Top 10 Most expensive delicacies in the world

Make a list of the world’s most expensive products is difficult, because in the world of luxury gastronomy everything is so volatile. And yet there are foods that in any season, regardless of trends and economic situation in the world, are unrelenting demand, which determines their high price.

1. Beluga caviar

Beluga caviar is the most expensive product in the world, because a kilogram of Beluga caviar costs up to $ 5,000. Beluga is one of the rarest species of sturgeon, which inhabits the Caspian basin. This caviar is harvested from sturgeon adults (20 years and older), which weigh at least 2 tons. Beluga caviar ranks first in the size of eggs (up to 2.5 mm in diameter) and nutritional value. The criterion for assessing the quality Beluga caviar is its color: the lighter the ROE, the higher the price (color varies from black or a dark purple to a pearly-gray). When you crack the egg, it bursts, and you feel a sharp salty taste, which nothing can not be confused. Beluga caviar is usually served with toast and butter, which underline her specific taste.

Saffron is the most expensive seasoning in the world. Depending on the time of year, the price of saffron varies from 1500 to 2500 dollars a pound (0,450 kg). Saffron is obtained from the flowers of saffron, hand-picked. To produce a pound of dry saffron, it is necessary 50 – 70 thousand flowers (this is a crop from an area of a football field).This is a very long and laborious process, which explains the sky-high (as for spice) the price of saffron.
