Poddi's Truffle oil is the real deal. Many truffle oils are made with either grape seed oil or cotton seed oil. Check the label - if it doesn't say olive oil, then it's something else. Other oils begin degrading the instant you open the bottle and have short lives. Our truffle oil comes from our truffle growers who make a little oil on the side. It is extra virgin olive oil based, and has been infused with real truffle aromatics - you can smell and taste the difference.
We prefer to sell our truffle oil in smaller 55ml and 100ml bottles to encourage our customers to use them while they're fresh, rather than have half-full bottles sitting in the pantry going off. We also encourage minimal usage.
If the worlds best chefs think it's ok to (judiciously) use a few drops of truffle oil, an oil that meets with their high standards, then they obviously believe in it, and find it an affordable way to add that indefineable flavour to their cooking. You should too!
