2D-Printed Drink Discs

Effusio Makes Eco-Friendly Discs That Dissolve in Hot & Cold Liquids

— July 22, 2020 — Lifestyle
While people may be familiar with the concept of adding dissolvable pods and pucks to create flavorful drinks, Effusio is pushing the envelope on this idea with 2D-printed functional drink discs. Effusio is on a mission to leverage 2D technology to provide healthier and more environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional beverages.

Effusio will be launching its first product in the fall, introducing a convenient way for people to receive essential vitamins, minerals, and complex nutrients in either hot or cold liquids. As co-founder Paul Jacobson describes, "In a world where consumers are mired by overly processed sports drinks, energy drinks, smart waters, soy beverages, and kombuchas, these dissolvable discs are an environmentally sound, contemporary solution for receiving essential nutrients, without any unnecessary ingredients."
