Caviar mixed with gold: The ultimate luxury?
A special type of caviar, made from rare albino fish eggs and laced with 22-carat gold, is thought to be the most expensive food on the planet. Priced at a staggering $300,000 per kilo (that’s about $40,000 per teaspoon), ‘White Gold’ caviar will be served to the super rich at some of the best restaurants in the world.
A newly crafted white caviar "Strottarga Bianco" is only available through special customer order.
Made from the white fish roe of the rare albino sturgeon; the manufacturers first dehydrate and finely grind the white roe. However, this alone doesn't warrant the extravagant mark-up price: 22 carat gold leaf is sprinkled into to the caviar, which the business has dubbed "gold strottarga" or "white gold" caviar.
