Saffron is one of the oldest herbs ever used for medicinal purposes in the history of mankind, and is still used in some regions of the world, such as India. It is believed to cure many illnesses and also had the capability of making strong dye. It is believed that Europeans were among the first to use saffron as a spice when cooking. Saffron is also used in religious ceremonies.

Be careful when buying saffron. Sometimes it is adulterated with other spices. Real saffron is expensive and has a dark orange or brownish red color. The saffron staining possibilities stem from the red part of the safflower filaments, and not from the yellow parts, which remain uncircumcised in saffron of lower quality. Choose whole saffron threads over saffron powder. The threads have better taste, and the curative qualities are higher.

Saffron is known as the most expensive spice in the world. Throughout history, dishonest dealers would adulterate their saffron by adding such materials for additional weight or by dyeing the lower quality saffron strands red, which is a sign of the quality of saffron. Pure saffron contains only stigma of the Crocus flower with nothing else added.


For example, every red saffron that is 10 years old is not of good quality. The next criterion is fragrance. Old saffron loses its pungent flavor and sometimes has no flavor at all. So the quality saffron is saffron, which is completely red and has a pleasant aroma. Please note that this does not mean that any pure saffron with some yellow in it is not saffron. It’s just not as strong as red saffron. In fact, some people prefer saffron with yellow in it, and they are not saffron unless the stigma does not have any yellow.

The classification of saffron is carried out by color, the content of floral waste and foreign substances. There are three types of saffron: Mongra contains most of the dry stigmas. Lacha is part of the stigma with style. Gucchi contains the whole-style stigma associated in bundles.

The most important rule when buying saffron is to find a source that you can trust. Because it is an expensive spice; Retailers can trick you into buying low-quality saffron that you do not required. Sometimes you can get saffron at a lower price. All you need is to properly research what good saffron is and how to buy it.
