Infusion Technology Used to Create Strawberries That Taste Like Chocolate

January 4, 2008


These aren’t just ordinary strawberries. They’re actually composites of chocolate and berries created by an infusion technology, adapted for produce by a company called FCOM by freeze-drying the fruit, removing water components, and then sinking chocolate in between its fibers. It’s a technique commonly used in industrial manufacturing for fusing metals. The strawberries are just for fun, but the company’s hoping to apply the same strategies to create vitamin-infused fruits and mineral-infused rice for youngsters and elderlies reluctant to get their nutrition otherwise.
