Basic knowledge of Saffron and distinguishing different strains of Saffron

Did you know for a fact that saffron aka Saffron has been used as a natural remedy for over 90 ailments over the past four millennia?

Today, saffron is mostly used as a unique spice to add attractive flavor and aroma to various dishes. Of course, more and more people are showing interest in the medicinal properties of this spice as natural treatments are becoming more popular. Saffron is often divided into categories based on the country of origin. Currently, the main Saffron factories are Iran, Afghanistan, Spain and Greece.

Persian Saffron is the most popular type of Saffron today. In fact, not only was the cultivation of saffron first found and produced in Ancient Persia, but this region of the world accounts for more than 90% of the total world supply of saffron.

Many third party distributors claim to have "the highest quality saffron in the world" but this is almost always a false advertisement. Fortunately for consumers, the quality and effectiveness of Saffron is truly measurable.

Factors that determine the quality of Saffron

The quality of Saffron is measured by conducting product sample analysis in a laboratory, when examining Saffron there are three main factors to consider. The three most important elements are Safranal, Crocin and Picocrocin.

  1. Safranal (Fragrance)

Type 1 medium > 20-50

International average > 20-50

Saffron Palace average 40-50

The safranal found in saffron preserves photoreceptor morphology (the mechanism of the eye that helps you see objects), visual response and capillary network.

  1. Crocin (Color fastness)

Type 1 medium > 190

International average > 230

Saffron Palace average 260

Crocetin present in saffron is considered an indirect regulator of blood cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. In addition, saffron is a rich source of viboflavin, an essential vitamin for the heart.

  1. Picocrocin (Flavor Strength)

Type 1 medium > 70

International average > 85

Saffron Palace average 110

Picocrocin helps improve digestion, prevent stomach diseases.

Classification of saffron Saffron

What is even more interesting is that there are four main classifications of Iranian/Persian saffron, which are based on the cut of the saffron thread.

  1. Sargol: means "Top of the Flower" in Farsi. Sargol is a subtype of Persian saffron derived from the very tip of the saffron thread. Hence, its name is "peak of the flower". This saffron strain also has a specific, strong aroma. In general, Sargol saffron is considered high quality due to the absence of yellow or orange fibers. Sargol is easily recognized by its rich, deep red color and short saffron threads.

On the downside, Sargol saffron often contains debris and broken fibers.

  1. Super Negin: The rarest and most expensive pruned saffron of all saffron varieties. Super Negin saffron is not only known for its strongest uses but also for its high aesthetic value. Super Negin saffron threads are longer and contain no yellow or orange threads. The flower strands are cut symmetrically and without debris. When comparing all types of Saffron, Super Negin is the most sought after for those who want the best.

Currently, the Saffron Palace store system is trading the best Supper Negin line, ensuring trust for consumers.

Some Supper Negin products are being sold at the official Saffron Palace store system.

  • Saffron Palace Negin 1 gram: 350,000₫
  • Saffron Palace Negin 3 grams: 1,050,000 VND

  • Saffron Palace Negin 20 grams: 6,000,000 VND
  • Saffron Palace Negin 50 grams: 15,000,000 VND
  1. Negin: When compared to Sargol and Super Negin, Negin is longer and contains some yellow and orange parts of the thread. In a word, the fragrance, quality and purity are still excellent. But you have to pay for some parts of yellow and orange yarn, lower quality than the above 2 lines.
  1. Pushal saffron: the cheapest and most commonly sold pruned saffron in stores. Because Saffron is so expensive, many distributors take advantage of consumers by selling them orange and yellow parts to increase their profit margin. Since these yellow parts do not have much value, in reality, consumers will have to pay a lot of money but receive a poor quality product, which does not have much effect on their health.

Overall, Persian Saffron will almost always be of high quality as long as it is purchased through a reputable and trustworthy source. Genuine products imported from Persia will continue to hold a reputation for high quality Saffron due to its consistent features, such as: Climate, topography, soil and organic harvesting methods.

Choosing any of these Persian saffron is a wise choice for consumers, but for those looking for the best - Super Negin this is the rarest and most expensive form of Saffron. Currently, Saffron Palace shop only sells this product line in order to bring the best product to consumers.

It is also the highest quality saffron on the market. The price is quite high compared to the common ground, so consumers should consider when encountering Saffron Palace Negin products with "cheap" or "super bargain" prices advertised by businesses.
