High-tech recipe for perfectly preserved praline

 EU-funded research on chocolate can help save the industry up to €1.2 billion a year


A research project, ProPraline, has found concrete technical solutions to extend the shelf life of chocolate.

This new formula for long-lasting pralines prevents chocolate shell cracks and "fat bloom" - a grey discoloration of the praline's surface which reduces the shelf life.

The European chocolate industry may save up to €1.2 billion a year.
