Different types of Iranian Caviar


The name caviar comes from the Persian word ...(Khag-avar) which means "the roe-generator".
This name in Persian is actually used to denote the sturgeon itself and its product,  caviar is an
animal product and not considered to be
vegetarian for this reason. However there is a soy based caviar that is vegetarian on the market.


Caviar is the processed, salted roe of various species of fish, most notably sturgeon.
It is commercially marketed throughout the world as a delicacy and is eaten principally as a garnish or spread, as with
hors d'oeuvres.
Today the best caviar comes from sturgeon fished from the
Caspian Sea by Iranian and Russian fishermen
 Some of the highest prices are paid for Beluga,
Ossetra, and Sevruga varieties (note that the large-grained
Beluga caviar comes from the Beluga sturgeon and has nothing to do with the Beluga whale).
Dwindling yields due to
overfishing and pollution have resulted in less costly alternatives, processed from the roe of whitefish and North Atlantic salmon, becoming popular.
