Pic of the Day: Chocolate printed in 3D

Chocolate printed in 3D

The next step in the food revolution: 3D printing.

Belgian chocolate shop Miam Factory uses specialized 3D printers to produce chocolate objects, such as the featured chocolate bottle, to order.

The company developed out of the University of Liege’s Smart Gastronomy Lab, which specializes in researching technology in the food and beverages sector.

The printer works layer by layer, at 0.2mm at a time, and can take anywhere between 10 minutes and three hours to print an object.

The company receives orders from various sectors, such as hotels, businesses and even individual customers. Prices vary, depending on the object and chocolate required.

Dark chocolate is requested most often, but milk and white chocolate options are also available.
