White Truffle & Black Truffle
Although virtually everyone agrees that truffles are some of the most delightful delicacies to be found anywhere on earth, describing their flavours does not generate nearly as much consensus.
Truffle flavours are experienced a little bit differently by each person. Most describe black truffles as a mix of things like nutty, earthy and woody with hints of other influences mixed in. White truffles, on the other hand, are usually associated with the sharper scents. Many people describe white truffle as similar to garlic or shallots but with a musky aroma.
The taste of each truffle will vary slightly, as will the language used to describe it. But there is a common denominator: people find them irresistible! Because their aromas mimic powerful mammalian pheromones, eating fresh truffles triggers a profound culinary experience.
Truffles are renowned for their outstanding flavours, but they also have a number of important nutritional benefits, which are often overlooked. Both black and white truffles are rich in both nutrients and antioxidants. Micronutrients such as phosphorous, sodium, calcium, magnesium, manganese and iron are present in significant amounts in all kinds of truffles, although concentrations vary depending on the type. Also, truffles are a good source of important antioxidants like lycopene, vitamin C, homogentisic acid and gallic acid. Not only are they delicious, truffles are good for you too!
The flavours of Italian truffles can be used to elevate any dish. Although most people opt to shave them over fresh pasta, they can also be used in a variety of sauces to achieve new levels of flavour depth.
The truffles we carry are stored only in water, without preservatives or artificial colouring, so our customers can see that they are getting only the finest ingredients.
