WHAT IS THE ROE ?

The roe is the most famous of Messolonghi’s products and also the most exquisite. As the etymology of the word “egg (avgo) and stuffed (taraxo)” indicates that roe is a natural product derived from finely stuffed fish eggs dipped in natural beeswax to preserve.

ORIGIN

Specifically, the roe originates from the ovaries of the female grey mullet (Kephalos) – known to locals as “MPAFA” – which, after being thoroughly cleaned, treated with salt, then subjected to a controlled drying process and finally immersed in wax for longer storage.

Its exceptional quality, unique taste makes it the most exquisite gourmet fish product. It constitutes a rich source of energy and high nutritional value, as it contains a significant amount of vitamins and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats.
