Pork meat (80% lean meat, 20% bacon), salt, natural flavourings and spices, black truffle (tuber aestivum), truffle flavouring. Sugars: dextrose, sucrose. Preservatives: E252 (potassium nitrate), E250 (sodium nitrite). Antioxidant: E300 (ascorbic acid).

Description
Salami made from medium grain minced Italian pork meat selected from quality cuts.
The truffles are sliced into thin slivers and added to the mixture, adding their typical aroma to the taste and smell of the salami. Stuffed in the natural ‘pealed’ hog or ‘straight’ bovine casing in the typical shape and size of the “turista” raw salami; 15 to 20 cm in length, weighing between 300 to 400 g per portion. Hand tied or netted according to customer requirements. Contains no dairy derivatives, gluten or GMO.

Curing
This process takes place in two distinct phases: a drying phase in which the product receives warm air in order to remove moisture for about five days and the actual curing phase in which temperature and humidity remain constant until optimal curing is achieved. The curing period varies from 15 to 30 days.

Portions
The weight of each salami is about 350 grams. Truffle salamis are traditionally tied
in 3 piece chains, weighing a total of approx. 1 kg per chain.

Shelf life
Truffle raw salami does not have a pre-defined shelf life; nevertheless it is best before 3/4 months from curing to fully appreciate its organoleptic properties.
