Used for its flavour, colour, fra­grance and med­i­c­i­nal prop­er­ties, saf­fron is one of the world's most expen­sive spices. Grown from India to Morocco, and for­mer­ly in many European coun­tries, and even in the United States.

The saf­fron is a very spe­cial spice, with a taste that evokes hon­ey, with a very strong flavour.

It has a very dis­tinc­tive taste rem­i­nis­cent of hon­ey, with woody and earthy notes. Its devel­op­ment depends on both the way it is dried and the way it is pre­pared for use in cooking.

The his­to­ry of saf­fron is that of a spice that has aroused human cov­etous­ness, that has been endowed with numer­ous virtues and that has been trad­ed over thou­sands of kilometres.

Did you know that saf­fron has been cul­ti­vat­ed in Europe for its med­i­c­i­nal prop­er­ties and not only for its flavour in cook­ing? Discover all the uses of saffron.
