Where can I find REAL truffle oil

I’ve heard that all the truffle oil that is sold is really still just infused chemically, even if it states differently. Could that be true? Where do I get the real stuff??

    I don’t know what this has to do with manhattan, but it’s my understanding that there are no extractable oils from truffles that allow you to replicate their flavors in an oil, so what is sold as truffle oil is a chemical approximation.

      The real stuff is real truffles! 🙂


      “The flavor of real truffles, especially black, is evanescent, difficult to capture in an oil under the best of circumstances.”

        Thank you for the link. I live in New York, that is what it has to do with Manhattan.

        I’m a much larger fan of truffle salt over truffle oil. The flavors tend to come out more. But I find the quality of salts to be quite varied.

          Thank you, I have never tried truffle salt. Do you have a specific brand or store that you purchase one that you enjoy, from?

            The Filling Station at Chelsea Market carries truffle salt.

            As with the oils though, I’m fairly certain it’s still flavored by the chemical, and not by actual truffles.

              The best one I’ve had was from Far West Fungi (though I haven’t tried the Chelsea Market one). It’s in San Francisco but they do mail order. I will say that I’ve had a bit of a mixed experience with them. The first jar I’ve purchased was more expensive and the ingredient were pretty much salt and truffles. The second jar was cheaper and said there was truffle flavoring in addition to truffles and salt. The first jar was so much better. I’m not sure which one they’re selling these days.

                The product you linked to is salt w/ SUMMER truffles. At least it is an unadulterated product, but it doesn’t taste of actual black truffles, but of another underground fungi that is said to be a milder, though pleasant, flavor that doesn’t activate the pleasure centers in quite the way actual black & white truffles do. In other words, summer truffles are not out-of-season black truffles, but something tasting more akin to mushrooms. Regarding the taste, I am speaking only from hearsay as I am on this board to find an affordable way to sample the amazing taste of truffles, myself. However I have verified that “summer truffles” are not what is traditionally called truffles at all.

                I plan to contact the store to object to their description that erroneously refers to “black truffles”. Though I doubt this was intentional, it is legally fraud.

                  Interesting. I did not know that summer truffles are not actually truffles, but i did know that they are virtually tasteless. Now I know why.

                    As I’m looking at the label, it seems that this is the one with truffle flavoring added. The first jar I ordered was not summer truffle and it was really really good. The one they’re selling now is probably like my second jar — so I’d probably say not worth it right now.

                I find that the best ones have lots of truffle bits in them.

                  Or better yet, a whole truffle! 😀 Yum.

                Urbani Truffles (10 West End Ave) sells a variety of truffled products, including oils & salt.

                  I’m sure their fresh truffles are amazing, but their salt has only 2% actual truffles and added “aromas”. It is basically a synthetic product as that tiny amount of truffle is most likely not discernable on food. Some salts are as much as 10% truffles, but only the most expensive ones are traditional truffles, rather than “summer truffles”–a different fungi altogether.
