Urbani is an environmentally friendly company that does not import any kind of wild sturgeon caviar. All of the sturgeon caviar available on the website is farm-raised and harvested legally. All Urbani caviar is treated with the purest sea salt and processed in rooms with consistent temperature to avoid any possible overheating or overcooling. The company’s stringent standards completely correspond to and even exceed the requirements of CITES, US Fish, Wildlife Service and FDA. Caviar is a type of roe, and roe is the eggs that come from fish (most famously, the sturgeon). True caviar can come from four types of sturgeon: Beluga, Osetra, Sterlet, or Sevruga. Caviar should be kept cold and served chilled, never at room temperature. Metallic spoons should not be used while serving or eating it because they could leave an unfortunate metallic taste on the roe. Serving Size: Allow at least 1⁄2 to 1 ounce per person. Storage: Caviar should be kept at 26-35 F. It will last for up to 6 weeks in the refrigerator when the container is unopened. Air is caviar’s largest enemy: if not entirely consumed, please cover the entire surface of the tin with plastic film. The remaining caviar should be consumed within the next 2-3 days.
