If you're wondering why some people swear by using black truffle salt, the answer may lie in its name. The truffle, or 'fumage' as it is also known, is actually a fruiting body composed of an underground ascomycete organism, mostly one of a family called the Tuberculales. In addition to the Tuberculaceae, there are also many other genera of these fungi included in the genus Truffles such as Geopora, Pezo, Chlorophyllum, Limonia, Leucatinium, and several others.
Fungi are microscopic organisms that grow by using photosynthesis. They also make use of some type of metabolisms, such as respiration for respiring carbon dioxide and oxygen. The latter term is used in regards to the chemical processes that fungi use in order to break down organic compounds. While a good number of these processes are carried out by the fungi themselves, a large amount of those involved come from the organisms that live around and within the fungi themselves.
One of those organisms that take part in the digestion of organic compounds and is involved in respiration is the anaerobic bacterium Penicillium perfringens. That organism lives within the folds of its cell wall, making it hard to see. In some circumstances, it can be difficult to determine whether it's present at all, especially if a fungus has been growing inside of it and allowed it to harden. When this happens, a truffle, usually black in color, can appear on the surface of some food items. In other cases, however, it may be difficult to distinguish between a fungus and a truffle salt because the former's discoloring and pungent odor are quite similar to the latter.
All Ascomyctomycetes have a protective exoskeleton, which allows them to remain relatively hidden from view. The reason why they have this protective exoskeleton is that they need to remain dry and unaffected by water and other forms of moisture to survive. In addition, they also need to be protected from the air because their bodies become coated with a thin film of protein and mucus when exposed to air. In a moist environment, this coating weakens and the fungi have a much easier time growing and multiplying.
All Ascomycetes are members of the Ascomycanae, or the Ascomyspecies, a very diverse grouping of fungi. Although each species is unique in some respects, all of them have one thing in common. They are members of the 'Protozoan' group of fungi, which are a part of the kingdom Plantae. This is a group of fungi that are characterized by a nucleus and a slimy (or 'gummy') interior which exists as amyloid.
Prokaryotic fungi are bacteria and other microorganisms that grow within living cells, without causing them to multiply and spread. Although most of these fungi do not reproduce, a few of them do cause disease in humans or animals.
The black truffle salt contains ascomycetic prokaryotic ascomycians, which are a special species of these prokaryotes. The name is given to the black-colored varieties found in salty water. While they are not in fact as poisonous as other types of these fungi, their pungent odors and texture are very offensive and they are not generally found as such in the wild. They are known to grow on plants like spruce needles, pine needles, and birch needles, and it is believed that these fungi can infect and cause infections in certain animals as well.
Some species of Ascomycdetes grow on human tissue, such as on the skin and the nails. Some people develop allergies to Ascomycdetes and have problems with their own immune systems, leading to skin and nail problems as a result. Other species are considered a potential threat to the health of animals, such as the Ascomycetes found on horses. Truffle salt is made up of many different species of Ascomycetes and some of them will react differently when mixed with other ingredients in order to produce a more suitable salt.
