Kunming Rare Truffle Co.,LTD
Kunming Rare Truffle Co.,LTD is a company specialised in Black
Truffle field survey, development and study. From 1988, there are
32 varieties of Truffles to be discovered early or late in
southwest China.The three main varieties that has been developed
are Tuber Sinense, Tuber Aestivum, and Tuber Xizangense. Tuber
melanosporum is waiting for identify, but Tuber magnatum not, for
small in amount, which has not been commercialized. But with more
new varieties discovered, we believe, more varieties with business
value will be discovered.
It’s of several thousands years’ history since Black Truffle
discovered in Yunnan province. In the past, some mountaineers took
it for supplement of nourishment. Especially for the women, after
the birth, it’s said Black Truffle can promote the quantity and
quality of latex, which will improve the body resistance to
disease. For men above 50 years, Black Truffle can promote the
sexual function till 70-year-old. But most of the mountaineers
didn’t realize its value, they just found pigs like it very much,
and then with a strong breeding capability.
We’d like to thank France Purchasers, with whose promoting action,
for the Truffle development and utilization.
In the river of history, for its special fragrance that impressed
us deeply for enjoyment and nourishment, France Truffle is much
preferred and greeted by most of us. But when some new truffle
arises, the exclusive effect will happen, which has been foreseen
by us. When I was interviewed by England Daily Telegraph: How do
you see if your truffle resisted by European?”Waiting”, I just
said. There will be a process for purchasers and customers to
compare and realize. During the 17-year preparation, in fragrance,
France truffle is better, which make it comparatively expensive.
But fragrance will change (we will submit some advice for you). In
the sight of ecology, it’s quite different between Chinese truffle
and France truffle. The host trees of France truffle is oak
variety, maritime climate and soil PH 7-8.5, while Chinese Black
Truffle is Huashan pine variety, continental monsoon climate and PH
4.5-7. We analyzed in many aspects of soil PH value, which improves
that the fragrance of Chinese truffle will be promoted very much
when the PH value as high as 8-8.5.
Nutrition Elements: It’s not been reported in European about the
Chinese Black Truffle nutrition elements. To make a explanation for
consumers, in 2001, Dr. Gao Jingming, Kunming Institute of Botany,
the Academy of Sciences of China, lead a group of several doctors
to study the compounds of Chinese Black Truffle for as long as one
year (materials studied provided by our company), through which, 26
compounds has been identified among which 6 are new ones. At the
same time, the nutrition elements analysis of Chinese truffle was
done, through which, 18 kinds of proteide aminophenol and 5 kinds
of fatty acid were identified. All this make the science basis for
further development and utilization (study report will be
The study result shows that: As a special kind of altiplano,
Chinese Black Truffle covers the area with 800-2500m above sea
level, and contains rich proteid elements, the compounds in which
can help resist plateau reaction, soften head and heart blood
vessels, enhance artery blood flow, rehabilitate cells, and prevent
and control many diseases with healthy function.
How to search truffle:
The Black Truffle propagation is very complicated, with the growing
period 8-10 months, the solid body of cephalosporin is very tight
growing in soil, that cephalosporin diffusion is hardly to complete
by themselves, so it need the diffusion assistance from animals and
insects attracted by its special androsterone information element
(fragrance attraction) for food. During the food search made by
animals and insects, some cephalosporin will be brought to the area
around the truffle or further areas, through which to enlarge the
goal of propagation. Based on characteristics, we search and find
Black Truffles. Presently, Yunnan mountaineers are searching and
finding truffles according to ecological environment.
How to ensure the truffle quality:
Every year we will dispatch technological personnel to make
guidance for the mountaineers to harvest. When Black Truffle
harvest from mountain,the damaged Black Truffle should be picked
out, we collect and classify Black Truffles in four grades, which
will separately put into breathe freely plastic or bamboo cases,
then covered by lichen that are good in keep moisture, and, at
last, put into fresh-keeping storage, 5-10℃ with moisture control.
Thus, the fresh-keeping time will be much longer, and can ensure
the truffle quality.
1. Before exporting, Black Truffle should be cleaned with drinking
water in cleaning equipment, then air-day the surface moisture.
2. Select carefully, to pick out the ones that are not very good in
