Saffron is a valuable spice known as ‘red gold’, picked from the sparce, delicate threads of the saffron crocus. It is a joy to cook with due to its distinctive, savoury aroma and its beautiful colouring. Iran is known for producing the best saffron in the world. Saharkhiz saffrons are premium grade, and have been awarded an exceptional three-star rating by the world’s top flavour institute, the International Taste Institute (ITQI), located in Belgium. Many of our products come with special presentation and packaging, making them ideal gifts.
