Rare Albino White Gold Caviar worth $112,600 per kilo has been recognized as the most pricey food in the world
An Austrian fish farmer has created Strottarga Bianco, a brand-new white gold caviar from the nearly extinct albino sturgeon and enhanced its luxury content by adding flecks of gold. Made from rare albino fish eggs, it is laced with 22 carat gold to give it right to be listed as the most expensive food in the world. The brand-new product will be served to royalty and the wealthy guests of the best restaurants in the world from Monaco to Dubai.
The white gold caviar Strottarga Bianco can be purchased for $112,070 per kilogram — and that’s the “specialty” price offered to select customers. According to its creators a 51 year old fish farmer Walter Gruell and his son Patrick, 25, the 22-karat gold item will cost normal folks at least $308,757 due to its rarity.
The white gold caviar was estimated according to three criteria: exclusiveness, gourmet taste and health advantages. By adding gold leaf to the mix, Walter Gruell increased value to the caviar as a food group full of nutrition. It is claimed that small quantities of gold leaf is good for the immune system. The reason for high quality of the white gold caviar is pure unpolluted water that flowing down from Austrian mountain snowfields, the habitat of rare albino sturgeon.
To enhance its flavor, the caviar gets seasoned before being dehydrated. After that it gets grated finely and get mixed with a small amount 22 karat gold. Austrian father and son only use older sturgeon, because the eggs are more elegant, smooth, aromatic and better tasting with a spongier texture. Patrick Gruell adds “The golden yellow white spreadable powder that we create can quickly be made into a paste, risotto or put on toasted bread with butter. It only needs very small quantities for the flavour to be spread to a meal. The taste is very strong and taste distinctly of fresh fish.”
