-Quinonoid and polyphenolic biopolymers are described as the most important constituents of truffle pigments. Both alkali-soluble and insoluble fractions of peridium and gleba tissues of truffles of the genus Tuber have been investigated. All the data collected suggest that these black pigments are allomelanins of polyketide origin.

Abstract

-Quinonoid and polyphenolic biopolymers are described as the most important constituents of truffle pigments. Both alkali-soluble and insoluble fractions of peridium and gleba tissues of truffles of the genus Tuber have been investigated. All the data collected suggest that these black pigments are allomelanins of polyketide origin.
