100% Made in Italy
Our saffron threads come from a selection of organic certified Italian bulbs. We grow them following the principles of the EU Organic Agriculture regulation. Organic Agriculture is a method of agricultural production which exalts the natural fertility of the soil ecosystem and the healthiness of the products without using synthetic products such as fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Saffron harvest is handmade
The fastest method to check the quality of saffron is to look at its colour: the colour of the threads should vary from dark orange to red, and you should be able to detect shades in the colour of the threads. Our stigmas are vivid red.

THE HISTORY OF ZAFFERANO EMILIANO
Zafferano Emiliano experience begins in 2017.

OUR SAFFRON: FIRST CLASS QUALITY
Saffron is one of the most precious and expensive spice in the world, and that is the reason why its
nickname is “red gold”. It derives from the flowers of Crocus Sativus: flowers only have three threads each and they have to be harvested and plucked by hand. It takes about 150.000-180.000 flowers to get a
kilogram of dried product. Our saffron is lab tested to certify the quality of the product.
