Saffron

Gourmetia Saffron from Afghanistan
Saffron Threads in Premium Quality  / Quality Category I (ISO 3632- Pure Natural Farming

In just a few years, the Afghan saffron has been recognized
as the best saffron in the world in terms of its quality for the
eighth consecutive year.  The best climatic conditions provide a special high colouring strength and a unique fragrance.

 

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus.The vivid crimson stigma and styles, called threads, are collected and dried for use mainly as a seasoning and colouring agent in food. Saffron has long been the world's costliest spice by weight.

 

Saffron's taste and fragrance result from the phytochemicals picrocrocin and safranal. It also contains a carotenoid pigment, crocin, which imparts a rich golden-yellow hue to dishes and textiles.
