Why is saffron so coveted and rare? Saffron comes from a plant, a crocus that blooms only one week a year and delivers three stamens – three threads – only, which are delicately and carefully picked by hand. It commands a price that makes it the most expensive ingredient in the world, more even than caviar or rare black truffles. Each thread is painstakingly dried. To get an idea of just how rare it is, you need 150 flowers for one mere gram of saffron. This makes it so prized.
All our saffron comes from Spain, and we only source the most premium brands in the world, like Mancha and La Dalia. Saffron is essential for many incredible dishes and recipes, like Spanish paella for example, or risotto Milanese. The deep yellow color of saffron rice is a thing of beauty, and we love the deep, earthy, and potent flavor this spice delivers. Unfortunately, there is a big black market for saffron, where fraudulent saffron is masked as the real thing, and sold at steep prices. This is why it’s so important to have a reputable saffron supplier, especially if you’re buying saffron in bulk. We carry 100% pure and authentic saffron, without any chemicals or water added, never adulterated, so you can buy with whole confidence that you’ll be receiving premium saffron. You can rest assured that Gourmet Wholesaler only supplies the best saffron in the world, at competitive prices.
