In the Super Negin saffron, the farmer must separate the thick strands of red stigma. After separating these strings, it is called Super Negin. Super Negin saffron is usually used by various companies for export to other countries and in the Iranian market, this saffron is rarely found. Super Negin saffron has the best shape and color compared to other types of saffron. Our company (Ana Qayen) uses this type of saffron for export. The total color of this saffron is between 230 and 270 units.
In Sargol saffron, the farmer has to cut the red part above the stigma. When he separates that part, we call it Sargol saffron. In the Iranian market, Sargol saffron is common and almost all domestic sellers sell this type of saffron. The total color of saffron is numerically between 210 and 260 units, which is slightly less than Super Negin saffron.
In Pushal saffron, the farmer has to cut the stigma from the bottom of the red part, when he has done this, it is called Pushal saffron. In this type of saffron, you will see a string that is yellowish, which is a sign of Pushal saffron. This type of saffron is more common in India. Also, the color of this type of saffron is between 170 to 250 units.
Dasteh saffron (in English Bunch)
The main string of saffron is called “Dasteh” or “Dokhtar-Pitch”. For batch saffron, the farmer must separate the saffron strands from the petals, dry them and put them together. This type of saffron is considered as 4th grade saffron. Also, the color of this type is 120 to 150 units.

We can send your requested saffron to Egypt by plane; There are weekly flights to Egypt and we will send it to you this way. It is also possible to send by ship, but it is not worth it at all.
Some customers think that shipping is cheaper for them. Since saffron is an expensive spice, sending it by ship is not a good idea at all and we advise you not to do so. Shipping is reasonable and cost-effective when your cargo is heavy; But it is not a good method for saffron.
When we send you saffron, we send you the documents for customs so that you are able to take the saffron from customs. We also send you laboratory results that show the amount of moisture, color strength and picrocin.
These values listed in the lab results sheet are very important; For example, if the moisture content of the purchased saffron is more than 10%, it seems that you are buying less saffron. Because wet saffron has more weight and when it dries, its weight decreases.
In the following, you can see an example of a health certificate and a waybill.
Do you give the lab results of your saffron to the customers ?
As mentioned earlier, saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. Therefore, fraudsters are always looking for a way to mix saffron with other ingredients. It should be noted that some of them do this professionally and you can not understand unless you know saffron well.
Some fraudsters dye the white part of saffron and sell it as saffron. They do this so professionally and it is difficult for you to understand that.
If you buy saffron from reputable companies, you no longer have to be worried about the purity of saffron. We always test saffron in the laboratory and present the test results to our customers.
