Buy Best Saffron Types at Esfedan

When buying saffron, you may have noticed that there are many different saffron types. While there is only one saffron crocus flower, you may wonder why there are different saffron types in the market. The answer is simple; these different saffron types represent different quality levels of the same saffron flower and thread. The process of picking flowers and separating the filaments and also the length of threads, among other factors, affect the quality of saffron and its type. Here, at Esfedan, we provide the best quality types of saffron. You can see the most commonly used classification of saffron types known worldwide below:

Super Negin Saffron

Saffron types

The best quality type of saffron in the world, Super Negin Saffron is the premium all red saffron. While not much different from Negin Saffron, Super Negin saffron has a bit larger threads. Moreover, compared to the other grade A saffron types, Super Negin Saffron has more coloring power; but this extra coloring power is not so much that all consumers can notice it.

Negin Saffron

Saffron types

Negin Saffron is also one of the best quality types of saffron that is produced from grade 1 saffron and contains only the red parts of the stigma. In Negin and Super Negin saffron, three threads of the same flower come connected in one piece. So, when you are going to buy saffron, note that with the same weight, Negin and Super Negin Saffron types take more space in the package.

Sargol Saffron

Saffron types

Another grade one saffron, Sargol Saffron only contains the red parts of the stigma but the treads are shorter than Negin and Super Negin Saffron. The three stigmas of a flower are also not connected to the style in Sargol. Sargol saffron is called All-Red Saffron as it only has the red parts of saffron stigma. This type of saffron is also called Coupe in the Spanish market.

Pushal Saffron

Saffron types

Like Sargol, Pushal Saffron also has the red parts of saffron stigma. The difference is that Pushal threads contain a bit of the yellow style as well. So, the coloring power is lower than Super Negin, Negin, and Sargol saffron. Note that while Pushal saffron has yellow styles, these yellow styles should not be larger than the red stigmas; otherwise, the saffron is called Bunch.

Coarse Saffron Powder

Saffron types

Another saffron type that is produced from Grade A Sargol Saffron threads is Coarse Saffron Powder. So, it has the same rich color and aroma as Sargol Saffron. However, if easy and immediate use is important for you, buy Esfedan Coarse Saffron Powder. Coarse Saffron Powder is especially suitable for those who are still interested to see the saffron filaments in their food and beverage.

Fine Saffron Powder

Saffron types

Here at Esfedan, we produce Fine Saffron Powder from Grade A Sargol Saffron. So, like other Esfedan’s saffron types, the fine saffron powder is also rich in color and aroma. When you grind a saffron thread well enough, the red stigma turns into an orange powder that dissolves easily in your dish. So, in buying fine saffron powder, the orange color of the powder is natural.
