Our pure saffron (kesar) is sourced from a single verified plantation in Pampore, Kashmir - a 20 minute drive from our head office. It is the rare IS Grade - A1 or Mongra/Mogra identifiable by its deep-red / maroon stigmas.
The world's finest saffron strain with very high levels of Safranal, Crocin and Picrocrocin which lend it an intense honey-like aroma, vivid colour and characteristic taste that is bitter at the start but ends with a sweet afternote.
Aagur's saffron has a very high colouring strength (230+) and post infusion, the deep-red/maroon threads bloom into thick bright red strands.
Crocin and crocetin are carotenoid pigments and responsible for saffron’s red color. Studies reveal that both compounds may have antidepressant properties, protect brain cells against progressive damage, improve inflammation, reduce appetite and aid weight loss
Safranal which gives saffron its distinct taste and aroma may help improve your mood, memory, and learning ability, as well as protect your brain cells against oxidative stress.
An aphrodisiac that may reduce PMS symptoms and also uplift mood giving it the nickname "sunshine spice".
A prized culinary ingredient that is extremely beneficial to one's health. A must-have in one's kitchen.
Store in Aagur's original air-tight glass jar and keep in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.
