It is not easy to get snail or escargot caviar. It requires special conditions and huge work. Snails are kept in the reproductive cabins at a certain temperature, humidity and other conditions. Then they grow and lay eggs in the ground. The eggs of the snail caviar are manually assembled, sorted and washed.
Snail breeding is performed by the specialized farms that grow snails for human consumption. Some snail farms also collect and process snail caviar. Sometimes snails are grown and kept under the special conditions and temperature regime, with additional lighting and climate control. The producers work hard to create the best conditions for the maximum reproduction during which this caviar is produced.
In the natural state, the eggs are colorless, but after processing, the eggs can be of cream, pinkish-white or white shade. The diameter of the escargot eggs is usually 3-4 mm. Snail eggs of some specimens can even reach the diameter of 3-4 mm.
