Analyze and Grades

Saffron grading is done via laboratory measurement of crocin (color), picrocrocin (taste), and safranal (fragrance) content. Grading standards are set by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization), a federation of national standards bodies. ISO 3632 deals exclusively with saffron and establishes four empirical color intensity grades: IV (poorest), III, II, and I (finest quality saffron).

Graders measure absorbency of 440-nm light by dry saffron samples. Higher absorbencies imply greater crocin concentration, and thus greater color intensity. These data are measured through spectrophotometer reports at certified testing laboratories worldwide. These color grades proceed from grades with absorbances as low as 80 up to 190 or greater.
