Maison Henras stands out by offering different formats of frozen truffles.

As professionals in the food sector, we have two freezing cells within our company. These professional cells operate at a cooling capacity of -30°C and allow optimization of truffle freezing. Indeed, the time during which the truffle freezes must be as fast as possible.

This process prevents the truffle from becoming waterlogged or accumulating bacteria. It also makes it possible to preserve the organoleptic characteristics of the Périgord black truffle and to consume it all year round! Following this process, the truffle can be stored at -18°C for one year.
