Generally speaking, just one tablespoon of caviar is packed with an array of nutrients including protein, B vitamins, iron and magnesium. This makes it essential for building blood and repairing tissue, and for supporting energy production and a restful sleep. Caviar is also a great source of essential fatty acids, including omega-3s, which are critical for lowering inflammation and encouraging a healthy cardiovascular and nervous system. Essential fatty acids are also known to be an effective treatment for depression, memory loss and reducing cholesterol levels. Caviar is a significant source of vitamins A and D. Vitamin A is the foundation for good vision, a healthy immune system and cell growth, while vitamin D helps prevent cold, flu, osteoporosis and cancer.
Lemberg Trademark Red Caviar products are extracted from various Northwest Pacific Ocean wild salmon species. Harvested raw caviar is directly delivered to the Lemberg factory processing facilities from the pristine, environmentally untainted fishing regions of the United States of America (Alaska) and Canada.
Sturgeon Caviar - subject to the prohibition of sturgeon species fishing in their natural habitats, Lemberg sturgeon caviar is primarily supplied by the European sturgeon farm-breeding facilities. Sturgeon caviar harvested in the modern aquaculture breeding facilities does not differ in its quality and/or taste from that extracted from the freshwater sturgeon. Siberian (Acipenser Baerii) and Russian (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii) sturgeon species are those bred by the aquaculture facilities. American sturgeon specimen is the single sturgeon specimen permitted for fishing in its natural habitat. American sturgeon caviar is provided to Lemberg Caviar House from the region of the Mississippi River, USA.
