There is only one type of saffron, the spice taken from the flower of Crocus sativus.  The best quality saffron is marked by its deep red color and full  flavor, obtained by picking only the dark red tips of the hair-like  stigma of the flower.  Lower qualities may use more of the flower’s stigma and style, and may be sold as powder (which can hide adulteration.)  Cooks can mobilize the aromas and tastes of saffron by steeping the spice fibers or powder in liquid, often warm or hot, for at least a few minutes.  Besides use in stews, broths, sauces or rices, saffron is used to flavor tea/tisanes/tinctures for drinking

Saffron will differ according to the climate and weather and land conformation of its growing location, and the picking and processing techniques.  It is cultivated mainly in regions with hot, dry Summers and semi-arid land, on land that slopes toward the sun.  The Mediterranean region, especially Spain and Greece, and South Asia, especially Iran and Kashmir, are notable producers, although saffron is also produced in Southeast Asia, Oceania and the Americas.  Some of the most reputed sources/products are:

  • zafferano dell’Aquila from Italy’s Abruzzo region’s Navelli Valley
  • saffron from San Gavino Monreale, Sardinia, Italy
  • Kashmiri (India) Mongra or Lacha saffron, with maroon-purple color
  • Iranian sargol grade saffron
  • Spanish coupé grade saffron
  • artisanal/boutique crops selectively picked for highest quality from England, France, New Zealand, Switzerland and the USA.

Saffron parts and types

Although Persian Sargol is considered as the premium saffron, there is another variation of Sargol . If three stigma threads are attached together and form a cluster, this type of is called Negin. Since production of Negin is an extremely delicate and precise manual skill, it is the most expensive type of saffron and very limited to offer. The ISO reading of Negin is usually more than 270.


This grade consists of ONLY dark red stigma tips and has the highest quality compared to the other types. Sargol is the pure saffron with no broken stand and has the ISO reading of 260-270. Due to accumulation of saffron`s active components in stimas, Persian Sargol has a very strong arom and rich coloring capacity.


Pushal is the stigma part of the plant attached to a 1-3 mm style end. According to ISO 3632 system, this type falls into grade II category that has a color reading of up to 250. Although Pushal does not have Sargol`s pure texture and premium quality, but some consumers prefer to purchase Iranian Pushal to be assured of validity and authenticity.


  • 4. Khooshe (Bunch)

This grade is relatively low strength grade (ISO reading is 70 to 75) and consists of red stigmata plus large amount of yellow style, presented in a tiny bundle.


  • 5. KONJ (KONGE)

This grade consists of only yellow-white styles and has a very little aroma and coloring potential.
