Two 3D printers that will launch later this year will make chocolate and sweets, BBC News reported January 8th. The article, “CES 2014: 3D food printers create sweets and chocolates,” noted the two machines, which have been unveiled in Las Vegas, will make chocolate and sugar-based confectionery shaped in ways that would be difficult to produce using traditional methods. US firm 3D Systems showed off the machines at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and chief executive Avi Reichental commented that he believes the smaller of the two printers could be used by restaurants and bakeries.

Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine investigated the health benefits of Kuna cocoa. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘There are a number of health concerns that are brought up with standard chocolate that you buy in stores – you could probably think of a few of them yourself. One is clearly that it is very high in sugar, and any doctor will tell you that sugar is something you need to cut back on. Another is the increased levels of fat...and yet, it has been clear for a long time that the cacao bean does have some very positive aspects for your health.’ (

Yourwellness Magazine explained that the Kuna Indians have been shown to have an impressively low average blood pressure and incidence of age-related increase in blood pressure. Death rates from cardiovascular disease and cancer (which are the top killers in Western societies) have been shown to be virtually nil among the Kuna people. Yourwellness Magazine noted that the Kuna consume more than four cups of cocoa-based drink every day. This cocoa is not the store bought kind, but is locally grown and has not been fermented or roasted. Yourwellness Magazine advised readers who want to enjoy the same benefits the Kuna experience to order raw, organic cacao beans online.
