Selling saffron in Mecca
As was said, there are different types of saffron in Mecca. Saffron is sold in 5 types. Types of saffron are Negin, Sargol, Pushal, Dasteh, and Konj.
Saffron is a plant with a purple flower with 6 beautiful petals that protect 3 red stigmas. These three red stigmas are the same delicious substance with a lot of color and aroma and are prepared with a lot of effort.
This type of saffron has a wonderful color and appearance and is very fragrant. In this type of saffron, three stigmas are connected and are smooth and without fractures. This has made this type of saffron have a better appearance and a higher price than Sargol saffron.
It is the most consumed and common type of saffron for people to use in Iran and consumers are more familiar with this type of saffron. In Sargol saffron, which is pure saffron, the creamy part or the whiteness of the saffron is completely removed and only the red part remains.
In this type of saffron, saffron cream (white part) is separated from under the flower, so that the stigmas will have 2-3 mm of cream. At the end of the stigmas of the three branches of saffron, there is some yellow or white, which is called Pushal saffron.
Dasteh (Bunch in English) Saffron
This type of saffron is a complete string that has the red and yellow parts of saffron together. So that the yellow part is about 30 and the red part is about 70% of it. In this type of classification, saffron is intact and the stigmas of the three branches of saffron are not separated from the white part of saffron (or saffron cream).
Konj or white saffron
After the rhizome is removed from the bunch, the root or white part, which in Iran is called the corner or white saffron, remains; This part has more aroma, but the red part of saffron has more valuable ingredients.
Do you give saffron with lab results?
It should be noted that we always test saffron in the laboratory. When we send saffron to any other country, besides the documents that are required to clear the saffron from customs, we always send the laboratory results. You can see the moisture, strength of color, and aroma of saffron in the lab results.
For example, the moisture of saffron should not be more than 10%, because if it is higher than this amount, the weight of your purchased saffron will be less after purchase. This is one of the best cheating methods. The moisture of our saffron is below 7%, showing that the saffron does not have a lot of water.
