Saffron is one of the highly prized spices known since antiquity for its color, flavor and medicinal properties and also can be used as a fabric dye. It is the dried "stigma" or threads of the flower of the Crocus sativus plant. It is a bulbous perennial plant that belongs to the family of Iridaceae, in the genus, Crocus, and known botanically as Crocus sativus. The Crocus sativus plant grows to about 15-20cm in height and bears lavender colored flowers during each season which lasts from October until November. Each flower features perianth consisting of a stalk, known as connecting to three or threads to the rest of the plant. These red-yellow colored stigmas along with the "style" constitutes "saffron" which is used as condiment spice. Saffron has been the worldâ??s most expensive spice by weight for decades. It takes 150,000 flowers to make 1 kilogram of saffron. Good saffron crop production demands cool dry climate with well-drained rich fertile soil and irrigation facilities or sufficient amount of rain fall. The flowers are generally harvested during the early-morning hours and soon their stigma separated, allowed to dry, and packed for marketing. Saffron has a distinct flavor that comes from chemical compounds in it such as picrocrocin, and safranal. It also contains a natural carotenoid chemical compound, crocin, which gives saffron its golden-yellow hue. These traits along with its medicinal properties make it a valuable ingredient in many cuisines worldwide.
Saffron is not all of the same quality. Strength is related to several factors such as the amount of style picked along with the stigma. Age of saffron is also a factor. Saffron from iran is classified into various grades according to the relative amounts of red stigma and yellow styles it contains. Grades of Iranian saffron are as follows: Super negin, negin, sargol, pushali, bunched, dasteh.
Negin (premium sargol) : All red , large and high porosity, strongest grade The highest quality of the saffron-threads is referred to as negin. This is the most valuable kind as it has the highest quality. It has the volume and the thread- length of pushal and at the same time the color intensity of sargol. this is not accessible through any artificial color changes and therefore absolutely pure. This quality according to iso-norm 3632-2 has Colouring, crocin, of about 240 Flavour, safranal, of about 50 Bitterness, picrocrocin, of about 95.
Sargol : Red stigma tips only without styles To maintain the quality of the sargol saffron-threads all 3 stamens in the blossom are removed. all white and orange parts are removed so that only single red tips of the stamen remain. This quality according to iso standard 3632-2 has: Coloring, crocin, of about 240 Flavour, safranal, of about 50 Bitterness, picrocrocin, of about 95.
Pushal: Red stigma plus some yellow styles, lower strength: By the pushal saffron-threads the stamens that grow in the crocus blossom are removed completely. The white parts are removed and left over and the stamen threads that have few orange colored , but the complete red colored parts are maintained. All 3 stamens remain together to maintain plenty volume. This quality according to iso standard 3632-2 has: Coloring, crocin, of about 225 Flavour, safranal, of about 50 Bitterness, picrocrocin, of about 85.
