Exploration of 3D food printing and its application for tailored military rations – Presented by Mary Scerra, US Army Natick Soldier Research

Exploration of 3D food printing and its application for tailored military rations – Presented by Mary Scerra, US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, at the 3D Food Printing Conference, Jun 28, Brightlands Campus, Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.

3D printing technology for food continues to advance. This technology uniquely offers customizability, which is as yet an unexploited advantage for fulfilling an individual’s preferences or specific nutritional needs. The potential relevance of this technology for application to military field feeding is currently being investigated.

Consumer judgements of the sensory characteristics and concept acceptability of 3D printed food were recently measured, showing both high approval of the product and general acceptance of the technology. While food, with its complex and varied composition and rheological behavior, is a relatively challenging media to 3D print, we have demonstrated that systematically modifying the material properties of the matrices aids in their printability.

Application of this technology to military field feeding could in the future provide highly tailored ration components that meet the Warfighter’s real-time nutritional needs and preferences. Furthermore, placement of 3D printers on or near the battlefield could be logistically beneficial by reducing reliance on typical thermostabilized ration components, which have a mandated 3 year shelf life, and in which quality can degrade over time.

About Flam3D
3D printing or ‘additive manufacturing’ is a collection of technologies that make up a product (‘printed’) from a base stock, usually layer per layer. New markets are emerging as the production rates increase and more potential raw materials get developed. It is widely accepted that 3D printing will have a major impact on the way goods are produced and transported. The technology also offers huge opportunities for sustainable production.

About Network for Food Experts
The NVVL – Network for Food Experts – is a meeting point for everyone working within the field of nutrition, from dietitian to technologist and to marketer of nutritional food. It is an active professional association by and, more importantly, for food experts with nearly 500 members. Our aim is to exchange knowledge and experience in an educational and relaxed environment. This bridge we fulfil by discussing current themes that are relevant to both industry and government, research and training. We accomplish these discussions by organizing meetings, but also by introducing the dissemination of information and online dialogue on an individual basis. Most activities that are organized are accessible only to NVVL members. These are informal and inspiring meetings where we meet as colleagues and together can discuss a topical theme. These sessions offer a good opportunity to gain new insights and share experiences. The meetings are held at varying locations. In addition, the NVVL encourages emerging talent through the NVVL-year prices. Continue reading “3D Food Printing Conferences welcomes Network for Food Experts as Media Partner”
