A. Because a shortage of truffles has sent prices soaring, Correct

B. Because of soaring prices for truffles, which is due to a shortage,

"Prices for" is wrong. Also, meaning has changed. "Which" is wrongly modifying "truffles".

C. Because truffle prices have been sent soaring, which resulted from a shortage,

It seems some person has done the action of soaring of prices.

D. Due to soaring truffle prices from a shortage,

Use of "due to" is wrong. It means " Caused by soaring truffle price...., the farm". Wrong.

E. Due to a shortage, with the result that truffle prices have been sent soaring

Total mess..
