It is called mancha saffron inSpain. 101 kg of saffron flowers produces 1kg
of sargol saffron.

Negin saffron is a special type of pooshal saffron, in which the 3 branches of red and thick chalk and without style part (yellow) are separated from existing strands and bulky saffron is produced. Negin saffron is the richest
and most expensive saffron type and has the highest coloring power (between 230 and 270 units). The production and sale of Pallal Negin saffron is usually decreasing due to the times consuming process and the more processing required for processing. The Negin saffron is all red and has a large pen and most of its branches are healthy and have a minimum fracture.

Scientific research shows that valuable materials of saffron are only in its red color. This material (especially crocin as a saffron color factor) is transmitted from the stigma to the Style due to the movement of the plant tissue, due to the presence of more moisture in the Style, in appearance more perfume comes from the Style. White saffron is not included in the category of saffron, but due to its beautiful color and appearance, it is not possible to cheat.
