Negin Cut Gourmet Saffron Threads From Persia

Here at SLOFOODGROUP, we know how difficult the decision of buying saffron can be. After all, Saffron is the world's most expensive and sought-after spice. Taste, color, and authenticity need to be taken into serious consideration before making a purchase decision.

There are various varieties of this exotic spice—all containing different qualities and flavor profiles. This particular variety of Gourmet Persian Saffron is high-quality Negin Cut, Grade 1 Saffron.  Negin cut saffron filament is highly prized by gourmet chefs for its thickness and dark fully red filaments, whereas other varieties might contain yellow or orange coloring.

Given the many varieties of saffron (Greek, Spanish, Austrian), Persian Saffron continues to be the most valued for its coloring (Corcin) and flavor (Safranal) properties across the globe.

Slo team saffron is very good. The Sargol cut may not as good as Negin cut, although it is $1.00 higher/g. Maybe they are from different farm.

Saffron from Slofoodgroup exceeded expectations

Not only was the safron itself beautiful and of the highest quality, it was packaged nicely and arrived very promptly. I had also been impressed with the customer support I received when I contacted the company about how I should calculate how much saffron I should buy since my recipe was vague. I was so pleased with the response -- and price of the product -- that I bought more than needed. I will be returning to this site for more products in the future.

Intro to Persian Saffron

Though I’ve been using saffron for over 40 years this is my introduction to the Persian variety. Till now I’ve used a venerable Spanish product with great satisfaction, but still wanted to explore. This product arrived well packed and in perfect condition exhibiting very long threads and an intense and deep crimson color - better than I’ve ever seen. When it hit water it released a deep and concentrated saffron yellow color - again better than I’ve ever seen. However, the aroma was more attenuated than the Spanish variety which I’ve been cooking with. I used this in preparing Indian basmati rice and the taste was mellow and refined, but also somewhat attenuated from what I’ve come to expect. All in all this is a fine saffron and do not hesitate to try it. The service by SLOFoodGroup is outstanding.
