Philippine “Saffron” flowers

Filipino-American brand Tropics

As far as we know, this is not European saffron (scientific name: Crocus sativus).

This is KASUBHA (scientific name: Carthamus tinctorius), also widely known as safflower.

Packagers of Philippine ingredients have opted to label it “Saffron” in English.

The label says:

Ingredients: Dried stigmas of crocus flower (saffron)
