What is the difference between white truffle flavor and black truffle flavor?
Black – The Winter Black Truffle is highly sought after for its earthy, subtle aroma, and has a taste that can be described as mixture of “chocolate and earth.”
White – The flavor is sweet with hints of garlic, along with a musky fragrance. White truffles are particularly pungent. A fresh, white truffle has a compelling aroma that makes you want to breathe it in deeply, somewhere between a chamois leather and the rind of a ripe brie, but with the delicacy of a spring flower. The flavors give a nod to the mushroom but with umami-ness – earthy and nuttiness.
How do I make my own truffle oil using your product?
Simply mix 2ml of the truffle essence of your choice with 1 liter of olive oil. Mix together well by stirring or shaking. Let the mixture sit overnight. Your product is now ready to use! Make sure to keep it sealed tightly and in a cool place.
What kinds of products can be made using your truffle essence/aroma?
The possibilities are endless! Just to give you a few ideas: truffle oils, truffle butter, truffle salt, truffle popcorn, truffle sauces of all types (cream, tomato, broth, and butter based), truffle honey, on an on. Check out our recipes and resources for more truffle goodness.

How long do your products last?
The shelf life of our products really depends on how you store them. When you place an order, it will be shipped to you in a glass container. Make sure to keep it in the glass or your own glass container since that is the best ways of storing it. The aroma will dissipate through something like very thin plastic. Also, keep it in the refrigerator if you can. It lasts longer in cool places. If you keep it cool and sealed up tight, it will last for over a year. Once mixed with oil to make truffle oil for example, the more you open the bottle the faster the aroma will fade. The flavor will stay, but the aroma will weaken.
