Saffron Price

Pricing is the most important process (item) for buying the good and all of us pay attention to this item especially the popular goods such as Saffron. We all use mainly saffron (threads or Powder)as a flavoring & coloring & aromatic in varieties of our foods, drinks, desserts, pastries, and beverages, pharmaceutical especially in family and national celebrations so we should follow the saffron with these items:

High Flavoring & Strength Coloring& High Aromatic

We never reach to these items unless we select pure and natural saffron. Even if you follow the health and safe of your foods, drinks and everything you must use the pure and natural saffron.


But one question!! Why shall we use or buy pure and natural saffron?

Because we searched and found that Industrial saffron powder or Industrial saffron color are harmful and even you can get more extract with high coloring strength of pure and natural saffron if you do this way.

Also we recommend you to select saffron dried threads against saffron powder. Why.


Now we are going to serve this matter why pure and natural saffron is expensive?

We paid to this matter in the post ago but there are the other factors (items) that we should pay more attention to them. (This is an important matter that we can’t finish it with several articles)

  • The Quality: The pure and natural saffron threads or powder with sealed packing of origin and Organic, ISO or international certification has high price. You should pay high attention to these items. The saffron dried threads or saffron powder should control according on international quality control organizations from harvest raw materials to clean, sort, pack, detect metal, fumigate vacuum, inspect and load in containers if you would like to supply pure and natural saffron.
  • The Packing: We all know that saffron is very sensitive and must protect it from air and light so all of the suppliers and sellers pay much attention to this item and packaged in beautiful and gorgeous designs.
  • Brokers or Packers: most of us buy Spain saffron or United States Saffron or India saffron and Afghanistan saffron while these countries are growing and harvesting saffron lower than 10 % annually with lower quality and import more in bulk from Iran. In fact more than %90 of world production of saffron with high quality comes from Iran every year. Then the imported Saffron is mixed and reprocessed with lower grade Spanish (La Mancha) and Portuguese saffron (assafroa) before being packaged in beautiful designs. After that they will sell higher price. Even Indian saffron isn’t from India. In fact Indian Saffron mixed with cheaper Iranian saffron then marketed it as “High-grade Kashmir saffron”. 

The brokers or packers buy Iranian saffron with the highest quality and the international standards in bulk then they mixed and reprocessed them with lower grade and packed in beautiful and gorgeous designs. This is secret of high price of saffron. You could reach or find this fact just a bit of searching on the Social networking. Also you should know that Iranian suppliers and exporters are proved to have the high quality, the international standards with the gorgeous and beautiful packing. The purpose and vision of us is to be the “acknowledged world leader in saffron straightly.

The saffron has high role as flavoring and coloring in the most of food such as saffron rice, saffron stew, roasted saffron meat (kind of fish, chicken, beef, lamb, duck),kind of Iranian Kabab and etc.

I love serving saffron rice in my whole meal especially in family celebrations. The saffron adds such a lovely, bright golden color to the rice. Saffron rice has a delicate, floral aroma that you can’t duplicate with any other spice. Saffron rice recipe is super easy to make for a large crowd, and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s also very pretty and festive.

I search about saffron a lot on the Internet network for a long time and I learn many things about it. I know and understand nicely that saffron price is expensive in all global market especially if you are buying pure saffron with power flavor and color so I searched and found the new way to get the most extract with lowest amount of pure saffron. I and my families or friends now do this way when I make saffron rice, and it makes a big difference on flavor. The rice becomes rich with saffron flavor and aroma.

Servings: 4-6 , Prep Time: 5, minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • Enough saffron extracts (Using of ice instead boiling water for getting more extract)
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion minced (about 1/2 cup) then fry it.
  • 3 cups white rice
  • 3 3/4 cups chicken stock, or substitute water + extra pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp salt

you should get ready your materials especially saffron extract because in this way you will need a bit time if you are going to get the most extract of saffron.


First of all the rice should soak in salt water for 30 minutes(this is very important in the first step). After this period of time you should drain the rice and wash it. Then pour the rice with some water into the large pot on the heat .Next add olive oil, fried onion, some salt and saffron extract into the rice and mix well until the color is uniform.

After you should increase the heat to boil water and rice attract it (2 - 3 time stair material), reduce heat to low.

Finally cover the pot to steep rice. Let the rice cook for 20 minutes, or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is tender.

In the time, rice prepared to wait 10 minutes until the rice from the heat and cool slightly.

I suggest you to eat it. It is delicious and aromatic.

Carbohydrates in The Saffron

The nutritional value of saffron makes it an excellent choice for health so saffron is not just excellent fragrant or power coloring but it's good for you because  Ario saffron contains energy-giving fructose ,several essential vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals, plus dietary fiber for better health, digestion and blood glucose control.
Our body uses carbohydrates as its main source of energy and as such we need a good amount to keep us going through the day, especially if we are involved in any form of exercise.

How many Carbohydrates should I eat each day?

The general recommendation is to have 50-60% of your calories come from carbs. If you are on a 2000 calorie diet, 1,000 - 1,200 calories (multiply 2,000 by 0.50 and multiply 2,000 again by 0.60) should come from carbohydrates. Since carbs contain 4 calories per gram, you should eat between 250 and 300 grams (divide 1,000 by 4 and divide 1,200 by 4) of carbs each day.
Ario saffron is a good source of carbs. 100 g of Iranian saffron has about 65.37 g of carbohydrate.
