4 Bags of powder saffron, processed following traditional manual processes. Saffron is a spice from the Crocus sativus flower, which is a cousin of the lily. The saffron derives from the stigma and styles — called threads — within the flower itself. Saffron is very expensive due to the difficulty of harvesting it. Farmers must harvest the delicate threads from each flower by hand. They then heat and cure the threads to bring out the flavor of the saffron. This extra labor makes saffron one of the most expensive spices in the world. Use in the kitchen: crumble 7/8 threads of saffron per portion into a cup with a little bit of warm water, leave to rest for ten minutes and add it at the end of cooking to your favorite risottos and dishes. Plus, early evidence suggests that saffron may boost mood, increase libido, and fight oxidative stress. Saffron is generally safe for most people to consume, and it is very simple to add it to the diet.
About the Brand
A cheerful greedy hare, who licks his mustache while the fragrant cloud coming from the risotto tickles his nose: it is the unmistakable image of the Saffron Leprotto, born in Milan in 1963. These are the years of the economic boom and the new brand, in tune with the era, expresses joy and energy: it is young, modern and vital. Those same values symbolically expressed by the bright yellow color of the saffron and which are found in its accentuated flavor, in the intense aroma.
It is no coincidence that even today on the Leprotto saffron sachet we read “strong flavor” to underline the characteristic that has always distinguished the product. Since then, even today, with Leprotto a superior quality saffron has entered Italian homes, born from an authentic corporate culture dominated by two values: perfection in the name of tradition and the drive towards innovation. Even today, Leprotto saffron is in fact an avant-garde product. Thanks to an internal analysis and research laboratory, it is worked with innovative methods and technologies, which allow us to guarantee a very high and constant quality over time.
