Melanie Senger of University of Applied Science Weihenstephan-Triesdorf, and Mathias Kück and Astrid Jäger of Biozoon GmbH will present during the 3D Food Printing Conference: “Personalised food concepts and the future of food production”.
3D food printing makes personalisation of food for the first time economically feasible. This leads to the possibility to provide everybody who requires (or wants) it with individually tailor-made food according every individual needs. Which fields of modern nutrition may be implemented (more easily) by means of 3 D Food Printing? Through the example of developing process of personalised meals for the EU-project PERFORMANCE, the challenges of personalized food production (e.g regarding material properties, software, logistics) will be discussed.
