Aldi says the local authority has confirmed that the product is caviar

The site encouraged customers to add a touch of luxury with their "exclusive, specially selected British caviar". It is supplied by KC Caviar, Garforth, West Yorkshire. But Kenneth Benning of London Fine Foods claimed the chain's version was "not the right one."

He said, "Real caviar is the raw salted roe of sturgeon fish that has not been treated.

The product of KC Caviar was rinsed in saline and passed through a calcium bath.

"This surrounds the deer in a form of jelly that alters the molecular structure and increases lifespan.

    Caviar usually spoils within days, but the brand selling Aldi lasts for weeks

Real caviar spoils within a few days. I bought KC Caviar almost 16 weeks ago and it has not been spoiled yet. "

Mr. Benning, who owns a sturgeon farm, added, "This is a confirmation that the roe has undergone molecular changes and is not the real thing."

Last night, the store struck back with the statement saying, "Aldi's main office has confirmed that this product is caviar."
