As was mentioned earlier, saffron is a precious spice and is used a lot as a spice in food. Iran is the leading producer of saffron in the world and nearly 90 percent saffron of the world is produced in Iran. There are different types of saffron in Iran that we are going to discuss in the following.
Bunch saffron (also known as Dasteh saffron in Iran)
“Dasteh” or “Dokhtar-Pich” is the origin of Iranian saffron and other types of saffron are produced based on this type. In fact, there didn’t use to be other types of saffron in the past and the people just sold this type of saffron. After sometime, they sorted the saffron and different types of saffron appeared. When the farmer picks the strands of the saffron from the petals, he dries them and puts them together.Since the strands are wrapped together, it is called Dokhtar-Pich in English. Since this type of saffron is not sorted at all, it is graded as the 4th grade of saffron. The overall color of bunch saffron varies between 120 to 150 units. Based on the ISO standard, the color strength for the saffron of grade A (that is shown by the Crocin number of the saffron in the lab results) must be greater than 220. The price of this type of saffron is the lowest.
When the farmer picks the strands of saffron he can make different types of saffron. If the farmer cuts the stigma in such a way that it is lower than the red part, it is called Poushal saffron. In this type of saffron the yellowish part of the strand can be seen. As you can see from the figure below, if the farmer cuts the stigma from the part lower than the red part, it is called Poushal saffron. In this type of saffron, you can see a yellowish strand. Before the creation of labs and test results for saffron, the people used to say that this type of saffron is genuine. They believed that the color of yellow showed that the saffron has not been colored and is genuine. However, after the creation of saffron labs and lab analysis of the saffron it is easy to identify if the saffron is mixed with something else. If you want to buy saffron online, try to buy from trustworthy places who offer saffron with certificate.

If the farmer cuts the top red part of the stigma, it is called Sargol saffron (which means the tip of the flower in Persian). Therefore, this type of saffron is all-red. The overall color of this type of saffron is between 210 to 260 units. It is worth mentioning that this type of saffron is used in Iran’s market a lot. Most of the saffron sold in Iran’s market is from this type. Compared to Negins saffron, this type of saffron has broken strands while the strands in Negin saffron are longer and thicker.

This saffron is actually a type of Poushal saffron. if the farmer separates the thick strands of red stigma, this type of saffron is produced. Many companies use this type of saffron for export and have the best appearance and color among all types of saffron. Ana Qayen also uses this type of saffron for export. This saffron has an overall color of 230 to 270 units. It is worth mentioning the production of this type of saffron is a bit difficult and time-consuming, yet the stigmas are long and thick which is alluring to the customers.
“Konj” or white saffron
As you studied earlier, saffron has two parts: sargol (stigma containing three branches) and root (cream). The main part is red and is famous for Sargol (which means the tip of the flower in Persian). The white part attached to the end of the Sargol is called the saffron root or white saffron. The color of these strands is light yellowish-white. Saffron root is also famous for Konj saffron.
Although the color of this part of saffron is very low, there are also saffron compounds in this part. That is why some people use this type of saffron in the treatment of some diseases. White saffron has a good flavor but is much less expensive than other saffron products because of its low color. Saffron root does not contain Crocin. The main color of saffron is Crocin which causes the red stigma of the saffron.
However, White Saffron has all the properties of Sargol saffron. But what is the use of white saffron? Saffron has many medical properties that if you can not buy it because of its high price you can use white saffron (cream) for a much lower price. Traditional medicine used the infused properties of the saffron root. Many famous scientists such as Zakaria Razi, Al-Biruni, and Ibn Sina used saffron to cure diseases.
As was mentioned earlier, saffron root does not have the color of Sargol, yet it includes all the properties of saffron that have led to significant results in new research on saffron, including the treatment of jaundice, sexual and liver enhancement, learning disorders, etc.
