Possiblity of contamination of coumarin in cinnamon?
I just read that the spice, cinnamon, can possibly be contaminated with coumarin, causing toxicity to the liver in large amounts. I go through 3 regular size spice bottles of cinnamon a week. I LOVE it, obviously, use it on so many things, actually i crave it. ~~ i think the amount of cinnamon i consume would most definitely qualify as consumption in "LARGE" amount category. Does any one have any advice, or perhaps, valid information that suggests this to be true? i would greatly appreciate any thoughts or knowledge concerning this possible contamimation found in some batches of cinnamon. i think i will have to taper off of it, if it does, because i suspect that i am ADDICTED to it by now! Thanks, ~phyllis~
