2. Packaging and labeling

Choose caviar in a glass container, as it does not oxidize and it is possible to assess the appearance of the product. Take the jar in your hands and shake it, if it bubbles inside, do not buy caviar, as high-quality granular caviar fills the container without voids. Also, pay special attention to the lid, it should be stamped on the inside, if the numbers are pressed in, it is a fake!

3. Date of production

Red caviar is harvested in July and August. If another month of production is indicated on the lid, it may mean that frozen caviar was salted!

4. Ingredients

Try to buy caviar of the first grade, this is a guarantee that the jar will contain caviar of one species of fish. The amount of salt should not exceed 5-6%.
