The Spring White truffle is characterized by a strong scent with light "garlic notes" and a pronounced taste that makes it versatile in the kitchen. Its ripeness occurs from January until April. Its color is between white and tawny with darker veins and sparse white specks. These truffles are found in sandy, clay-rich or calcareous soils but the places where they grow do not show any distinguishable features.
Where once pigs were the primary animal used to locate these buried treasures, today dogs lead the search, specifically the "Lagotto Romagnolo" breed which utilizes its excellent nose and strong intelligence. As pigs wanted to consume their prize, the dog is happy just to lead its owner to the exact point of the truffle buried under the ground.
The truffle is the fruity body of fungus belonging to the genus Tuber. The truffle completes its entire life cycle underground and must live in symbiosis with certain trees to produce the precious sporocarp. The internal spore producing part of the truffle is called the gleba. The gleba varies in color in different species, ranging from white to black, or from pink to brown, and it presents distinctive veins of various thickness. These morphological features, combined with size and organoleptic characteristics, are the basis for the identification and classification of the different kinds of truffles.
A truffle is made up of more than 80% water with the remainder of its composition being mineral elements. Truffle is rich in potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper, making it a powerful superfood!
