Spanish Paella should have Saffron
“I am three months pregnant but had recently eaten Spanish seafood paella. I heard saffron can cause miscarriage, and I’m really worried now.”
Many people got to know about a spice called saffron from the Spanish seafood paella. It is the pistils from the flower called saffron crocus, and had been harvested and processed to become a type of spice.
From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, saffron is warm in nature, can invigorate the blood and activate the Meridians, clear stasis and relieve pain. It is suitable for individuals with stasis condition, the amenorrhea and oligomenorrhea problem, and those with postpartum lochia. Since saffron can invigorate the blood, it is not suitable to be eaten during pregnancy or menstruation.
Certain drama series would depict how a person would suffer a miscarriage right after consuming the saffron soup or even touching the spice itself. This is merely for dramatic effect. It would actually take a high dosage of saffron to see a significant impact on the fetus. The use of saffron in Spanish seafood paella is minimal, hence, there is no need to worry.
