Saffron Exporters India – Saffron is a very expensive spice, used to flavour and colour food. Saffron originated in the Middle East, but is now also associated with Greek, Indian and Spanish cuisines. The spice is actually the dried stigma (tiny threadlike strands) of the Crocus Sativus Linneaus, a member of the iris family. Each stigma is very small, and innumerable strands go into a one-gram pack of the spice. Since the stigmas are hand-plucked from the individual flowers, saffron’s high cost becomes more understandable.
It is thought that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. Fortunately, a very little saffron goes a long way – it is a spice to be added one thread at a time.
• Do a bit of research on the source and strength of the saffron before purchasing.
• The strength of saffron is judged by its colouring and flavouring intensity.
• Buy from a reliable source as there is a change of contaminating such an expensive spice.
• Always buy sealed packs, after checking the date of packaging.
