Golden Saffron, the most expensive

Spice is the most important factor in many dishes for communities around the world. We use spice to increase our satisfaction on particular foods.

Spices could be a bark, seed, root, flower or other substances relate to plants. In addition to taste, people may use spices for preserving and coloring foods.

Spice is generally quite cheap, and even free in many South East Asian countries. They have grown many kind of plants as source of spices.

Saffron plants with their beautiful flowers 

Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world. The plant grows well in the Eastern Mediterranean or Persian, and the market is dominated by this region. We may find this spices in the Northern America and European markets as well recently.

The Saffron best quality called as “red gold,” cost US$ 65 per gram or 454 x US$ 65 = US$ 29,510 per pound. For comparison, gold price (24 carat) is US$ 41.53 per gram. Thus, best quality of Saffron is much more expensive than gold.

Saffron sold in grocery

We found the cheapest price of Saffron is US 16.5 per 0.06 ounce (1.7 gram) in Walmart super center. We do not know the quality of this kind of Saffron. It is said “Spanish Saffron.”

The question is why Saffron spice is expensive? It is because processes that involve from growing plant to be spices are laborious and capitalized.

Have you tried or tasted a Saffron spice?

  1. Thanks for the interesting read. I can't help out at all because, as far as I know, I haven't tried or tasted saffron. It must be something if it costs that much.

  11. Such an interesting post. I don't use a lot of spices in my cooking, although I should. I just don't know enough about them or which ones are best for which dish! Also, getting good spices in my area is like finding hen's teeth!!! Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment:)

  17. I'm a bit of a foodie, and I love to cook and experiment with new spices and flavors. But... I've never played with saffron. I have a feeling the Spanish stuff they sell at WalMart may be okay to make paella, but I doubt if it's anywhere near as good as the high-dollar stuff.
