The word truffle comes from the Latin word ‘tuber’ that means outgrowth. Historians trace it back to early Egyptians, who ate them in goose fat. Truffles, black or white are complex in flavor, which means they need to be paired with bland foods like pasta, eggs, rice, steak, chicken or veggie.

Why the fresh truffles are expensive? Truffles are rare, IT is very hard to farm them. They only like very specific kinds of soil and tree. They live in close mycorrhizal association with the roots of specific trees and their fruiting bodies grow underground. Because they live inside tree roots, you can’t just plant truffle seeds in a field or so. They are also hard to find them only well-trained dog or pigs, traditional way can find them.
Although truffles are very costly, there are many more reasons to eat it apart from the truth that it is very exciting to eat a delicacy. If you are fond of eating truffles and mushrooms generally, here are 5 beneficial reasons to consider this delectable fungus, fresh truffle.
Truffles contain a high amount of protein and are very good for vegetarians. Protein can range from 20 to 30 percent per cup. Animal protein contains all the essential amino acids in the right ratios. It is important for muscle mass and bone health. Vegans don’t get any animal protein, so truffles could help here.
They are low in carbs – compared to other vegetables; truffles have lower proportions of carbohydrates. This is good for diabetics.
They are high in fiber – Truffles also contain up to 20 grams of fiber in a cup! Adults require a total of 25 to 38 grams of fiber a day to keep the body healthy. There are two different types of fiber – soluble and insoluble. Each type of fiber helps your body in different ways, so a normal healthy diet should include both types. Truffles are a soluble fiber, which will aid in digestion.
They are cholesterol free – High cholesterol has been linked to peripheral arterial disease, a disease of the blood vessels outside the heart and brain. High cholesterol is associated with an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. That can include coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.
They have vitamin D – There is more as truffles are a good source of vitamin D since they produce vitamin D when they’re exposed to the sunlight just like we are. A lack of vitamin D can cause kidney disease, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.
