Kashmiri Saffron is the only Saffron in the world cultivated at an altitude of 1800m above sea level, ideal for exquisite quality saffron harvest.
We take pride in the quality of our organic saffron, which is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides. We carefully source our saffron to ensure it is of the highest purity and quality. Our saffron has a dark red colour, a potent aroma, and a soft, silky texture with wide and flat stigmas, which sets it apart from other saffrons in the market. When mixed with water, the red stigma imparts a strong yellow colour, making it an excellent ingredient for cooking, baking, and traditional herbal medicine.

Rich in Antioxidants: Kashmiri Kesar Saffron is packed with powerful antioxidants, including crocin, crocetin, safranal, and kaempferol. These compounds are known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and neuroprotective properties. Studies have shown that crocin and crocetin in saffron play a role in improving mood, memory, and learning ability.
Enhances Mood and Alleviates Depression: The active compounds in saffron, especially safranal, have been linked to promoting serotonin levels in the brain, which can help elevate mood and combat depressive symptoms. Clinical trials suggest saffron might be as effective as certain conventional treatments for mild to moderate depression.
Supports Visual Health: Saffron has been shown to contain natural compounds that support the health of the retina and visual performance. In studies, daily consumption of saffron was associated with improved visual function in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
