"Red Gold"


Saffron is obtained from the threads of the crocus species Crocus sativus. People have been cultivating saffron for over 3000 years. In many cultures, the spice has always been appreciated because it harmonizes with both hearty and sweet dishes and drinks, giving them an incomparable taste. It is also suitable as a natural dye.

Saffron harvesting and further processing are extremely laborious. For example, picking the saffron threads can only be done by hand. Saffron is therefore the most expensive spice in the world: the "red gold". However, only very small quantities are also required to achieve the desired aromatic and color effects.
Saffron naturally contains many important nutrients and vitamins and has proven health-promoting effects.
In addition to culinary use, saffron is also used in other areas such as the color and cosmetics industries, for example, in the production of perfumes.
