3 Easy ways to identify pure saffron


If you were to put a saffron thread/strand into

your mouth and if it tastes sweet…. IT’s FAKE


Put the saffron strands into water and wait for the colour to change

If it changes gradually and more strongly over time then its pure,

Otherwise; too fast and its likely to have dye in it or be low quality.


Pure saffron aroma is very interesting.

If u know what Honey smells like,

and you also know what hay smells like…

you would know what Real Saffron Aroma is.

It is literally a blend of Hay and Honey smells.
