Caviar is always known to be pricey but the Danish Rainbow Trout Caviar is known as a more wallet-friendly option and most desired alternative to sturgeon caviar. It consists of the role of the rainbow trout, also known as Oncorhynchus mykiss, farm-raised in Denmark.
Denmark was among the European pioneers in systematic pond farming of rainbow trout. It has been a long tradition in the country since the beginning of 20th century. The aquaculture industry is controlled by Denmark’s government and the current production of rainbow trout is approximately 40 000 to 50 000 tons per year in freshwater and seawater in total. Systematic pond farming in the country have to adopt improved farming techniques which are environmentally friendly. Due to vaccination of the trout, use of antibiotics is kept to a minimum.
Oncorhynchus mykiss is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. The color and flavor of the flesh depends on the diet and freshness of the trout; and although many believe that the rainbow trout is a selective eater, it is, in fact, a voracious predator and will eat nearly anything it can grab. Even smaller rainbow trout are known to eat fish up to a third their own size (which can range from 6 to 16 inches). Rainbow Trout mature at around the age of 5 years and have been known to live for up to 11 years.
The color of Danish Rainbow Trout Caviar is clear pastel orange orb with a bright tangerine orange “iris”, similar to that of Salmon Caviar. High-quality trout caviar should have lucidity of perfectly bright, shiny, fresh, great light refraction. Although the roe are smaller (3.5-4mm) than those of Salmon, Rainbow Trout Caviar has a well-defined texture and a bolder, richer taste. It smells like sea breeze with a hint of stone fruitiness.
