Truffle Oil

What is truffle oil?

There are two types of truffle oils which are produced and sold in Australia, synthetic truffle oil and genuine oil in real truffles. Real truffle oil consists of thinly sliced truffles such as black truffles or white truffles. These are then added in a natural oil such as olive or grape seed resulting in an earthy taste. Synthetic truffle oil is a cheaper and poorer quality product compared to using real infused truffles. Synthetic truffle oil gets its taste using a chemical compound called 2,4-dithiapentane. The mixture is then heated to create the final product which results in a truffle flavored oil.

At Pure Wild, we do not supply or stock any synthetic alternatives. All our truffle products are made with 100% real truffles.
