Premium Persian Saffron - Super Negin Variety - 2 grams
Why Super Negin Saffron?
Iran (Persia) produces 95% of the world’s saffron, and, Mashhad region in Iran is home to one of the highest qualities of saffron, “Super Negin”. This variety comes straight from the farms in Mashhad, where the crocus flowers are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilizers. It has crimson colored round stigma heads as compared to the flatter blood red colored Kashmir saffron, which is one of the ways to differentiate the two by appearance. The coloring strength (250+), lasting bitterness (95+) and aroma (46+), and longer strands make this variety a favorite among top chefs, bakers, skincare brands and naturopaths and the like.
