Afghan saffron is recognised as the best in the world for the fourth consecutive year by the International Institute of Taste and Quality in Brussels.

Tested and confirmed Category 1

NIIDA saffron from Afghanistan has been tested in the Eurofins laboratory and is classified as category 1. This certification guarantees its high quality and richness in active ingredients.

100% pure and natural

Pure and natural saffron. No flavourings, colourings or additives

Handmade harvest

Saffron consists of the thread of the saffron crocus, a rare flower that blooms in autumn. Then the threads have to be pulled out to dry in the sun. This work has to be done by hand.

The World's Most Versatile Spice

The taste of saffron is described as slightly sweet and aromatic. You need only a little saffron to give your food flavour (and colour). Saffron is added to sauces, desserts, liqueurs, cheese, butter and milk.

Powerful antioxidant

The crocetin in saffron, acts as an anti-cancer/anti-tumour agent, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and increasing the anti-oxidative system.

The spice of happiness

In the past few years, a number of published studies have shown a clear depression-reducing effect. Just last year, researchers found that crocin, an active ingredient in saffron (crocus sativus), is a useful addition to the pharmaceutical treatment of major depression.

Saffron for your eyes

One of the most important healing powers of Saffron is its ability to improve vision. Saffron helps to restore the structure and function of the retinal cells by improving the blood supply to the eyes. This counteracts the age-related visual decline. Saffron contains a high concentration of natural crocin and carotenoids that can help protect the lens and retina of ageing eyes.

A great ally for you heart

Saffron is a good source of potassium, which plays an important role in your organism: it is good for the nervous system, helps maintain normal blood pressure and plays a role in keeping muscles strong and supple.

The immune system

Saffron is a rich source of vitamins B (especially B1, B2 and B6) and C, which are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.
