We Provide 3 different types of Saffron
According to ISO (International Organization for Standardization) saffron is divided to 3 general groups:
1. Saffron in cut filament:
dried stigmas of the Crocus Sativus L. flower (with styles removed completely detached from each other)*. The purest type of saffron is known as Negin and Sargol in Iran, however in Spain it is known as Coupe.
2. Saffron in filament:
dried stigmas with a part of the style of the Crocus Sativus L. flower. This type of saffron is known Pushal in Iran and Mancha in Spain. Using this same type of saffron, but sold in another manner, is Bunched saffron. Just like the name suggests, the saffron filaments are bunched together and tied with tread. This type is called Dasteh in Iran.
3. Saffron in powder form:
particles obtained by crushing the filaments of the Crocus Sativus L. flower using sophisticated machines. The machinery crushes the stigmas in an enclosed and in frigid temperatures, as to not lose quality or quantity.
