Sealed Sturgeon Caviar for best results, to insure product freshness and for maximum storage capacity should be stored between 25F to 28F.
Sturgeon caviar has a lot of natural vitamins A, B, C, D, E. It has natural phosphorus, iron as well as rich source of sodium, calcium, magnesium and contains high amount of iodine.
Therefore under no circumstances you should ever freeze Sturgeon and never stored below 25F. If caviar is ever frozen all natural vitamins and micro elements will die. It’s egg brakes and caviar becomes mushy with lots of slime.
Unfortunately most household refrigerators don’t have those capabilities and can not be set between at 25F to 28F. A professional grade refrigerator is required.
Therefore we suggest to place caviar to coldest place of your refrigerator and set it as low as possible between 25F to 40F.
