Moonflowers offers the best saffron type, 'super-negin'.

Negin means diamond in Farsi, this is why the most premium grade of saffron is called the super-negin. The main rule is that the best saffron quality is the one high in crocin (color), picrocrocin (taste), and saffranal (aroma). The super-negin variant has the highest concentration of these three elements. 

It’s a long stemmed, deep red stigma and does not contain orange or yellow threads and does not have crumbs.​

Recognize premium-grade saffron with your senses.


When you steep the saffron threads in water, it should gradually turn into a deep golden, orange hue.​


Saffron smells floral, pungent, honey-like. 


The taste of saffron is a complex yet nuanced flavor. It's velvety, floral, earthy. 

Saffron has a long history in herbal medicine spanning over 2,500 years.

It is a powerful medicinal herb because it contains more than 150 chemical compounds, some of which can have a big impact on health. Different clinical researches have proven that saffron has multiple health benefits, such as antidepressant, boost memory, cancer prevention, heart health and PMS treatment.
