How to test saffron: fake vs real saffron

True saffron color comes from the INSIDE of the pistil which is released slowly and remains "suspended".

False saffron begins to drop its color immediately because dyes have been added to the outside.

Storage conditions for saffron:

The saffron should be stored in a proper airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from moisture and sunlight. Avoid placing saffron near other spices.

Factors that cause quality loss in saffron

How you store saffron has a decisive impact on its durability, quality and properties.

Temperature, humidity, direct light and storage time affect the quality and properties of saffron, including color (crocin), taste (pircocrocin) and aroma (saffron). Saffron is exposed to such factors, loses its aroma and properties over time.

The saffron in the appropriate packaging stored under the right conditions retains its aroma for three to five years, but the color will remain the same even after that. The saffron packaging must be resistant to moisture, odor, gases, light, microorganisms, etc. Materials that are often used for saffron packaging are metal can, cellophane, acetate cellulose, polyethylene (PE), polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride.

What foods are considered a superfood?

Supermat are nutritious foods that are considered beneficial to health and well-being.

Saffron stands out not only because of its rich color and aroma, but because of its medicinal properties that have been practiced for centuries.

Saffron is used all over the world not only for its unique taste when cooking, but also as a medicine because it contains high vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin and manganese, copper and iron are all found in saffron and help maintain a strong immune system and cardiovascular system.


For each import, we require a lab report for the particular shipment which is sent to the customer upon request. If you ask most importers, they do not know what a photospectometry report is. To protect yourself and ensure that your saffron is clean, safe and of excellent quality, you must have a photospectometry report, like the one you see here. We have a report for each import that covers color, aroma, taste and purity.
