I love, love, LOVE my saffron! I use it a lot in my cooking. Saffron is a popular spice, albeit an expensive one too! It is rich in many vital vitamins, including vitamin A, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin C. It is also a good source of minerals such as copper, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, zinc and magnesium. Saffron can help in many traditional medicines as an antiseptic, antidepressant, anti-oxidant, digestive and more.
