Saffron recipes​

Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world. For this reason, Saffron is sometimes referred to as the 'red gold'. Saffron is used for its health-promoting effects and as a spice in different famous dishes as well as fusion recipes of famous chefs.​

Reasons to use Saffron in the kitchen are:

Saffron is known for its delicate, soft and rich taste. Saffron also gives a very pleasant smell to dishes that people enjoy well before dinner starts. Saffron spice is used in many traditional dishes in the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South Asian kitchens, such as:

Where our saffron comes from

Our Saffron comes from Italy, Bulgaria, Morocco and India and is produced in the most natural way possible. In both India and Morocco this Saffron is completely hand picked (for an impression of the Saffron cultivation and trade in Morocco, see a short documentary from the BBC: Click here to watch.

And for the atmosphere when harvesting in Morocco: Clikc here. See for the traditional techniques used in Kashmir, India: Click here

With the images of the harvest and the sound of wind in the microphone, you must bear in mind that the time of harvesting is at the end of October - early November, and that in both areas (Marrakech and Kashmir) the temperatures can already be quite low early in the morning.

The Saffron is dried in a traditional way. In a number of Saffron producing countries the Saffron is cultivated by our suppliers with modern technologies, which have been partly developed by our company. Due to the continuous efforts to improve quality, the Saffron is of high quality.

The Saffron is extracted from the flower of the Crocus sativus bulb, also called the Saffron Crocus. Due to the intensive cooperation with the Saffron farmers from whom we buy our Saffron, we are able to deliver a product of high quality throughout the year.

Quality control

We attach great importace to the quality of our product. This is why the quality of our saffron is strictly controlled:

  • our saffron meets the highest quality requirements (Category I according to ISO 3632-2) and
  • has undergone tests in laboratories of Eurofins Scientific, the world market leader in the field of food, environment and pharmaceutical product testing. This is done in 3 different specialized laboratories in the Netherlands and Sweden (see: Eurofins factsheet). The tests are aimed at:  1) determining the most important values (Saffranal, Crocin, Picrocrocin), 2) any (agricultural) chemicals,  3) possible heavy metals (see: ANALYSES at https://eurofinsfoodtesting.nl/en/segments/ herbs-spices/). By carrying out these tests we can offer you a quality product that is safe for the consumer and can also be used in your kitchen.
