Saffron is a fragrant, purple-red thread made from the dried stigmas of a specific type of crocus flower. For centuries, saffron has been used in everything from cooking to medicinal purposes. It has been used by Egyptian healers to treat gastrointestinal ailments, and in Roman times, it was used to promote wound healing and relieve upper respiratory complaints.

Saffron is a magical spice that can do wonders for your body. It has several natural components that have various uses and are even an essential part of food preparation or can be used to heal your home. Manganese is the main ingredient in saffron. It’s also rich in vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium, as well as iron and vitamin B6.

What Makes Our Saffron So Great?
You can tell a lot about the freshness of saffron by looking at the colour of the threads. The most vibrant threads are deep red, and the lowest quality is light orange. Anything in between is less than ideal.
A great way to check the purity of your saffron is by looking for bright red tips, or all-red threads. These are evidence of an all-natural and pure product. A lot of companies today mix their saffron with other ingredients and make it into a powder, which is cheaper and more profitable.
A pure and unadulterated product will have high-quality, high-grade saffron. Grade 1 saffron has deep vivid red stigmas, of which you can find none in any other grade. Most saffron products display their classification on their pages.
