Saffron is the world's most expensive spice. Native to southwest Asia, it was first cultivated in Greece and is now grown in many countries worldwide. It is also referred to as saffron crocus. Each Saffron flower contains three vivid crimson stigmas. When harvested and dried, the stigmas are used as a seasoning and coloring agent; and Saffron has a long history as part of traditional medicine.
Saffron contains more than 150 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds, along with many nonvolatile active components. The bitter glucoside picrocrocin is responsible for saffron's flavor. Safranal, a volatile oil, gives saffron much of its distinctive aroma. Futurebiotics Saffron Extract contains 90 mg of pure Saffr'Activ Saffron extract per capsule, standardized to a minimum of 0.3% safranal. In addition, it provides crocin and picrocrocin.
