Caviar is a one- of -a- kind food you should try at least once in your life. It’s worldwide known as a luxurious delicacy and there are plenty of myths about it. However, having Caviar does not mean you’ll have to empty all your pockets to afford it.It can indeed be expensive, but when exploring the options you’ll know there’s one for you. That’s why we’ve made a selection of the best Caviar to buy in House of Caviar and help you make your pick.
First, let’s remember a few of Caviar’s basics. Caviar is eggs or roe collected from the sturgeon family traditionally from the Caspian and Black Seas. Although all- female fish lay eggs, only sturgeon eggs are considered Caviar. Some other fish eggs like salmon, trout, and flying fish are also considered “roe”. These ones have become a very popular and affordable alternative to getting Caviar.
If you haven’t ever tried Caviar and you’re in the search for the perfect one to start, you may be wondering why is it so special? There are many reasons to explain why Caviar is so worth it, but these are three you should know about:
- Caviar is luxurious and prestigious: Caviar is a matter of history. Its reputation comes from hundreds of years ago in the ancient empires. Back then, high-end caviar was already scarce and it was reserved for members of the ruling family of the world’s largest kingdoms and empires.
- Caviar tastes like nothing else: it’s important to remember there are many varieties of caviar and each one has different flavors. However and no matter which type they try, people describe that they feel the sea in their mouth after tasting caviar. Plus, a touch of saltiness and a sweet, nutty sense of fish.
- Caviar is a healthy bomb: Caviar isn’t just having something unique and tasty, it also contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals. Caviar is rich in vitamins A, B12, C, and D. It also has a high content of magnesium, iron, and calcium and healthy fatty acids like omega-3 are also part of the package.
Usually, cooking tends to remove a large part of the nutrient content of food but since Caviar is eaten raw, you’ll be able to absorb everything it has to offer.
There are 27 species of sturgeon, which means you have many types of Caviar to choose from. You’ll find it available in many colors, textures, tastes and ways of production, which can make it confusing. But don’t worry! You don’t have to try all of them.

Salmon Roe is a reddish-orange semi transparent egg found in the bellies of female salmon. It’s also known as red Caviar and a good quality salmon roe is recognized for its shiny appearance, firm texture and great content of vitamins and proteins.
