Description

A truffle is a subterranean fungus that grows wild in certain regions of the world during a season when the temperature and humidity are most suitable. (Kingdom: Fungus; family: Tuberaceae; class: Tuber). Most desirable, most exquisite truffles grow in certain regions of Europe, including Alba, Italy.

Truffles are praised for their unusual aroma that transforms any dish. In the wild, truffles emanate this aroma to attract animals that would dig into the soil and help disperse the truffle’s spores, thus serving its reproduction.

The fresher the truffle, the more exquisite its taste. If you are not sure you will consume a fresh truffle within the recommended 7-10 days, try our truffle products with a longer shelf life. Casa Truffle offers white and black truffles preserved in olive oil, as well as truffle pure’, truffle extract and other products.

The serving size of a truffle is too small to act as a primary nutritional source. Although truffles have certain beneficial elements, they are a great addition to a dish mainly for pleasure and feast of the palate.

The serving size is 10 gr. (1/3 oz.) per a main course dish. The serving in appetizers varies according to personal preference.
