El Avion saffron threads 1g jar


One gram of premium quality saffron threads from Castilla La Mancha. This is a good store-cupboard size jar for some-one who uses saffron intermittently. It keeps for years in dry, dark conditions and some say gets better with age. Category 1 saffron needs to measure a minimum colouring strength of 190º. This is because of the quality of the crop, and the formidable handling during harvest and production. Jose Maria Gomez Mira SA collects only the highest quality saffron under the brand El Avion. Among other controls set by ISO they ensure that the product contains less than 5% extraneous filaments, such as the yellow stamens which impart no quality to the saffron at all.
