Designing a Healthy Food Ink: Importance of Food Materials Science and Engineering – Presented by Bhesh Bhandari, University of Queensland

Designing a Healthy Food Ink: Importance of Food Materials Science and Engineering – Presented by Bhesh Bhandari, The University of Queensland at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Designing and formulating a food ink for the layer-by-layer printing practiced in creating a 3D construct need a sound knowledge of food materials science and engineering. Depending on the type and printing mechanism used the food ink system should have known properties to enable it to be printed and support its structure during printing and post-processing conditions. The manipulation of food microstructure becomes even more important if a fourth dimension is introduced to the 3D constructs. This presentation will highlight the essential physico-chemical properties of healthy food ink for layer-by-layer deposition.

3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong

3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Food Layered Manufacturing (FLM) has been widely investigated for its potential to combat various issues in the food industry. For a food item to be FLM compatible, it must possess suitable rheological properties to allow for its extrusion and to keep its 3D printed structure. We present a rheological analysis of two commercially available breakfast spreads, Vegemite and Marmite, and show their compatibility with FLM in producing 3D structures and attractive food presentations onto toasted bread substrates. The inherent conductivity of the breakfast spreads was used to print edible circuits onto a “breadboard.” Continue reading “3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong”

Can Exercise and Chocolate go hand in hand? – Presented by Rohit Ashok Khot, Exertion Games Lab, RMIT University

Can Exercise and Chocolate go hand in hand? – Presented by Rohit Ashok Khot, Exertion Games Lab, RMIT University at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

A common perception about exercise and chocolate is that they do not complement one another. A healthy body should perform regular exercise and should not indulge in sweet temptations like chocolate. I break this perception by presenting a playful system called EdiPulse. EdiPulse translates self-monitored data from a physical activity into small 3D printed chocolate treats that come in moderate amount and offer playful reflections on one’s active life. Through EdiPulse, I underscore two emerging fields of interest: quantified self and food printing to inspire individuals towards achieving their fitness related goals.

IMAGINE – Presented by Claire Smith, Forbes Meisner

IMAGINE – Presented by Claire Smith, Forbes Meisner Pty Ltd at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Dr Dennis Waitley, whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, once said, ‘You have all the reasons in your world to achieve your grandest dreams. Innovation, plus imagination equals realisation.’

Imagination is the starting point of all great innovation.

We are only just beginning to realise the global-future for 3D food printing and its’ potential to provide exciting, groud-breaking opportunities in food innovation. There are  so many possibilities for this technology; everything from solving world-food-crises to designing fabulous wedding cakes at ‘off-the-shelf’ prices. The next great chapter in the history of food. Continue reading “IMAGINE – Presented by Claire Smith, Forbes Meisner”
