Presentation of Organic Ginger from Madagascar - Max Daumin

Saffron from Afghanistan is renowned as one of the best in the world. The saffron grown by Karima, in the Herat region, is truly exceptional, characterized by subtle aromas evoking notes of raisins, prunes and dried straw. What we have selected is the most valuable part of saffron: the intense purple stigmas, lacking the yellow style that connects the pistil to the base of the flower. This variety is commonly called "neguine saffron".


Max Daumin has always appreciated nature, plants and the use that we can make of them in terms of gastronomy! Naturally curious, he is constantly ready to explore new flavors, scents and aromas. Having inherited the passion for spices from his mother, born in Madagascar, Max decided to reproduce her use of it: always use a freshly ground spice for an explosion of flavors.

All the delicious aromas of spices fade and degrade quickly once ground, so Max Daumin had the idea of ​​storing freshly ground spices in small cartons to preserve their delicious scents from light, air and humidity. humidity. Simply for the taste: Independent sensory analysis demonstrates the taste superiority thanks to the carton compared to traditional packaging (glass jar, tinplate):

- for olfactory perceptions: + 56% at 2 months, + 72% at 6 months

- for taste perceptions of: + 44% at 2 months, + 59% at 6 months


Saffron is a spice intended for infusion. To prepare a saffron infusion, start by heating water to a lukewarm temperature. Then let your saffron infuse for 2 hours so that it releases all its scents and aromas. Use this infusion subsequently for your culinary preparations.
