Sargol saffron is a sought-after type of saffron, recognized for its rich red filaments and elevated levels of crocin. The production method of Sargol saffron involves meticulously extracting the red stigma of the saffron flower while eliminating the yellow stamen and other extraneous components. After drying and packing the stigma, it is commonly utilized for medicinal and culinary purposes.
Similar to Super Negin and Negin saffron, Sargol saffron contains a significant amount of crocin, a compound responsible for its distinct rich red hue and various health-promoting properties. When buying Sargol saffron, it’s crucial to verify that you’re obtaining authentic and high-grade saffron since several counterfeits and tainted items abound in the market. To ensure that the saffron is of high quality and pure, it is advisable to purchase it from reliable vendors who are able to furnish details about its source, quality, and the methods used to evaluate it.
Sargol literally translates as “top of the flower”. Our Persian Sargol saffron is made up of the red stigmas which have been professionally cut and separated from the style prior to drying. For many saffron enthusiasts, Sargol Cut saffron is preferred over the various other grades of saffron due to high levels of crocin, the property responsible for the distinct aroma of saffron and rich, well-balanced coloring. If the aroma is a core concern, we highly recommend this particular cut of Persian saffron for your favorite dishes, desserts, or rock candy treats.
