Description:

Saffron Sargol

 This filament type, usually obtained from “bunched saffron” and “Poushal Saffron” which has no style & pollen and just consists of red parts of stigma with a high power of coloring and aroma.

Sargol saffron Stigmas range from 3/8" to 1/2" in length. In many other countries it is referred to as coupe saffron, cut or all red stigma.

This is the most important part of the saffron process. By cutting the saffron stigmas apart prior to drying them, the moisture will evaporate out and no moisture remains inside the saffron stigma. When you leave the stigmas attached to each other, moisture is trapped inside the stigma of saffron. This shortens the shelf life and quality of the goods ( saffron ) . The drying process activates the chemical compounds, which release aroma, color and flavor. You can tell high moisture content in saffron by the soft or spongy texture to the touch. Moist saffron will develop a musty smell instead of saffron's distinct clean aroma. Our Sargol saffron's moisture is as low as 2% , and it could rise up to 6% , but u should be careful at range of 2% more than 6% to prevent damaging, and its aroma is pleasantly memorable and distinct. Sargol stigmas dried this way are brittle to the touch. You can crush them into powder between your fingers or with just a little pressure between two metal spoons.
