PREMIUM SAFFRON EXTRACT FROM SPAIN
Saffron is obtained from the flowers of the crocus species Crocus sativus. It is not only the laborious harvest by hand once a year that justifies the exclusivity of this raw material- each flower also produces only around three saffron threads. We utilise a patented raw material from the region of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain for our product. The delicate saffron threads are dried directly after harvesting and gently processed to an extract. Due to its value, saffron is often counterfeited by adding turmeric or stained corn silk, for example. Therefore, we have the authenticity of our saffron validated by DNA analysis. Additionally, our product is regularly tested for microbial contamination, as well as heavy metal residues.
Saffron contains various carotenoids, including crocin, picrocrocin, and safranal. Our extract is standardised to at least 3.5% of these valuable substances, making our product unique on the market.
- Saffron is not only a spice but also contains valuable antioxidants and carotenoids, including safranal and crocin. These valuable bioactive substances are considered responsible for the plant’s many health benefits.
