There are references to saffron from 2,000 years B. C., being already used in ceremonies, medicine and for its culinary qualities. Ancient books that have survived until today have references of saffron being used in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome where it was used to dye hair or clothes or as a perfume.
In Venice there was a large in ‘red gold’ trade, where the Germans were the main buyers and England saffron reached such fame and value that counterfeits were common practice.
Azafranes Jiloca is a company dedicated to the production of ‘red gold’ in the region of Jiloca.
