So how can you conclude anything about the nutritional content of truffles by themselves based on that?
You are absolutely right. STRIKE THAT CITATION. Jeez, it's summer truffles in that mess to boot, not even the good ones (of course since its some godawful preparation).

New rule: Use USDA nutrition database in OP unless you come up with a better one.

So: the USDA one is all over the map on mushrooms, but has none for that lovely tuber. Either we pick a different food mushroom and consider them all the same, or leave it open for further research. (I'll check the French language sources; surely they are out there.)

In the meantime, here's the site of the International Society for Mushroom Science to explore, and a bunch of individual citations from mushroominfo on nutrition science research. Their overview on "benefits."
