AVGOTARAHO (GREY MULLET BOTTARGA) 

History

A Taste with… History. Avgotaraho has been considered a delicacy since the era of the Pharaohs and it was an important element in the Ancient Greek diet. Its value was also known in Byzantine times, while nowadays it occupies a prominent place among gourmet products.

What is this?

A delicacy of cured Grey Mullet Roe. Natural without preservatives, with high nutritional value and a pleasant long-lasting aftertaste

What makes Bottarga so special?

Produced exclusively from Grey Mullet Roe, recognized as the best roe for Avgotaraho production.
Standardized production techniques properly balance the salting and drying processes to deliver higher moisture and lower sodium in the final product.
It is coated by natural bee’s wax, which sufficiently preserves the product and its delicate taste during its shelf life, despite the low sodium content.

Why is it good for health?

It constitutes a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which reinforce body health by acting positively on the cardiovascular system and by strengthening the immune system.

“Tasting a single slice, will cause a velvety explosion of fruits and the sea in your mouth-combined with a spicy whiff- that will reach the utmost parts of your brain.
…a long lasting sensation…”
