Advice for assessing your saffron spice quality by visual inspection

Saffron is sold in many different grades from several different countries of origin and at a variety of saffron prices. When buying saffron sargol you must beware of fraudulent sellers passing off lower grade saffron that has been dyed red or even the entire filament has been dyed red, so here are a few key points to examine to evaluate that you have purchased saffron of proper grade quality that you paid for.

1. The saffron threads should be only a few cm in length. Long red threads indicates that the entire  saffron filament (stigma of the crocus sativus flower)  has been dyed so instead of being red at the tip, orange in the middle and yellow at the base it will of course be all painted red, this is a common way to look out for your safety shopping for saffron.

2. Uniformity of the red colour tint throughout the whole batch again indicates that the threads could have been altered by chemical dyeing agents.

3. The presence of flecks of yellow/orange running through the sargol saffron threads is another indication that the saffron has been artificially coloured and the streaking pattern happens due to one saffron filament being covered over by a separate filament and therefore blocking the application of the dye to this area and hence leaving a streaked pattern.
