Recognizing pure saffron
What does it mean by adulterationIs
Is it just Mixing corn hair with saffron to increase weight?
Coloring fiber threads with red color and adding saffron oil or perfume to give fragrance of saffron?
Or leaving that yellow strand below red strand to increase the weight of saffron?
The answer to the above question is no it means much more than that it can be in the form of chemicals or fertilizer, not bio in nature even machines can add to adulteration.
There are many categories in market lets define all one by one.
Corn hair in Name of saffron
Dishonest dealers would adulterate their saffron by adding similar materials for added weight or by dyeing the lower quality saffron strands red, which is the sign of good quality saffron.
looking for cheap saffron is like looking for gold at a cheap price, low-cost cheap metal which is gold plated which is not gold but looks like gold,so-called saffron which is sold in the market is made up of dyed stamen with no saffron threads These stamens are generally curly and moist with the nice aroma as they are dyed red and sprayed with saffron oil. To give fragrance of saffron .So if you are searching for cheap saffron make sure you are purchasing saffron and not stamen or thread which is read colored or corn hair's
Not all saffron is adulterated there are many brands which are taking efforts to sell customer pure saffron.Pure saffron contains only the stigma of the Crocus flower with nothing else added. Pure saffron strands composed of red and yellow portions of the stigma are less potent than the pure saffron composed entirely of the red portions of the stigma. On the other hand saffron, strands composed of red and yellow portions of the stigma shows that it is not dyed since it is not cost efficient to dye saffron strands partially red. So saffron strands composed of red and yellow portions of the stigma are pure in nature but few brand makes that extra effort in cutting yellow potion and selling only red stigma of the flower.
