You might imagine that saffron has different flowers or the way of growing these saffrons is different! But it is not. When cleaning the saffron flower, the saffron stigma is cut into different lengths, each of which has a name. Maybe this question has occurred to you, what is the difference between the types of saffron in terms of quality and price?

1) Sargol saffron

Sargol saffron is the same saffron that is mostly prepared in one-gram and one-maghali packages for daily use, and it is prepared from the beginning of the stigma or the head of saffron. Sargol saffron has a high coloring power and a pure flavor.

In Sargol saffron, there is no information about the yellow part that saffron has or the saffron root, and only the stigma part or the cut thread is available in a completely separate and clean form. Also, this type of saffron has more pieces and broken parts compared to other types of saffron.

Pushal saffron is a saffron that has red stigmas, along with some cream (between three and five millimeters). The production of this type of saffron is at the beginning of the harvest season. Also, this flower has more survival than other saffron flowers because it has some cream along with its stigmas. In a natural state, from every 100 kilos of saffron flowers, approximately one kilo of Pushal saffron is taken.

They are usually women. Also, this type of saffron is better and more economical in terms of price than other grades of saffron. Dokhtarpich saffron is one of the most beautiful types of saffron, which has a lot of demand among different strata of society.

5) Saffron root

At first glance, you might think that the saffron root is the same saffron root that is in the soil, but it is not. The stigma of saffron, which is the main part of saffron, has a white part at the end, which is called the saffron root.

The saffron root has all the properties of the red parts of saffron and does not have the power to color the stigma. This type of saffron has a much lower price than other types of saffron, but it has the properties of saffron completely

Characteristics of the best saffron

All over the world, standards have been established to determine the best saffron. These standards show that no additional substances have been added to saffron and that saffron is completely pure and natural. For this reason, to know the best saffron, you can refer to the standard signs on the product. If saffron does not have standard marks, it may be fake and not of good quality.

These standards are different in each country. In Iran, standards 1-259 and 2-259 are used to determine the quality of the best type of saffron. This standard checks the quality of saffron in terms of aroma, color, and taste.

You should note that high-quality saffron does not have artificial color. It means that saffron should not be dyed. Because some people dye the cream and sell it instead of the stigma, or make the stigma of other flowers red and introduce it as saffron.

Usually, the stigma of other flowers is shorter than the main stigma of saffron and does not have the chemical compounds of saffron. Also, saffron powder and ground saffron are more likely to be fake, because red soil may be added to them or other red spices may be combined.
