Saffron -

Genuine Saffron is a coloring material obtained from the dried flower-pistils of a species of crocus, but that chiefly marketed is adulterated with turmeric or is made from safflower seed. The imitation is decidedly inferior but is cheaper and more plentiful.

Saffron was formerly employed medicinally but is now principally used in perfumes and for coloring confectionery, etc. Its agreeable flavor, good color and absence of anything injurious, make it an important article.
