3D food printing offers potential for building a variety of food structures in a highly controlled way. Multiple materials with different consistency, flavour or colour can be included and distributed accurately in a food sample.
Texture and flavour perception of food is largely determined by physical processes in the mouth during eating. The way structures in the food are broken down depends on physiological factors, such as saliva secretion or dental status, but also on the mechanical properties of the food. Models exist to describe this breakdown and predict particle size distributions and flavour release during mastication.

by Benedikt Daschner, chocolate³
In this presentation you will have the chance to take a closer look at chocolate printing. Starting withe the idea behind it you will be presented with the answer to the following questions: What’s currently possible? How did we get there? Where will this be going? What makes our approach different? Why is chocolate the “perfect” media for food printing?

by Giuseppe Scionti, Founder & CEO, NOVAMEAT
NOVAMEAT developed a unique technology that allows producing plant-based meat substitutes able to mimic the texture, taste, appearance and nutritional properties of animal meat products, using only natural ingredients of non-animal origin, and a customized 3D printer.
This new invention combines tissue engineering and state-of-the-art knowledge in bioprinting with modern gastronomic strategies, creating a unique technology able to generate foods with high protein content, with the characteristic fibrous consistency of meat, and without the need of using soy or wheat-gluten derived ingredients.

by Rob van de Langenberg, HAS Hogeschool
HAS University of applied science, in particular the professorship Design Methods in Food has been researching 3D food printing for over 3 years.
In this presentation the outcome will be presented of the current research, which focusses on building viable 3D food printing business cases. Two business cases are being researched: the first one is using 3D food printing of everyday food for (elderly) people with chewing and swallowing problems, and the second one is a startup enterprise that provides business-to-business services for events and catering.
The research is conducted together with two partner companies: byFlow and De Verspillingsfabriek.

Presented by Mathijs de Schipper, Research Scientist / Innovator at TNO.
3D Food Printing is a promising new technology that offers great possibilities for the creation of improved or new food products and an disruptive food supply chain. Ultimately, this technology may provide a decentralized food manufacturing for fully personalized food products.
This presentation will discuss the state of the art of foodprinting technology at TNO and WFBR (Wageningen Food & Biobased Research) and the use case of making personalized food for the Dutch Ministry of Defense.

Roisin Burke, Technological University Dublin (formerly Dublin Institute of Technology), will speak at 3D Food Printing Conference, which takes place during AgriFood Innovation Event, June 26-27, Venlo, The Netherlands.
A novel application of Molecular Gastronomy called Note-by-Note cooking (NbN) provides a way of developing customised foods. It involves the creation and design of novel foods by using compounds, either pure or in mixtures, rather than traditional food ingredients.
These are assembled by the chef who designs the shapes, colours, tastes, odours, temperatures, trigeminal stimulation, textures, nutritional aspects, and more of the desired food.
In this way the foods can be tailored to match specific sensorial and nutritional requirements. 3D printed foods developed from NbN recipes offer a promising solution to customising and personalising foods to meet the growing markets of the future.Using the 3D printer facilitates the possibility to improve the textural properties of NbN foods.
Results will be presented of 3D printed foods which were developed using the principles of Note by Note cooking.

Laser cooking: re-imagining the culinary experience – Presented by Jonathan Blutinger, Columbia University, at the 3D Food Printing Conference 2019, which takes place during AgriFood Innovation Event, June 26-27, Venlo, The Netherlands.
3D food printers have the ability to combine edible ingredients in new and complex ways, giving rise to tailored nutrition on a per person basis. Now that we can make custom food products, how are we expected to cook them? Jonathan’s ongoing research in laser cooking provides a solution to this problem.

Coaxial extrusion-based printing for designing foods having personalized properties – Presented by Valerie Vancauwenberghe, PhD, Post-Doc, KU Leuven, MeBioS division, Belgium, on June 28, at the 3D Food Printing Conference, during the Agri-Food Innovation Event 2018 at Brightlands Campus, Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.
Low methoxylated pectin gel is a promising food-ink for the 3D printing of healthy candy having variable textural and structural properties. However, the actual printing method based on simple extrusion requires an incubation post-treatment in calcium solution in order to complete the gelation of printed objects. Coaxial printing can avoid the need of post-treatment by accurately controlling the gelation of printed pectin objects through the simultaneous deposition of pectin ink and crosslink solution.
Coaxial extrusion-based printing can be applied for more food products than pectin gels and thus, could innovate and bring more possibilities in the personalization of printed foods.

Powderbased 3D food printing technologies – Presented by Martijn Noort, Wageningen Food & Biobased Research at the 3D Food Printing Conference, Jun 28, Brightlands Campus, Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.
Besides FDM/extrusion printing also powder based techniques such as Powder Bed Printing (PBP) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) offer potential for food production. Main advantages of powderbased printing are the higher degrees of 3D design freedom and scalability. Furthermore, these techniques offer unique potential to control the local composition as well as the physical state of the food product structure on a voxel base. This presentation gives an overview of the current state of the art of powder based food printing technologies and their added value over conventional food manufacturing.
