Transparent plastic box containing 20 saffron powder capsules.
Saffron filaments come from the flower of a plant called Crocus sativus, or saffron. It blooms for about 20 days, and during that time the growers harvest the flowers by hand from before dawn until noon. The petals are removed from each flower to extract the three stigmas (the filaments), which will be heat-dried to reduce the moisture content to the 5-6% necessary for optimum preservation. The filaments are so tiny that over 100,000 flowers are needed for a kilo of saffron, which is why it is such a costly spice.
Pure saffron powder, without preservatives or food colouring.
Saffron is one of the few spices that give color, flavor and aroma to foods, and the best saffron contains the largest amount of the compounds that impart these characteristics. These compounds are picrocrocin (flavor), crocin (color) and safranal (aroma).

Recommended Use

Spanish saffron is one of the indispensable ingredients for paella, but it is also excellent with fish, meat, casseroles, rice dishes, pasta, sauces, soups (bouillabaisse, for example) and even cakes, cookies and ice cream.

It is best to add saffron to the dish during cooking to take maximum advantage of its aromatic power. When making paella, for example, the saffron threads are crushed and added to the broth about 5 minutes before adding the broth to the rest of the ingredients.

This saffron comes in a handy format. It seems to keep the flavor in small capsules. Definitely gives a different touch to the dishes. Strongly recommended.

pure Saffron

If any Italian chef thinks that saffron in Italy is good, it is not as good as from here and there are few details I can underline about it. It is in capsules (one for 2/3 people at the most)
It is strong and taste is as good as ten thousands years ago. Surprised? I have past life memories in Egypt! It is fabulous. In Uk it is impossible to find this saffron even though I tried with Waitrose and some Indian spice shops too. Being Milanese and living in Wales is not easy and that is where Ibergour came in and it did because I was desperate to find Saffron with capital S.
Saffron works with spaghetti and more than ever with risotto rice and seps! I do not even remember if I have found it so good in the old days around Italy.
