Moonflowers offers the best saffron type, 'super-negin'.
Negin means diamond in Farsi, this is why the most premium grade of saffron is called the super-negin. The main rule is that the best saffron quality is the one high in crocin (color), picrocrocin (taste), and saffranal (aroma). The super-negin variant has the highest concentration of these three elements.
It’s a long stemmed, deep red stigma and does not contain orange or yellow threads and does not have crumbs.
Recognize premium-grade saffron with your senses.
When you steep the saffron threads in water, it should gradually turn into a deep golden, orange hue.
