5 best ways to identify real saffron:-

1. Find out with hot water:- Take a glass of water and heat it to 50 to 70 degrees, after this put it in a glass vessel and then put three to four saffron petals in it, if there is any saffron in the water.  If it leaves its color immediately then understand that saffron is fake, if saffron leaves its color after some time then it is real.

2. Find out by placing it on the palm of the hand - Yes, put two drops of water on your palm and then place a saffron petal on it, then with the help of the thumb, start rubbing it slowly, if the color of saffron starts to turn more yellow  And if it does not break quickly in the middle then it is real.

3. Find out from the smell - If you want to identify the real saffron, then you can also find out from the smell of saffron, the smell of real saffron is like honey, if saffron is fake then its aroma is bitter and strange.

4. Baking Soda Experiment - First take water in a bowl and put some baking soda in it then stir it well and after that add 2 petals of saffron if saffron leaves its red color then saffron is absolutely fake if saffron is the same  But if it leaves its yellow color then it is your real saffron.

5. You can also identify saffron by its taste. Yes, keep your saffron petal on your tongue and then start chewing lightly, if it tastes completely sweet then your saffron is fake and if it tastes sweet but  If it sounds a little bitter, it is absolutely real.
