So, what is safran?

Saffron is a highly prized and aromatic spice derived from the stigmas of the crocus flower. It is renowned for its brilliant red color, unique flavor, and powerful medicinal properties. Saffron has been used for centuries in a variety of cuisines, including Spanish, Indian, and Persian, and is often used to add flavor and color to dishes such as paella, biryani, and risotto. Its distinct flavor is characterized by a subtle, floral sweetness, with hints of honey and hay. Saffron is also known for its therapeutic benefits, including its ability to boost mood, enhance cognitive function, and alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. Due to its rarity and high cost, saffron is considered a luxury ingredient and is highly sought after by chefs and food enthusiasts around the world.
