Grade A Persian Saffron in beautiful traditional tin container
From the gently sloping terrain of hills that face the warmth of the sun comes the finest saffron on earth. For over two thousand years, the saffron harvest has been part of the culture of Qaen, Iran, also known as The City of Safffron. We continue this proud tradition as we partner with a network of growers who only deal in authentic saffron of the highest quality.
Golden Spice’s mission is to make premium saffron affordable to all. Our saffron is the highest-rated saffron in the world, also known as Sargol. Translated from Persian, Sargol means ‘top of flower’, which is a fitting name, as this type of saffron is derives from the very tip of the saffron thread. Each strand is hand-picked and packaged without any flavour enhancers, chemicals, or preservatives.
The dark-red strands offer a strong aroma and deep, rich flavour (unlike strands of lower quality, which are often yellow and arrive in a powdered form).
When using saffron of this quality, a little does a lot – that’s why this is the best saffron in the world.
Outside of the kitchen saffron is valued as part of the medical kit used by holistic, natural healers. Mentions of saffron appear in the writings of Galen and Hippocrates where it was used as to relieve coughs, colds, stomach ailments, insomnia, scarlet fever, and even heart trouble. Modern healers have found saffron to contain powerful compounds that can assist in treating Alzheimers, depression and menstrual discomfort.
