How to store fresh truffles ?

The best way to taste fresh truffles is to eat them as fresh as possible in a very short while.

In order to guarantee optimal quality and freshness, We have a minimum of 2 arrivals of truffles per week. Therefore it is not necessary for you to store them too long at home.

The truffle is a living mushroom that develops its full range of fragrance and flavour for about 10 to 15 days. After this time, the mushroom enters a phase of slow degradation.

The aromas contained in the truffle are very volatile, so it is recommended that truffles are stored in a hermetically sealed container.

It is also important that the truffle is kept dry, i.e. wrapped in a clean cloth or absorbent paper towel and stored in the refrigerator at a temperature of between 2 and 5°C.

Be careful with rice, which is often recommended to keep the truffle, as it tends to dry it out. As this mushroom is essentially composed of water, it would therefore tend to lose its soft and juicy side.


It is possible to freeze black truffles (Summer, Autumn and Winter black truffles) while preserving their taste and aroma. However, it is not recommended to freeze white Alba truffles as they lose almost all their flavour.

  • To freeze the whole truffles; check that the truffles are clean and pack them in a freezer bag, if possible vacuum-packed.
  • To freeze the truffles previously sliced, in strips or in cubes; Lay the slices of truffle on non-stick paper and place in the freezer. Once frozen, store them in a closed jar in the freezer. This technique allows you to use them according to your needs throughout the year.

In Summary :

  1. Wrap the truffles with kitchen paper (which you will have to renew every day),
  2. Place them in a tightly closed jar.
  3. Keep them in the fridge (between 2 and 5°C).
  4. And use within a maximum of 1 week after purchase.
