When you think luxury food, caviar is definitely one of the first things that come to mind. Along with gold leaves and diamond-encrusted meals, caviar is among the finer things in the world of gastronomy. Some places serve other fish’s eggs as alternative caviar, more commonly known as ikura.
Caviar is the salted roe or egg of sturgeons. There are more than 27 species of sturgeons, and the 3 species that produce the best caviar are the Beluga, Osetra, and Sevruga. They are pretty rare to encounter in the wild, since sturgeons only lay eggs every 20 years. Now, the caviar industry relies on farming. Surprisingly, despite the large supply from farm-raised sturgeons, the demand for caviar is still higher than the supply.
Caviar is full of vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, B44, C, and D, as well as protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium. These nutrients help with the nervous, circulatory and immune systems. The quality of caviar is determined based on its color, flavor, texture and maturity. Good caviar pops in your mouth with 15 different flavors. Savor the taste with champagne or vodka, as they compliment the flavor of caviar.
