Reasons to love Kalix Löjrom PDO

Kalix Löjrom PDO, the roe of vendace, are the eggs of this small salmonid fish species. The fish is sourced from a specific part of the Gulf of Bothnia, delimited at sea by the Torneå river estuary to the north and the Åby river estuary to the south, and extending no more than 40 km from the coast.

What makes Kalix Löjrom PDO instantly recognisable is its unique orange pigmentation: the colour scale S2070-450R according to the Swedish national colour scheme. The vandace special feed explains this unique feature and sets it apart from other freshwater species in this specific geographical area.
