Different types of Saffron
Negin Saffron has the highest colouring power (higher than 250 usp).
All-Red (Sargol in Persian)
This kind of saffron is similar to coupe. It is all red and is really pure and without style. This kind of saffron has very high colouring power (240 usp or higher)
Pushal Saffron contains filaments which have 2 or 3 mm style. Its colouring power is about 220 usp
Bunch (Dastehi in Persian)
It is also called Red& White in which the red part is about 70%–75% and the style is about 25% and 30%.
It is the yellow or white parts of saffron threads which are separated from red stigma. In fact, this part of saffron thread can not be defined as pure saffron. It does not contain the dye, Crocin that gives food a rich golden colour.
How to Recognise Quality Saffron at Wholesale
Quality saffron consists of long, bright red stigmas. In the beginning of the season, saffron has the desired colouring strength, taste and bitterness. Over time, the colour and the taste of Saffron decrease and its fragrance and aroma increase. Moreover, the colour of saffron becomes darker and the filaments become dry and fragile.
The easiest method to recognise pure saffron is by adding some water. The pure Saffron will make the water yellow while the fake one will make it orange or red. We suggest hot water for this test.
Our products live up to all these tests since we offer saffron for wholesale in Australia as one of the most reliable vendors.
