After this period of time it is still possible to eat the product, bearing in mind that it will begin to lose some of its qualities that make it so special. Small specks of mold are absolutely normal as the truffle is an underground mushroom and, like all mushrooms, has a vegetative body represented by a whitish mold. The truffle is literally born from the symbiosis of molds and roots from which they steal the nutrients. The truffle needs an external cleaning before being used, ideally under cold running water with a toothbrush, in order to free it from any residues of earth and small mold spots. To keep it at its best, we recommend storing it in the fridge for about 7 days, otherwise it can be safely frozen.

Like mushrooms, they spontaneously arise in the soil at a depth ranging from 10 to 60 centimeters in free areas, such as woods or uncultivated land, along river banks or in controlled areas called truffle grounds.”.
