Medicinal benefits of saffron
Saffron is made by extracting essential oils from pure saffron threads.
The result is an intensely flavored extract that can be used to add color and flavor to a variety of dishes. It has a deep red-orange color and an intense aroma with hints of honey, hay and grassy notes.
Saffron is not only a golden-yellow coloring spice, but also a highly potent remedy. At the same time, the spice is effective for depression and PMS.
Its taste can range from slightly sweet to bitter and is often described as earthy and nutty.
