Quality  Saffron Threads

  • Red Gold’s saffron threads are some of the highest quality in the world.
  • Our saffron threads are classified Superior Persian Super Negin. It is consistently tested in ISO laboratories and is certified for its high levels of crocin (color), picrocrocin (flavor), and safranal (odor). Read the full report here.
  • In contrast, most saffron sold in Sweden is Sargol saffron; a nice saffron, but with a more yellowed color, weaker odor, and lower quality than Super Negin.
  • For reference, most Grade 1 Persian saffron sold in Europe have crocin-levels ranging between 220-250; Spanish saffron is classified Grade 1 if it has Crocin-levels above 190.
  • All of Red Gold’s Superior Negin Persian saffron crocin grades exceed 270.
  • A comprehensive research by SVT in 2014 found the following crocin-levels for the leading brands in Sweden:

Origin and Harvest:

  • We buy the Saffron Threads directly from Persian farmers who plant, grow, and harvest everything themselves.
  • The farmers dry the saffron to preserve the color, odor and properties unique to Persian premium saffron.
  • The Persian saffron threads of Red Gold are known for their vivid red color and trumpet-shaped threads, which indicates pureness and high quality.

Red Gold’s Drying Method:

At Red Gold, we dry our saffron to preserve the highest quality. First, the farmers remove the stigmas of fresh saffron. Then, they trim the saffron before heating it with an ironing machine to preserve the crocin-level to the fullest and prevent color darkening. The ironing method is also the best way to preserve the saffron odor. This procedure has become famous among Persian saffron specialists, as it preserves the saffron quality and enable it for medical and cosmetic uses as well.

Cooking Uses:

Saffron Threads is the staple in a wide array of dishes all over the world. In Sweden, saffron is a cornerstone in fish soups, Gotlands-pancake and, of course, lussebullar. However, you can also use the Red Gold in many deserts, including saffron pudding, saffron ice-cream, and Persian Shole Zard. Check out our recipe page for some of our favorites!

    It is the first time when I bought saffron. I’m glad I’ve decided to go with this brand. It does look like a good quality product
    Clean. Rich taste.
    I cooked some saffron rice by following an Indian recipe and it turned out beautiful.
    You need a very small amount when cooking. It is amazing how much taste and color come from a very little pinch.
    Going to try a saffron milk next. 😊
