Baikal caviar is harvested from the Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii), a medium-sized sturgeon that reaches adulthood between the age of five and six when the female begins to lay her eggs. The Baerii is the sturgeon species that most love to live in the deep bottoms of streams, lakes, and rivers.
Baikal is small-size caviar with a diameter between 2.5 to 2.7 mm and dark in color, almost black, and characterized by a very delicate texture.
In order to produce quality caviar, one of the fundamental aspects is the feeding method: the use of “drop feeding” guarantees that the sturgeon are always feeding on fresh food. In order to avoid that the fish can feed on food that has settled at the bottom of the river, nets are placed down that prevent them from reaching the bottom and therefore the muddy substrate - which would inevitably compromise the refined taste of the caviar.
Thanks to the precision, the meticulous care attributed to the product, our experts’ superior know-how, and the use of cutting-edge technologies, we are able to consistently serve an exceptional product, sure to satisfy the most demanding palates. The freshly packaged caviar is immediately vacuum-packed, a process that ensures that the product retains its freshness.
