(New) 2 Grams Afghanistan Saffron Powder, Sustainably Sourced Saffron (Fine Grind)
HERAY SAFFRON POWDER is a highly prized and sought-after spice derived from the saffron flower (Crocus sativus). It is known for its vibrant color, distinct aroma, and delicate flavor. Our Saffron powder is made by grinding the dried stigma of the saffron flower into a fine POWDER, which is then used in various culinary applications.
Due to its intense flavor and coloring properties, saffron powder is often used sparingly in recipes, adding a unique and luxurious touch to dishes.

Beyond its culinary uses, saffron powder has a long history of traditional medicinal applications. It is believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is used in some cultures to promote well-being and overall health.
