Saffron Overview

Saffron Saffron is a spice derived from the dried stigmas of the crocus plant (Crocus sativus). It is native to Southwest Asia and is known for its distinctive golden-yellow color and unique, slightly bitter taste. Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world due to the labor-intensive process of harvesting and processing. Saffron has been used traditionally in cooking and herbal medicine for centuries. It is purported to have a number of potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving mood, improving memory, and reducing the risk of certain types of cancer, but more studies are needed to determine its effects.
