The spice saffron is derived from the flower Crocus sativus, commonly known as the “saffron crocus”. The taste and its iodoform or hay-like fragrance derives from two very special ingredients of the spice: picrocrocin and safranal. It also contains a carotenoid pigment, Crocin, leading to a rich, golden-yellow hue when saffron is added to food. Saffron has been traded and used for over 4000 years and Iran accounts currently for approximately 90% of the production worldwide. Domo Taste provides a top selected special type of saffron called NEGIN, which is known for its high concentrated colour and the longest, thickest and most intensively smelling and tasting flower stigmata. The package consists of a crystalline preserving jar, which prevents any loss of the unique and exquisite flavour. Domo Taste saffron, sourced from Iranian farmer families, is processed in our own European HACCP certified facilities, allowing us to sell saffron of highest quality for bottom prices (30-40% under the market price).
