WHAT IS THE TRUFFLE
The truffle is an underground mushroom, the result of a complex apparatus consisting of a dense, branched and very extensive interweaving of whitish filaments called hyphae.
The truffle is made up of a fleshy mass called 'gleba', covered with a sort of bark, the 'peridium'.
The characteristics of structure and color of these parts allow to easily distinguish the type of truffle.
The truffle is essentially made up of water, fibers and mineral salts, but also of organic substances provided by the tree which they live in symbiosis, which influence the characteristics of color, flavor and aroma;
for example, truffles close to oaks will have a more aromatic scent, while those grown in symbiosis with limes and poplars will be lighter and have a slightly garlicky scent.
