What is Sargol?

The difference between Negin and Sargol saffron
Sargol and Negin saffron are among the high quality and excellent categories of saffron plant. Of course, a very important issue that every person should be familiar with when buying original saffron, is the quality of the saffron plant. In general, Negin saffron is much higher than Sargol saffron in terms of quality. Of course, we should not forget that Sargol saffron is a saffron that is more popular among the people and more of this product is bought by Iranians.
The main difference between these two types of saffron can be explained by the appearance of saffron strings. Negin saffron threads are healthy and have minimal fracture and have the highest coloring power, but in Sargol or All Red saffron, most of the saffron threads are broken.
Another issue that makes the difference between these two types of saffron is whether it is fake or real. In All Red saffron, due to fractures, this product is more fake than Negin saffron.
