    Hi Madeline. Yes, they’re very different. The truffle sauce is a tomato sauce, much like a Napoletana sauce, infused with black truffles. The truffle oil is quite concentrated and should be used sparingly. It is perfect for finishing a dish, drizzling over salads, pasta, risotto especially, or grilled meat. I hope that helps.
