About Saffron

Ancient Persians have cultivated saffron since 10th century BC,
Most of the world’s saffron is from Iran, or in other words Iran is the world capital of saffron.
Saffron is the most favored spice in Iran, also is the main souvenir from this land.
Saffron (Crocus sativus) is the dried stigmas of the saffron crocus flower. The crocuses are grown through the spring & summer and in the late autumn are harvested, saffron flowers are hand-picked since mechanical harvesting would destroy them, then dried and packed.
Saffron is harvested early in the morning before sunrise and then dried in hygienic lab conditions, allowing for the highest levels of both crocin and safranal.
Saffron grading is done through laboratory measurement of crocin (color), picrocrocin (taste), and safranal (fragrance) content.
