The safron price per gram and price per kilo depends upon the cut of saffron. The most prized and expensive is the sargol all red filament tips. Below the sargol is the lower grade orange reddish pushal saffron and below this is the konge saffron which is yellow, weak and not favored for cooking or use asa dye. Saffron prices depend upon the country of origin of the saffron, Iran being the finest quality saffron in the World and far better than Moroccan, Spanish saffron and Kashmiri.

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.
