Among the most select variety of foods, Caviar is king. A delicacy consumed for many centuries by the Persians, who were the first to consume sturgeon roe regularly. They had the belief that caviar increased strength and physical endurance. For their part, the Romans attributed medicinal and healing properties to caviar.
In the 17th century, the sturgeon roe’s consumption was recognized as something luxurious and opulent, and today, Beluga Caviar appears. This caviar has a delicatessen status: one of the most famous and exclusive caviar. This variety comes from the beluga sturgeon or Huso Huso, which lives in the Caspian Sea, mainly in Iran’s lightly polluted waters.
Why is Beluga Caviar the best option to try?
The first reason is that it is one of the most sought-after types of caviar.
It is named after the type of sturgeon it comes from, the Huso Huso or Beluga sturgeon. This fish stands out, above all, for its size. And for the size of the eggs, which are the largest that can obtain. Each dial has a smooth, gray texture. It also has a particular flavor that many describe as sublime, complex, and persistent at the end.
Within this type, there is one that is considered the best caviar in the world. It has a very high price in the market, given how rare it is to find it. The albino beluga sturgeon also produces a type of caviar called Almas, a Russian word for diamond. This caviar is light gray, almost white.
So let’s go back to the reasons why you should try Beluga Caviar. The greed to taste this caviar is mainly due to its size and longevity since it can reach 5 meters in length, weigh more than 1,000 kilograms and live up to 150 years. It takes about 18 years to reach sexual maturity in females, and after that, it produces roe every two to four years. From it, you get one of the most expensive caviar and are valued by all.
These glorious gleaming eggs, ranging in color from light gray to black, are considered a luxury product. Caviar connoisseurs consider eating Beluga Caviar to be one of life’s greatest pleasures, and they rave about it’s incredibly smooth texture and enriching taste.
