Saffron threads are the brilliantly colored red-burgundy dried stigma of the blue saffron crocus flower, Crocus sativus. Individually hand collected, it is easy to understand why Saffron is one of the most revered and expensive spices in
the world. It has been used for centuries as a culinary flavor, a therapeutic botanical in many traditional medicines, as
a natural dye and as a coveted beautifying agent. Anyone that has cooked with saffron will know that it will infuse any dish with a deep orange to red color. This brightly colored pigment in saffron known as crocin is a uniquely protective antioxidant. The deeper the color and the more intense the flavor profile, the higher concentration of crocin content in the stigma. Due to its expensive nature, there are many grades of saffron available. Organic Traditions offers the highest quality, Certified Organic Saffron from Kashmir, India, one of the world’s most celebrated regions for saffron. Saffron’s quality can be identified by the depth and strength of its color and taste profile. Lower quality saffron is thin, brittle, dry and orange-red in color. Organic Traditions offers the most exquisite saffron in the world. The intensely deep red-burgundy stigmas, indicating a higher crocin content and treads that are plump, thick and somewhat moist are all indicators of exceptional quality.
