As a result of the development, the engineers managed to print chocolates with liquid filling on a 3D printer.
Experts say that such a technology can fundamentally change the state of affairs in the confectionery industry.
Researchers at Singapore University of Technology and Design have decided to create food grade 3D printing materials.
It was based on ingredients such as cocoa and chocolate paste, as well as chocolate syrup. With their help, engineers printed several confectionery products. The experiment showed that 3D printing technology allows you to combine materials with different properties.
Engineers found that at the same time you can send to print candy with a hard shell and liquid filling.
