For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 1 year+*
It takes a specific kind of palate to enjoy truffle products, and in reality, many don’t really appreciate them. This is especially true for kids who may think they are too “strong” or too “earthy”. However, for those of us who do enjoy truffles, there is really nothing else like them.
Truffles, and all of their associated products, including salts, oils, honeys, etc. are a true delicacy and really do make the perfect finish to a decadent meal. Unfortunately, not all truffle products can be considered quality with many of them being made with truffle “flavorings” rather than truffles themselves. This can be extremely upsetting, especially when you realize this after you have spent $20+ on a small bottle of truffle oil.
Thankfully, this will never be the case when buying any of da Rosario Organic Truffle Products. Made from the finest truffles that have been imported from Italy, you are sure to make a crowd-pleasing meal when using their accompaniments.
THE PRODUCT: Da Rosario Organics is a full line of USDA Certified Organic products made with real fresh white and black truffles, as well as fresh porcini mushrooms. Brought to you by Rosario Safina himself, the driving force behind the popularization of truffles in the US, and its transformation from elite luxury to everyday staple for millions of food lovers across the country, da Rosario Truffle products are truly unlike any others.
For over 28 years, chefs at the finest restaurants have relied on Rosario to bring them the highest quality truffles, and truffle products. Furthermore, his depth of knowledge on the subject, along with the publication of his book “Truffles” in 2002, have made him a noted authority and frequent guest expert for the likes of Martha Stewart Living, the New York Times, Vogue and CNN.
So, it was no surprise that Rosario introduced the first-ever line of USDA 100% Organic real truffle products, in 2008, becoming a quick favorite of truffle enthusiasts everywhere. With white and black truffle oils, a porcini mushroom oil, truffle honey, and vegan truffle mayonnaise, there truly is something for every truffle lover out there. They even offer truffle butter and traditional truffle mayonnaise (although I personally have not sampled these.)
NUTRITION-WISE: All of da Rosario products are made from real truffles, with no chemical ingredients, additives, artificial flavorings or color. Unlike most truffle products, which use chemically-derived synthetic flavorings, da Rosario Organics employs an exclusive, proprietary process to extract actual molecules from truffles – harvested from privately-owned USDA Certified Organic land in Italy.
Furthermore, every da Rosario product is made in their local USDA-Organic production plant in Long Island City, Queens using imported Organic ingredients from their partner in Italy. Their ingredients include: USDA Organic white truffles, black truffles and porcini mushrooms; USDA Organic EVOO; USDA Organic Acacia Honey and Sea Salt, and USDA 100% Organic Butter and USDA Organic Mayonnaise from the US.
As a side note, you should beware of ingredient labels using words like "aroma" and "essence" when referring to truffles, as these terms are not approved by the FDA or USDA for use as food ingredients. Also, avoid labels that cite truffle "extract," since the extraction process (squeezing) is physically impossible with truffles.
*It takes a specific kind of palate to enjoy truffle products, and in reality, many don’t really appreciate them. This is especially true for kids, who may think they are too “strong” or too “earthy”. However, I believe that exposing young children to these types of flavors is really good for them and will help to expand their tastes and likes of other foods well into their futures.
With that said, all of da Rosario truffle products, minus the honey (which shouldn’t be given to a child under 1 year), and the mayonnaise and butter (since I don’t think dairy is good for young children either), are fine for babies of any age, but frankly, probably won’t be considered one of their first favorite foods. Personally though, I love to drizzle truffle oil over my pasta and have been feeding that same pasta to my son since he was about 9-10 months old – and he’s never complained ;).
WHERE TO BUY: You can find da Rosario Organic Truffle Products at Retailers all over the United States. However, if you are wondering about a specific location in particular, please email email@example.com.
You can also buy them directly from their Online Store.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I have grown to truly appreciate the earthiness of truffles and find it hard to not order the menu items with “truffle” in their names when eating out. I’ve also made it a point to always have at least one truffle product on hand at all times, because they truly can make a dish!
However, I have also come to realize that not all truffle products are created equal and you can really waste a lot of money on inferior foods if you aren’t careful. Thankfully, this is not at all the case with da Rosario Organics, and in fact, are some of the best truffle-infused foods that I have ever tasted. From their perfectly seasoned oils to their rich, decadent honey, even their vegan mayonnaise goes great on sandwiches, veggie burgers, and grilled vegetables.
If you’re not a big fan of truffles, then I’d definitely say you should give it another go with da Rosario. I don’t think you are going to be disappointed.
