space and good development prospects in the future.
