SAFFRON

As one of the most famous oriental natural products in the world, saffron is cultivated in the northeast of Iran. Its vivid crimson stigma is used as an agent in coloring and seasoning food as well as confectionery products. It is the threads (stigmas) from the saffron crocus sativus flower. In every single flower, there can only be found three saffron stigmas (female part) which are referred to as saffron threads. These threads must be both hand-picked and sorted by hand so that is why it is so precious and expensive.
