SĒN's Organic Saffron is sourced from the historic plains of Herat, on the edge of ancient Persia. This is by far one of the most potent Crocus-Sativus Saffron flowers available on earth today. It provides benefits and healing properties that are second to none.
There are various grades of Saffron in the market today. Most commercial Saffron is low-grade Saffron made up of the inferior parts of the plant, not to mention the use of dyed corn hair camouflaged as Saffron. In order to benefit from Saffron's many potent properties, you have to first ensure you're getting real, unadulterated, pure Saffron, or what we call, Super Saffron.
The climate and soil also play a huge part in the quality of Saffron at hand. At SĒN, our Super Saffron is a mixture of the Negin and Sargol portions of the crocus sativus plant. These are the portions of the stigmas with the highest concentration of active components. This is what is considered to be pure Saffron.
This Saffron has an ISO quality rating of up to 270, vs. 100-170 when compared to most low-grade, commercial Saffron, available in the market today.
About SĒN: is a socially conscious superfoods and remedies company dedicated to the education and welfare of underprivileged Afghani Citizens. A huge part of our efforts is focused on supporting ethical Saffron farming as an alternative crop to opium in order to help poor farmers struggling through decades of war and hardship. As the employment for women is scarce in Afghanistan, Saffron picking opens up a window of opportunity for the employment of Afghan women.
Every gram you purchase makes it easier for women in Herat to find work since it's mostly women doing the picking, harvesting, and processing of Saffron.
