'Iris Aromatic Herbs' is a new company, which was founded with the vision of

promoting, the excellent quality and high biological value aromatic herbs that

originate in the fertile hellenic land.

 

Crocus Sativus Linnaeus (commonly known as saffran), is a native plant of the

hellenic nature that it was first cultivated, during the Middle Minoan era (1600 B.C.).

From the ancient times until today, it is considered as a precious pharmaceutical

plant. This is due to the numerous therapeutic properties it has got, that make it a

youth elixir.

 

Hippocrates, Asclepius, Dioskorides, and Galen, among of many other physicians

and pharmacologists of antiquity, used it as an essential ingredient into their healings.

Research on the crocus healing properties, continues, showing impressive results until

today. Indeed, crocus is an excellent aphrodisiac and emmenagogue. Moreover, it

conduces to the emotional balance.

 

Crocus has intense scenting, colouring and flavouring properties, as well. Its dried

stigmas are used in cooking, to add colour and flavour. The aroma of crocus is lightly

iodine. It has a special bitterish flavour and gives bright yellow colour.

 

It blends harmonically in sauces, rice, pasta, legumes, potatoes, fishes, seafood, fish

soups,meats like the lamb and the chicken. Moreover, it matches in the biscuits and

in the confectionery, in the ice cream, in various bakery products and in beverages

such as the tea, the coffee and the water.

 

In Greece, crocus thrives only on a certain region, because it needs special climatic

conditions. Qualitatively, it is the best one in the world. Its clearly more intense

aroma make it a unique product in its kind. And it has a high colouring strenght as

well.

 

Crocus flowers evolve every October. Their blossom lasts about twenty days. For a

kilogram of dried stigmas, there are needed about 150.000 blossoms, the ingathering

of which is done by hand. It is an extremely arduous work that requires craftsmanship.

Its packaging is done by hand as well, so that a sublime quality product is being

ensured.

 

The cultivation of crocus is our uninterrupted family tradition, for more than sixty

years. Now, we master the highest expertising levelness in its processing. The

stigmas drying is slowly being done, so that their nutrients are being maintained

inalterable. Having gained invaluable experience, we can offer to you the best crocus

stigmas in the world.
