Truffles are rare wild growing edible mushrooms belonging to Ascomycetes. In this paper, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was used to obtain vibrational spectra of truffles. The results show that the mushrooms exhibit characteristic spectra. The two strongest absorption bands appear at about 1077cm-1 and 1040 cm-1, which were described as C-O stretching in carbohydrate. The vibrational spectra indicate that the main compositions of the truffles are polysaccharide and protein. According to the characteristics bands and absorption ratios of spectra, different species of truffles can be discriminated. It is also found the great changes between moldy and healthy truffles, which the major differences are observed in the bands of protein. In addition, FTIR spectral differences are observed between the same species of truffles from different producing areas. It is showed that the FTIR spectroscopic method is valuable tool for rapid and nondestructive analysis of truffles prior to any extraction method used.
