So, what is safflor?

Safflor, also known as Carthamus tinctorius, is a flowering plant that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and cooking. The bright yellow to red flowers of safflor contain a potent pigment called carthamin, which has been used as a natural dye for fabrics and foods. In cooking, safflor is often used as a substitute for the more expensive saffron, as it imparts a similar color and flavor to dishes. Additionally, safflor has been found to have potential health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-lowering properties. Overall, safflor is a versatile and intriguing ingredient that can add both color and nutrition to a variety of dishes.
