Did you know that
-Although about 20 species of saffron are native to Greek flora, nowadays Crocus sativus is the only species being cultivated, in the rural area outside the city of Kozani, in northern Greece.
-The krocus flower can usually grow as high as 10-12 cm above the ground.
-About 150.000 krocus flowers are required for a kilogram of the final product, which consists of the flower’s dried stigmas.
-30.000 krocus flowers per day is the quantity the fastest saffron gatherer can gather.
-Saffron types are graded by quality according to laboratory measurements of such characteristics as crocin (colour), picrocrocin (taste) and safranal (flavour) content. Greek Red Saffron, a pure product of the Greek agriculture, is considered the best in the world.
- It has a coloring strength of 256, verified by laboratory reports, which is 66 points higher than the minimum international standard for all saffron.
-Recent research concerning the secrets of red saffron is multi-faceted and new discoveries are continuously being made. Experiments have confirmed many of the plant’s beneficial properties traditionally accepted in the past by folk medicine, such as its anticonvulsive, digestive and antiseptic action, while new medicinal applications have also been discovered. We are now certain that the stigmas possess strong antioxidant properties and neutralize free radicals; while it has also been proven that their use helps boosting memory.
-As of 1992, Greek Red Saffron has entered the “Register of protected designations of origin”.
