There being a legal distinction between "flavour" and flavoured" in UK food labelling laws it was quite clear from the main label, which one mine was when I bought it. Caveat emptor!
The last time I was offered an imported, white truffle, It was $400.00 and the size was close to that of a tennis ball.
