The name Saffron comes from the Arabic word, ”zafaran” which means yellow and it is the official color of Buddhist robes in India.

The best quality saffron has a deep red color, honey-like aroma with a delicate taste but musky and earthy.

Commercial saffron is primarily produced in Spain, India, and Iran.

It takes around 14,000 stigmas to produce only one ounce of saffron threads.
