What is grey mullet bottarga?
A delicacy of cured Grey Mullet Roe. Natural, without preservatives, with high nutritional value and a pleasant long lasting finish.
What makes Trikalinos Bottarga so special?
- Produced exclusively from Grey Mullet Roe, recognized as the best roe for Bottarga 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 preserves the product and its delicate taste during its shelf life, despite the low sodium content.
Why is it good for health?
Research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed that Trikalinos Bottarga is a food of high nutrition value, providing significant amounts of protein, fatty acids and vitamins. It has a healthy lipid profile in terms of omega-3/omega-6 ratio, while the antiplatelet reactivity of its oil indicates a putative antithrombotic potential, which was verified recently in collaboration with the Greek Institute of Pasteur, in animal experimental model.
How to enjoy…
To remove easily the protective wax leave the Bottarga stick outside of the refrigerator for at least one hour before you cut it with a sharp knife.
Keep the remaining waxed Bottarga in the drawer of the refrigerator, covering the exposed part with cling film.
