Extra virgin olive oil is a natural premium base oil for producing truffle oil. With its health benefits and complimentary aromas, extra virgin olive oil not only delivers an effective carrier of truffle aromas, but the careful selection of the right blend of oil can also enhance the finished product. Our preferred blend of olive oil is typically mildly fruity and robust, with a smooth finish. Our Premium Truffle Oils offer the perfect balance between a high quality oil and truffle aroma, making it a very versatile product on a premium scale.

As a Canadian company, it would only be a matter of time that we produced the world's first "Product of Canada" truffle oil. While some say this is a controversial move by our company, we see it as a opportunity to promote and educate consumers about canola oil. Canola oil is the most consumed vegetable oil in Canada, Japan, and third overall in the world. Marketed as the healthiest cooking oil, canola oil is actually quite similar to extra virgin olive oil in that they both contain high amounts of oleic acid, which actually helps maintain its shelf stability and the truffle aroma. The canola plant was derived from the rapeseed plant and it is known that a majority of canola plants today have been modified using biotechnology but it is emphasized that only the plant is modified and not the oil. Nevertheless, we offer both selections of NON-GMO and regular canola oil to our customers. With its light taste and aroma, canola oil lets the truffle aroma shine, making it perfect for users that only want to highlight the truffle aroma.

Canola oil is widely used in the foodservice industry so it was a natural choice to offer a canola based truffle oil as a economical choice for customers that want a high performance truffle oil at an attractive price.
As a producer, we've experimented with many other oils but our offerings are ultimately decided upon by the markets. In Canada, canola oil was a natural choice. In Asia, we may offer something else. Whatever the market demands, we will offer it so please do not hesitate to contact us for custom truffle oil manufacturing.
