legends-about-truffles

The truffle, known for its characteristic aromatic fragrance and flavor, is a fungus that grows naturally in the ground, near the roots of oak trees, oak or poplar trees, making his quest much harder and addictive, so that the best job seekers use expensive trained dogs. Many animals go greedy for the smell that can hear come out of the ground and that, unfortunately, the human nostrils fail to grasp. The best known animal, in addition to the dog, is undoubtedly the pig.

In addition to an intense aroma and flavour, the truffle has many beneficial properties for our health, property known since the days of ancient Greece, a period in which, according to the testimony of the poet Juvenal, was considered an aphrodisiac tuber, as originated by lightning hurled by Jupiter on a plant of oak and, being the God known for his erotic activities, he was given an intense power inspiring.

In addition, it also has numerous nutritional properties. This fungus, in fact, rich in magnesium, potassium and vitamin B12, is also very poor in fat and calories. It is also an excellent source of protein, especially if you exclude from the diet meat consumption. The biggest benefit, however, is the fact that this is a food low in cholesterol and, indeed, helps to lower overall levels in the blood.

#fattorialavacchio has an own truffle ground, where we will be delighted to welcome you to a collection.
