Buy Saffron From A Trusted Saffron Source

You need to be very cautious in purchasing saffron in order for you to get the pure saffron. In order for you to have an informed buying decision, consider the latest figures on global saffron production: Italian Saffron – 100 kilos or less, Spanish Saffron – 1mt. or less, Kashmir Saffron – 2/3 mt., Moroccan Saffron 2/3 mt., Greek Saffron 5.7 mt., and Persian Saffron + Afghan Saffron 150/170 mt.

Saffron Market

The saffron market lies in the hands of packers, not farmers.

As a general rule of thumb, packers purchase all the saffron they are offered and then have to sell it immediately so that they can make claims that it is from the latest crop year. So, saffron enters the market as a combination of various qualities from various countries. The ultimate rule—lowest price.

The packer just has little concern when it comes to quality. You will notice this when you open a sample of mediocre saffron and observe the mixture of white, yellow and red material left attached to the saffron flower’s stigma or just yellow material included. You will also notice a spongy texture and musty smell because of the excess moisture. In our saffron, you will only find saffron stigma.

The saffron’s grade is determined by examining the saffron’s absorbance value by dissolving it in water, measured at λ=440 nm. In order to attain the grade 1 stamp, the saffron’s value must be 190 and above. The saffron we offer to you for sale measures in a value of 225 to 268, testimonial to a first grade strong crop. It is also hand-picked just before the sun rises and the stigmas are removed by hand and dried in sterile laboratory conditions, enabling for the highest levels of both safranal and crocine.

When you order All-Red Persian Saffron, we make sure that only the purest  saffron stigma is sold to you. First, everything in the 1 oz, ½ oz, 5, 10, 3 and 1 gram containers that we sell is 100% all-red saffron. There are no white or yellow styles mixed with the stigma of the saffron crocus plant. The red stigmas are the sole parts of the saffron crocus, which produce the saffron. So, how does the grading of saffron work? When many styles have been attached to the stigma, it signifies low quality.

At our fair low prices, you might be wondering on how we can claim to be selling only the purest and finest saffron in the United States. The answer is just so simple.
