How to check the quality of my truffles?
You can always test magic truffles before use. First take them out of the package and put them in the cup. Check whether the truffles look “fresh”. Then smell them. If they smell a bit like nuts with some sour hints, they're okay. Then you can feel the texture. The truffles should be a little firm and give some resistance when squeezed before they break. If you feel like you're squeezing a smushy tomato, the truffles are probably not okay anymore. If in doubt, you can always contact us.

Our Truffles are grown and packaged with the best possible care. The truffles consist of about 35% solids. In comparison, a normal mushroom consists of about 5% solids. The other 95% is water! That is why our magic truffles have a much longer shelf life than regular magic mushrooms. Because we always vacuum pack our products, we can guarantee a shelf life of 3 months if stored correctly.
