Saffron’s classification and grading depends on picocrocine (flavor), safranal (aroma) and crocine (color). When these factors have a high number, that means that the saffron has a better quality.
What is Saffron Classification? Pure saffron is classified as the following:
Grade 1 or A+ or All Red: All red saffron that contains stigmas only. This is our 100% Premium Saffron.
Grade 2 or A or Thread: Contains the red stigmas and connected to the end part of the style that is yellow/ white in color.
Grade 3 or B or Tied bunch: Contains the red stigmas connected to the entire style.
Standards for Saffron Classification
However, a number of ISO standards can help fight against this fraud and help recognize quality saffron producers. Saffron is considered to be pure when it complies with the requirements of the standard ISO 3632 and when no external matter has been added to the natural product.
ISO, a federation of national standards bodies, sets the saffron classification standards. ISO 3632 exclusively deals with saffron and sets up 4 grades of color intensity such as IV (lowest), III, II and I (purest and finest saffron quality).
Saffron Classification gauges the level of 440-nm light absorbency by using samples of dray saffron. High absorbencies mean that there is a high concentration of crocin and high intensity of color. These variables are gauged through spectro-photometer details at testing laboratories around the world.
