Description

Saffron is a spice derived from the dried stigmas of the flower of Crocussativus. It is characterized by its bitter taste and its appreciated aroma.  Its taste and aroma come from its chemical components safranal and picrocrocin. It also contains a carotenoid called crocin, which gives to the food the characteristic golden yellow color.
