Types of saffron

Saffron has different types that are available in the market at different prices. Saffron is divided into three general parts:

 

Super Negin

The most expensive and rare trim of Saffron. Super Negin saffron is known not only for being the most potent but also for its aesthetically pleasing features. Super Negin threads are longer in length and contain no yellow or orange threads. The threads are cut symmetrically and contain no crumbs. When comparing all the trims of Saffron, Super Negin is the most sought after for those who want the best of the best.

Negin

When compared to Sargol and Super Negin, Negin is longer in length and contains some yellow and orange portions of the thread. To put it in simple words, the aroma, quality, and purity are still great

Sargol

means “Top of the flower” in Farsi. Sargol is a sub-type of Persian saffron that derives from the very tip of the saffron thread. Hence, its name “top of flower.” It also has a specific, powerful aroma. Generally speaking, Sargol saffron is considered to be high quality due to its lack of Yellow or Orange threads. Sargol can be easily recognized thanks to its full and deep red color and short threads. On the downside, Sargol saffron often contains crumbs and broken threads.

Pushal

Pushal saffron is the cheapest and most commonly sold Saffron in stores. Since Saffron is so expensive, many distributors take advantage of consumers by selling them the orange and yellow portions of the thread to increase their profit margins. Since these yellow parts of the stigma contain no value, consumers end up paying much more in reality for a inferior product.

Powder

Saffron Powder is prepared by fine grinding (according to usage) of Sargol, Pushal and Bunch parts of the plant. In grinding process, special mechanism and technology is used to prevent loss of saffron properties and active ingredients.Saffron Powder is mainly used in confectionary, spices, beverages, cosmetics and medicine.

Bunch (Daste)

It is the traditional packing of saffron. It’s bounding of saffron thread without any cuts, It’s commonly used as a gift in Persian culture.
