Useful information for buying caviar - and enjoying caviar


(Q) Question: What is 'Malossol' or Malossol Caviar?

The term Malossol comes from the Russian language and literally means 'little salt' or 'lightly salted'. Alternate spellings for this term are: Malosol and Malossal.

The term Malossol does not refer to a variety of caviar (e.g. Beluga or Sevruga), rather it refers to the actual treatment of the caviar. The caviar has had minimal salt added to it and, therefore, has a more delicate and truer flavour.

Malossol caviars are the only ones labelled as 'fresh' and must be kept under constant refrigeration.
