In straw saffron, the saffron cream (white part) is separated from under the flower, so that the stigmas will have 2-3 mm of cream. At the end of the stigmas of the three branches of saffron, there is some yellow or white, which gives it a straw-like shape. This saffron model is graded from 1 to 3 based on the coarseness and sagging of the stigma and the amount of cream attached to it. Straw saffron that has thick and smooth stigmas, without wrinkles and has less cream (root) is called straw, and straw saffron, which has a normal stalk and is eaten with more cream, is called ordinary straw.

Saffron in large-volume should be stored in special plastic packaging, but if it’s to be stored in bulk for a long time (seven to eight months), it is better to store in special metal containers. The important point in the basic maintenance of saffron is to keep it away from light and moisture, otherwise its shelf life will be reduced.
