A spice more precious than gold.
To understand why to use saffron is to know what makes saffron special in the first place.
Saffron is in a class of its own when it comes to your spice rack. Whether sweet or savory, as a drink or in food, saffron applications are elevated beyond the kitchen.
How would you infuse this Red-Gold into your flavour?
A quality sensory experience
Saffron contains three main pharmacologically active compounds
Taste of pure luxury
Expressed as Picrocrocin, which is responsible for the bitter taste. Picrocrocin is the best authenticity biomarker used for testing for genuine Saffron.
Colour for the heart
A rare water-soluble carotenoid, Crocin is responsible for Saffron’s deep red colour. It fights against free radicals, protecting cells and tissues against oxidation
Aroma for the soul
Expressed as Safranal, which is responsible for Saffron’s unique smell. It has been proven to have high antioxidant potential and a relaxed awakening aroma.
For any industry
Saffron truly is the spice of life because it can be used across a wide variety of cuisines and industries from…
Food and beverage
Know your quantities
For those who have never cooked with Saffron before, we figure it might be daunting to know how to get the best out of your Saffron.
Because using too much can be wasteful and potentially overpower a dish or using too little might not achieve the desired results, especially if you use a lower quality of Saffron.
... and use quality saffron
Never skimp on quality…
No matter what you use Saffron for, the better the quality the less you need to use, the longer it will last and the greater the taste, smell, and colour will be.
