Our supplier has dedicated more than 20 years to the grey mullet roe production, located in the Brazilian city of Itajaí - Santa Catarina - where some of the world’s best roe is produced. They are the only company in the country with the SIF (Seal of Federal Inspection) in the grey mullet roe market, what assures our concern with the product´s high quality.

100% Brazilian, ready for consumption - you really shouldn't cook it, only use it to finalize dishes - and that has won the trust of the main kitchen chefs in Brazil.

WHAT IS BOTTARGA?

Centuries ago, Phoenicians anglers were the first to discover the flavor of the grey mullet roe. They were the ones who developed the product that it´s known today as Bottarga by the European and as Karasumi by the Asian.

Known in Europe as the Mediterranean Caviar, Bottarga Gold is produced from the grey mullet roe fished in the sea of Santa Catarina. This fish, that can only be captured between the months of May and June, has an extremely high nutritional value and its golden colored roe, is transformed in Bottarga from a natural and artisanal procedure.

The grey mullet fishing has been controlled by the government these last years in order to preserve the species.

BENEFITS AND TRADITIONS

Bottarga Gold is a rich source of proteins and Omega-3 that reinforce the body health, acting positively beyond on the cardiovascular system and strengthening the immune system.

In the Asian countries, especially in Japan and Taiwan, which are great consumers of this dish, it is a tradition to give Bottarga as a gift at birthdays, weddings and in parties, because it symbolizes good luck, prosperity, fertility, happiness, and richness as well due to its golden color. 

For the Italians, especially the ones that live in Sardinia Island who are the biggest Bottarga consumers in the world consider this dish a cultural heritage, making it a part of the population´s daily menu.
