I herewith transcribe a bit of news published in the Columbus (OH) Dispatch, 9/9/08: "Cinnamon soon might also be an ingredient in the wrapper around the bread as a way to keep out mold. In addition to its sweet aroma, cinnamon has long been known for its capacity to stop spoilage. Spanish researchers took advantage of that property in developing an anti-mold wrapper. In the Aug.13 issue of The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, they report that, even with bread already tainted with mold, a wax paper made with 6 percent cinnamon oil inhibited the growth by 96 percent, proplonging freshness by up to 10 days. Cristina Nerin, one of the researchers at the University of Zaragoza, said a plastic containing cinnamon is in use commercially."
