COMPOSITION

Everest Saffron is composed mainly of dried  autumn crocus flowers from Jumla and Dolpo region of Nepal.  Saffron flower has 6 purple petals, 3 golden yellow stamens and one red pistil which has 3 stigmas (filaments). The stigma of the flower is dried to make the spice saffron.

It contains some 28 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds, dominated by ketones and aldehydes. It also contains nonvolatile phytochemicals, including carotenoids, including zeaxanthin, lycopene, and various α- and β-carotenes.

 

ORIGIN/HISTORY

Since ancient times, saffron has been in use for seasoning and coloring food. In addition, saffron was made the official color for the Buddhist priests shortly after the death of Buddha. The dye for the robes is done with saffron. Although saffron has been in use in the past, it was not harvested much. However, the harvest of saffron in Nepal, especially in the Jumla and Dolpo region has increased of late with the growing demand of saffron from the Himalayas.

    I have tried several other brands and different regions saffron came from but so far the best quality of saffron I have got a hold off. I have ordered several times already and still loving it. I would add to regular subscription if it is available.

    Package arrived quickly and was packaged with care. It came sealed and wrapped in a bubble bag for extra protection. Seller followed up with kind email and offered to assist with any questions. Great company to work with.

    Bought this a few months ago and wanted to come back and update on my experience.
    First, I’d like to mention that the item arrived quickly. Seller reached out to me to check and see if I was satisfied with everything and was helpful when I had questions about the product. Customer service is top notch from this family business. The saffron itself is world class, not something you would find in stores. These guys know what they’re doing, great place to source your saffron.

    I wanted to use saffron for my shrimp and lobster. This is the real deal. You should test saffron in water and see if the color runs. If the water remains clear, this is indicative of real saffron threads. This passed the test. It’s expensive but you only need a few strands to provide the flavor. Happy to know that its grown in Nepal.

    Excellent quality as always. The aroma and flavor are second to none. I use it in Tea, Rice dishes, and even a tiny bit when brewing my own beer. Love the tins and the reasonable price.
