But that's not all! Saffron is also known for its essential oil - safranal. Safranal is the major volatile oil in saffron and is credited with many potential health benefits. It has been studied for its antioxidant, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties, adding a healthful punch to your dishes.

To make the most of your saffron, here's a pro tip: Lightly toast the threads  (5-10 filaments) in a dry pan for a minute before soaking them in hot (not boiling) water. This process, known as "blooming," helps to release the maximum flavor and color from the saffron threads.

Remember, saffron is incredibly potent, and a little goes a long way. Just a pinch can transform a dish from ordinary to extraordinary!

So, why not add a sprinkle of this golden spice to your next culinary creation? Whether it's a paella, a biryani, a risotto, or a simple cup of tea, saffron can elevate your dishes and give them a royal touch.
