Saffron Blog

Saffron, scientifically known as Crocus sativus, belongs to Iridaceae family and is derived from the dried stigma of the flower of saffron crocus. The flower has three stigmas which are each the distal end of a carpel. Together with their styles – the stalk connecting the stigmas to the rest of the plant- these components are often dried and used in cooking and medicine. Saffron can also be used as a fabric dye. Once the red tufts are separated from the flowers, they are dried and used in various ways.
