Dear we have a manual printing press as we have to fulfill the demand of one of our worthy client, I am desirous of developing a edible ink which should incur minimum drying time.
Actually we want to print Smilyes etc on surface of :lollipop: lollipop.
I am curiously looking to hearing from you about it. Thanks

Hello,

you can develop an edible in by using water, alcohol, sorbitol and food colorant.

But important point is that you need to have an absorbent surface to apply edible ink on the food. The surface of food must de absorb the ink.

I think lollipop surface can not absorb the ink.

For this you can try 2 things.

  1. Try adding a good sticky / absorbent agent in ink as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose.

  2. Try coating your product with a agent as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose to create absorbent surface.
