The FOUR Saffron Road entrees we taste tested included Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Biryani, Lamb Saag, and Lamb Vindaloo. For people on the go looking for healthy alternatives, these frozen entrees will give you just what you’re looking for like savory spiced sauces, tender cubes of meat, and fluffy rice which taste even better if you mix it all together!

Now what about the Olive Factor?

Saffron Road prides itself on natural, vegeterian fed meat raised without antibiotics. Why is this important? From a scientific perspective, vegeterian fed meat provides a significantly higher level of protein versus fat which can lead to decreased stomach problems and certain cancers.  Recent health statistics point to colon cancer as the third leading cause of death from cancer among women right after breast cancer.  It is also the third leading cause of death from cancer in men. The number one risk factor for colon cancer other than family history is DIET! Traditional processed meat can sit in your colon for  up to 8-10 days!! So choose wisely!

All of their meals are also lower in sodium content compared to other frozen entrees on the market. Sodium can lead to high blood pressure and stroke. So choose wisely!

Chicken Tikka Masala

The Olive Factor: 4

Olive Factor: ★★★★☆ 


The Masala Sauce contains onions, canola oil, tomato paste, ginger garlic and more. All of these contain health benefits. The ingredients are fresh!!! Most importantly canola oil is used rather than margarine or a partially hydrogenated oil!! This entree is lower in calories than the chicken biryani but contains more sodium (even though it is lower than typical frozen meals). Depending upon your dietary needs, one may be a better choice for you than the other. There is 15% iron (RDV) in this entree and 10% vitamin A (RDV) in this entree! There is 8% vitamin C (RDV) and calcium.

Lamb Saag

The Olive Factor: 5

Olive Factor: ★★★★★ 


This tasted excellent!!!! Spinach sauce tasted fresh, and as we know spinach is a food that we need to eat each week! This contains a high amount of protein! It also contains a very high amount of vitamin A: 40% (RDV). Most frozen entrees have less than 10% vitamin A (RDV) so that is key to the nutritious value of this meal.  This is low in calories and high in nutrients.
