Did you know? The precious white truffle is perhaps the most expensive food on the planet. Depending on the year, its price remains the only obstacle for the true aficionados of its powerful aroma and rich taste. This year, you may grab a kilo for almost 4.000 euros, which is a good price if you take into consideration the auctions where the bids for the biggest white truffles can reach the record price of 34.000 USD (2012).
Although a single truffle can be used for several dishes, since a few shaves are enough to add the precious flavour of this expensive ingredient, its price remains an obstacle mainly for its individual afficionados. Unfortunately, the white truffle cannot be cultivated, while specially trained pigs or (and lately mostly) dogs are needed to track it down and unearth it. The great demand combined with the limited resources results to the high rate of its price internationally.
However, the gourmant restaurants allover the world look for its divine aroma. So, the problem has been solved thans to bottles of olive oil infused with truffles. Naturally (or not) such a precious ingredients could not keep away the scientists whose efforts to create an artificial substitute led to a truffle oil that immitates the real flavour, though not as successfully to the dismay of the gourmands around the world who do realise that real, authentic foods are our last defence against for a natural, healthy diet.
