What to know about True Saffron:

The most expensive spice, saffron is derived from the stigmas of the crocus sativus plant. There are many adulterated versions still being sold, including American Saffron. Click here for further information on how to tell the difference between true saffron and fake saffron.

Saffron is also graded according to ISO Standards. The higher the crocin (colouring strength) the better the aroma and flavour too.

So fresh and vibrant November 5, 2012
Reviewer: Thea from Alberta  
So fresh and vibrant, infuses rice dishes with a delightfully subtle bitter quality and a deep, rich golden tone
