Without a doubt we sell the best saffron in the United States. We do this by demanding from the saffron cooperative in Iran that our Sargol Saffron meets our strict specifications which are:
ISO standard 3632 for Category 1 Saffron (190 minimum)
Our coloring strength must be minimum 230 to 250 +/LI>
Our saffron threads are 3/8″ to 1/2″ in length. We only use the part of the stigma that has saffron. As a result, our saffron is free of any impurities.
As for our vanilla beans, we buy them directly from the field, thus assuring excellent quality and price. Most of our vanilla extract comes from our own vanilla beans. All our other extracts are manufactured in the US.
