Abstract:

In this research, saffron samples collected from 11 regions of Khorasan-Iran and chemical characteristics of them such as color, flavor and aroma were studied. Chemical characteristics of saffron (Crocus sativus L.) were determined by spectrophotometric device Using 255, 325 and 440 nm wavelength for three components, picrocrocin, safranal and croicn which are responsible for flavor, aroma and color parameters respectively. Spectrophotometric analysis showed that maximum absorption were 1/928 and 2/760 for pricrocrocin and crocin respectively for samples which are collected in TorbateHeydariyeh county and maximum absorption for safranal was 1/008 for samples which are collected in sheshtamad.
