Original Iranian saffron for sale
As was mentioned above, Original Iranian saffron for sale is divided into 5 types.
When you remove the saffron stigma from the cream, the white or almost yellow part remains. This type of saffron is also sold in the market and although its color is low, it has the real aroma and taste of saffron. White safforn (Konj) is the best type of saffron for use in tea, as well as flavoring and aroma of food.
Saffron root does not have the color of Sargol, but 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.
Dasteh or whtie saffron
Dasteh saffron is obtained by stacking and drying complete strands (including stigma and cream). The cream part usually varies from 3 to 5 cm and the stigma part is Shorter or taller, thinner or thicker depending on the quality of the saffron. The overall color of this type is between 120 to 150 units. The price of this type of saffron is the lowest.
In this model of saffron, the stigma (red part) is accompanied by a very small part of the creamy part (yellow part). For Pushal saffron, the farmer is not asked to separate the three feathers of the stigma.
Pushal saffron, due to the fact that the saffron stigma is more than cream, has a higher coloring power than the Dasteh saffron, and its coloring power is to some extent between 170 to 250 units.
Sargol saffron is the most common type of saffron and most customers are more familiar with this type of saffron. In this example, there is no yellow part of saffron or its root, and only the cut part of saffron or its stigma is separate and clean.
Sargol saffron is also known by other names. In some countries is known as All red. Among the types of saffron, Sargol is consumed more than other types in Iran. The overall color of this type of saffron is between 210 to 260 units.
Negin saffron is the same definition as Sargol saffron. In this type of saffron, the three-branched strands of red and thick stigmas are separated from the existing strands.
This type of saffron is the most valuable and expensive type of saffron and has the highest coloring power (240 to 280). The trade of this type of saffron, due to the time-consuming and costly process and more operations required for processing, usually has a decreasing trend in different years. This saffron has the overall color of 230 to 270 units. However, it should be noted that, recently the demand for this type of saffron has increased a lot so that we are exporting only this type of saffron to other countries.
