does cinnamon contain caffeine

I have a low tolerance for caffeine.  It makes my heart race.  I was told that cinnamon contains caffeine.  I have researched the foods that contain caffeine & only found chocolate.  Is there any truth that cinnamon contains caffeine??

Thank you Barbara Jones

Hi Barbara, Not to sure about caffeine, but it does come with some warnings, just don't take to much of it, its an hallucinogenic, but as for caffeine cant see anything in my spice book, Cooking with spices by C Heal and M Allsop .

Good Luck
