Natural Gold Caviar from Albino Sturgeon
Albino sturgeon is a rare type of sturgeon that lacks pigmentation, which gives its eggs a distinct golden hue. The roe is harvested from mature female albino sturgeon that are at least ten years old. The most exclusive and expense example of this type of caviar is the coveted Almas from the albino Beluga. This is incredibly rare, and boasts a shimmering golden color and a flavor that’s light and delicate, making it a true one-of-a-kind caviar. This caviar gold is a treasure, and as such comes with a hefty price tag.
The taste is described as rich and buttery, with a slightly nutty flavor. It is typically served cold on a small spoon or on top of a blini with a dollop of crème fraîche. It pairs well with Champagne or other sparkling wines.
Other Types of Gold Caviar
There are other types of fish roe that are dyed to mimic the golden color of albino sturgeon caviar, and these are often sold at a lower price point. One such example is "caviar gold," a product that is made by dyeing the roe of whitefish or paddlefish to give it a golden appearance.
