Saffron with the generic name of Crocus Sativus [ saffron commonly known as Crocus Sativus ] has many uses. For example, it is used as a dye to color food, essence and medicine.
Saffron is a small plant as high as 10-30 centimeters and lives for several years whose stigma and three strains are very popular.
From ancient times, the name and brand of Iranian saffron has always been famous. Due to their special climates, the northeastern and eastern regions of Iran are the main regions of growing of saffron.
There are different types of saffron, such as Super Negin and Special Sargol. Negin saffron has high coloring power, a pleasant aroma and has a very wonderful appearance. In Sargol saffron, the white parts are separated and red saffron is obtained, which is completely red. The aroma of saffron is called Saffronal is caused by the presence of an essential oil, which is soluble in water and alcohol. Saffron is rich in Carotenoid that is the origin of its color and includes ingredients that strengthen the stomach.
Saffron is effective as anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, hypnotic, pain relief, antioxidant, cancer prevention and lowering blood sugar, but excessive consumption of saffron can cause jaundice and miscarriage.
Negin saffron has no white parts. It should have 3 stigma threads which are separate and should not be broken.
Indeed, in this type of saffron the three stigmas which look red are removed and are completely separated from the root and orange parts.
Actually the unbroken stigmas with appealing appearance are called Negin saffron and is very popular around the world and of course it is the most expensive type of saffron.
Sargol is referred to the end of saffron string which is pure and red.
Depending on its quality, Sargol saffron may release different coloring grade and the best coloring grade is 270. In preparing Sargol saffron, the white parts of saffron strings and the root of saffron are cut, as much as possible. Sargol saffron has good quality and high coloring power and due to its reasonable price, is ideal for cooking and home use. Sargol saffron has different grades, but due to the potential existence of white parts, it is less expensive than Negin saffron.
