3D PRINTING OF CHOCOLATE
La Miam Factory has developped its own 3D printer that fulfills the food regulations and gives access to various shapes made of different food materials, including chocolate. This offer benefits from the research done in the Smart Gastronomy Lab.
Today, the use of chocolate as the food matrix leads to the obtention of innovative shapes that cannot be achieved by conventional techniques used in chocolate manufacturing (such as molding). The chocolate employed is free of additives, can be of different nature (white, blond, milk, dark), and can be provided of various brands. The chocolate we employ is in fact strictly the same as the one you use for your pastries.
The advantages of using a 3D chocolate printer are numerous:
- obtention of innovative shapes, unachievable
- useful for small productions
- fast prototyping
