    If you put a thread of real saffron in your mouth and it feels sweet, then it’s fake!


    Saffron threads when placed in cold water for a few minutes will color the water and come out still looking like the original saffron thread. If the color washes out and the thread when taken out has faded or completely lost its color, then it’s fake.

    also real saffron has distinct sweet smell, fakers can fake the appearance by using dyes but not that distinct sweet smell.

    kashmiri saffron is very good.
