Saffron Extract Spice Drops
Saffron spice drops are highly concentrated spice extracts. Add Holy Lama saffron droplets to any dish or drink for an instant hit of flavour, and unlike many dry spices, the spice drops can be added at the end of cooking to adjust the final flavour of a dish. Alternatively use in a spray atomiser for fabulous aromas.
“Spice Drops are a super innovation. I love that ‘just picked’ taste and the way you can mix and blend without any of the traditional prep involved such as grinding or scraping. It gives me more time to play around with spice flavours. There will always be a place in my kitchen for fresh spices – but there’s also space for these drops, too.” Antony Worrall Thompson, MOGB
How are spice drops made?
The finest saffron is selected and then cold-pressed, to keep the best flavour. The crushed spices are passed through a number of processes to finally extract the oleoresin (oil + resin), which is highly concentrated – the ‘essence’ of the spice. Finally this spice essence is finally mixed with a natural emulsifier to make it easy to portion and use in the kitchen.
Why Holy Lama?
Holy Lama is a family business and has been working with spices for over seventy years. They are a member of the British Fair Trade Association. Their production facility has been set up as a Government recognised women’s enterprise, which employs, supports and empowers marginalised women in the local community, in Kerala.
