Lookingvibrant’s conference, was with top nutrition gurus to discuss the latest research findings regarding nutrition, etc. One of them, challenged us on the issue that we’re not using enough Cinnamon and that we’re not using enough of it in our Glucose Support, but what he didn’t know is that Cassia cinnamon, the most common strain, contains an ingredient called coumarin that has been found to cause liver damage in a small group of susceptible people. Coumarin is only dangerous in high doses. Because of this, EU officials decided in 2008 to cap use of the ingredient, cinnamon — to between five and 50 milligrams per kilogram of food. Therefore, the ban traditionally is relaxed around the holiday season, when cinnamon takes center stage, but a recent Danish survey found that nearly half of the pastries tested for coumarin levels were way past the legally allotted amount. Now, Danish bakers have been asked to tone it down. But they're not giving up without a fight.
Denmark may soon have to say farewell to everyone's favorite Danish pastry, thekanelsnegle — a luscious cinnamon bun Europe's food authorities say exceeds the EU limit of cinnamon per treat. We're not making this up.
Both Norway and the U.K. have gotten away with lax cinnamon laws, as well.
No One Can Deny The Many Health Benefits of Cinnamon but we use it in our pastries and soups, etc. and There's countless research that shows other ingredients’ effects on oxidation, inflammation, and stabilizing blood sugar naturally such as Amla Gooseberry, Vitamin D3, Calcium, Magnesium, Trace minerals, Vitamin C and Resveratrol,etc. without any dangerous side effects. Thus, you’ll see many of these new ingredients used more and more in our latest custom formulation such as;
