Black Truffle Oil by La Tourangelle begins with expeller-pressed Grapeseed oil, which is slowly infused with back truffle aroma. This manufacture method follows a 150-year-old French tradition. A testament to its greatness, this oil was very recently recommended by The Wine Spectator.
Black Truffles originate in Provence, France and are one of the most precious ingredients of Mediterranean cooking. The strong, intense, earthy flavor of this oil will bring a deep aroma to your recipes, and will especially complement pasta, mashed potatoes, meat, and other dishes.
As one of the richest natural sources of linoleic acid, grapeseed oil can do wonders when it comes to fighting heart disease and bad cholesterol. Linoleic acid is a member of the polyunsaturated fatty acid family. These fatty acids tend to blend with cholesterol in the blood and transform it into something the body knows how to get rid of.
Just like the most prestigious perfumes, the black truffle aroma is very rare, expensive and difficult to source. Only a few companies master the art of producing the aroma. La Tourangelle infuses the aroma in grapeseed oil because of its great properties and its neutral flavor that won't interfere with the aroma like olive oil may do.
