  saffron (powder)

 

Thailand

Saffron (fig.),  a spice produced from the dried pistils and styles of the saffron crocus, is often found for sale in Asian markets in powdered form.

 

However, being the world's most expensive spice by weight, a little caution is needed when shopping as often saffron is mixed with other ingredients, ranging from turmeric (fig.) powder to  powdered plastics.
