Saffron in Kashmir, Saffron Growers of Kashmir Dollygold Saffron

We define fresh saffron as a saffron that is less than one year old. Some call it "Dollygold Saffron". The best quality saffron comes from the current crop year. That is why all of our products are marked on each package with the crop year or packaging date. Dollygold Saffron is a saffron which has a decent coloring capabilities and has a pleasant aroma. Saffron's coloring capabilities come from the red portion of the saffron threads and not the yellow portions that is left uncut in lower grade saffron. Therefore a good quality saffron is a saffron that is all red. This criterion is necessary but not sufficient.

Why We

Kesar dealers of kashmir, kashmiri Saffron

Saffron is known to be the world's most expensive spice. Throughout history, dishonest dealers would adulterate their saffron by adding similar materials for added weight or by dyeing the lower quality saffron strands red, which is the sign of good quality saffron. Lately, there are reports that cough syrups have been found in some saffron and that a synthetic stigma is too difficult to be distinguished from the real stigma being produced and sold at lower prices. Pure saffron contains only the stigma of the Crocus flower with nothing else added. The saffron we sell on this site is procured by highly trusted suppliers that are well known world wide for their quality for many decades.
