Customer Reviews

Essentially, it has a flavor, very similar to that of this oil.
epicurean
I've tried others, and this and La Tourangelle infused Black Truffle Oil offer the most truffle flavor and essence so far.

Add this to pasta dishes, eggs, salads or wherever you want that wonderful truffle aroma and taste.

"Full strength" truffle oils (as opposed to olive oils that claim to have truffle flavor but are much weaker) often cost $6-$10 per ounce, so you'd better hope you're getting a far superior product to this one to pay several times as much. For the most part, you aren't.

No matter what they call it (truffle flavor, truffle essence, natural flavors related to the truffle) all "truffle oils" - every single one of them - use fake flavoring, specifically 2,4-dithiapentane. This is the main flavor compound found in truffles, similar to how vanillin is the main component of vanilla beans but can be made artificially. A few oils do contain tiny amounts of real truffles, but it's just for show; a "pure" truffle oil would require hundreds of dollars worth of white truffle just to make a few ounces of flavored oil.

If all truffle oils rely on the same compound that can be made relatively cheaply and consistently, how do the "better" truffle oils justify the higher price? First, they package them in fancy looking tiny bottles. Second, they use Italian olive oil as the base oil. The goal is to suggest (falsely) that the truffle flavor comes from real Italian truffles.

So while it's true that some truffle oils taste better than others, this is mostly (perhaps entirely) due to the quality of the oil used. La Tourangelle uses organic safflower oil, which is nearly flavorless. On its own, it does tastes more "chemically" than olive-oil based oils. If it took a lot of truffle oil to flavor a dish, this might be a serious weakness. But in reality it takes just a few drops to flavor a dish, so you're usually going to add additional fat anyway. You can put your savings towards the premium oil of your choice.

I usually use Rolands truffle oil.
I bought this brand to try (it was so cheap that it was worth to try) The difference in price between rolands and this brand is enormous, but also the difference in quality. I dont think truffle oil is a staple for the kitchen, unless you make rissoto three times per week, so if Im gonna make rissotto once per week or twice per month I will use the good stuff (especially the difference it makes in the dish).
This oil is very aromatic, but when you use it in your food it almost doesn't have any flavor.
It was very disappointing. I wont buy it again.

I have purchased more expensive truffle oils before and they have all been wonderful, so naturally I was skeptical when it came to a "cheaper" price. This has a nice taste and with any truffle product-- a little goes a long way! The oil they have used to infuse with the truffle is grape-seed and it is really nice to cook with. Weather on a budget or not, I give this product a thumbs up! Hope this helps!

I purchased another brand at a high end gourmet store at three times the price and it barely tasted like truffles. This oil is extremely intense and fresh in flavor. Very appealing and delicious.

I haven't done a side by side taste test but I've tried several brands of white truffle oil and this is as good as any of them. White truffle oil can take an ordinary dish up to that next level. I always try to keep some on hand.

I am disgusted that they are allowed to get away with tricking people. There is no actual truffle used in this product but they do everything they can to convince you that there is. The ingredients say organic sunflower oil and white truffle extract. Extract makes you think it was extracted from real truffles, doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. The extract is a chemical compound manufactured in a laboratory to mimic the smell of real truffles.

How about where it says in the label that "White truffles originate in Alba, Italy and are considered to many to be the most prestigious truffles"...do you suppose that means white truffles from Italy have anything to do with this concoction? Well, they don't. They might as well have written, "The sun is so and so many miles away from the earth." They put that sentence in just to further trick you so you think that you are getting an expensive product with a grand tradition behind it when all you are getting is some cheap oil with some synthetic chemical added to it.

They should be ashamed of themselves. Should they be allowed to sell you a synthetic chemical to eat? Maybe. Should they be allowed to market the product to convince customers that they are getting a product made with real truffles? No, they absolutely should not. We have food laws that are supposed to protect customers from this sort of trickery. The FDA has really dropped the ball on this.

Update: They are getting even trickier. Their label has now been changed to read truffle extract instead of truffle aroma. I called the FDA. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (see section 201 for definitions) has never defined the term extract. I was specifically told this on the phone by an FDA representative. She said because the term extract has not been legally defined by this act, anything can be called an extract. Thus, La Tourangelle can legally get away with calling something a truffle extract even if truffles weren't used to make it.

This oil is light and delicious. I've used it on pizza, scrambled eggs, and several other foods. It just takes a small amount to add just the right amount of flavor. I would certainly buy it again.
