Do you ever wish you could turn every day food in into spherical edible beads? Well if you answered yes then you are in luck! Imperial spherificator has created a product that basically turns any kind of liquid food into these little caviar beads. How does it work? Spherification is created by taking liquid food and sodium alginate, which is dispensed into a water and calcium chloride mix. This process creates a chemical reaction in which the outer layer of this liquid creates a soft outer membrane. The imperial spherificator is not the first to create this type of gastronomical creation but there device is one of the first to produce these beads at a rapid pace.
Bring your dinner parties to the next level with the brand new Spherificator. It allows you to turn virtually any liquid into caviar-shaped pearls! The Spherificator is the world’s first automatic pearl former – a hand-held device that will produce up to 10kg of pearls every day. This is a great tool for foodies, chefs, bartenders, and anyone who loves to entertain! You can find this product on Amazon here.
