Organic Traditions Saffron Threads

Organic Traditions Saffron threads are the brilliantly coloured red-burgundy dried stigma of the blue saffron crocus flower, Crocus sativus. Individually hand collected, it is easy to understand why Saffron is one of the most revered and expensive spices in the world. It has been used for centuries as a culinary flavour, a therapeutic botanical in many traditional medicines, as a natural dye and as a coveted beautifying agent. Anyone that has cooked with saffron will know that it will infuse any dish with a deep orange to red colour. This brightly coloured pigment in saffron known as crocin is a uniquely protective antioxidant. The deeper the colour and the more intense the flavour profile, the higher concentration of crocin content in the stigma. Due to its expensive nature, there are many grades of saffron available. Organic Traditions offers the highest quality, Certified Organic Saffron from Kashmir, India, one of the world’s most celebrated regions for saffron. Saffron’s quality can be identified by the depth and strength of its colour and taste profile. Lower quality saffron is thin, brittle, dry and orange-red in colour. Organic Traditions offers the most exquisite saffron in the world. The intensely deep red-burgundy stigmas, indicating a higher crocin content and treads that are plump, thick and somewhat moist are all indicators of exceptional quality.

Usage Instructions

Organic Traditions Saffron can be used in a variety of creative ways. Boil a pinch in water to create a delicious and soothing tea alone or combined with 1 teaspoon of Organic Traditions Vanilla powder and 1-2 teaspoons of Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup. Saffron works best when it is infused in hot liquids or when it is ground or blended so that the beneficial compounds can be released. Add saffron to soups, stews, curries, rice dishes, sauces and more. To create a nourishing, low-glycemic, antioxidant rich smoothie add a pinch of saffron in your blender with your favourite Organic Traditions superfoods.

Refrigeration not required. Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
