The Instacart guide to black truffles
About black truffles
Black truffles are a delicacy that are prized for their rich flavor and aroma. This rare subterranean fungus grows underground on tree roots in the shade of hazelnut and oak trees. The most prized black truffles come from the Perigord region of France, though black truffles can be found in some other areas as well. Truffles are extremely rare, which drives the price up significantly, making this a very special but pricey addition to a fine meal. The truffle market is expected to grow to almost $6 billion worldwide over the next 20 years.
The flavor of a black truffle comes from its aroma, which can be described as meaty, musky, earthy, or garlicky. The chemicals dimethyl sulfide and 2-Methylbutanal, contribute to the distinctive aroma of black truffles. This fungus also gives off androstenol and androstenone pheromones, which may contribute to its appeal. For this reason, black truffles are lauded as an aphrodisiac and are a popular component of romantic dinners.
