What is known as saffron spice, is the extracted, then dried filaments (the female organ) of Crocus Sativus flower often called Saffron Flower. Saffron, with its impressive variety of plant compounds that act as antioxidants, extremely subtle and pleasant aroma, has long been the world's most costly spice (due to its excessive labor intensive harvest and rarity) and used mainly as a medicine, flavoring, coloring, and fragrance amongst elite, and as natural dye for sacred ceremonies and ritual purposes. Although some doubts remain on its origin, it is believed that saffron originated in Persia. The all-red stigma is the strongest part with highest contents. Yet saffron is not all of the same quality and strength.

Directly (threads)

Simply add a pinch of threads if for cooking, or few threads to your beverage of choice.


Grind (powder)

To draw out the maximum flavor, color and aroma of saffron, grinding and soaking is suggested.

This method is usually applied when cooking or using saffron as food coloring. The modern technique is to grind saffron threads in a grinding machine, and mix the powder in small amount of hot water and allow it to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes before using.

The traditional method is to grind threads in a stone or cast iron mortar with a pestle. Little sugar can be added if it is difficult to grind threads due to its moisture content, and again mix the powder in small amount of hot water, cover it and allow it to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes and then use the liquid as required.

The soaking process can also be done with ice, instead of hot water. Add the powder to a bowl of ice (cubes or crushed), mix and allow it to infuse until the ice melts and then use the liquid as required.



Crushing saffron threads manually is also a quick yet effective way to draw out the flavor, color and aroma, before adding it to your choice of food or beverage

Saffron is best stored in airtight container (preferably glass), in a dark, cool and dry place. Saffron will not spoil and can last several years if stored properly (up to 6 years if stored professionally), but it will quickly lose its aroma, flavor and color characteristics if exposed to air, humidity, or direct sunlight for long periods.

Saffron is generally a safe spice in standard consuming amounts and does not cause adverse effects.

As a dietary supplement, it is safe to take up to 1.5 grams of saffron per day. However, only 30 mg of saffron per day is enough to reap its health benefits, and can be taken for up to 26 weeks consecutively.

On the other hand, high doses of 5 grams or more can cause poisoning. Pregnant women should avoid such high doses, as it may cause miscarriage.

As with any medicine, consult your healthcare professional before taking saffron for a specific treatment.
