Dairy ingredients such as milk proteins have structure-forming capabilities and are, therefore, suitable ingredients for 3D food printing. In the cheese-making process, during the curdling step, milk proteins coagulate and form a gel (curd) produced by the action of rennet (a substance typically found in a calf’s stomach). The consistency and coagulation speed of the milk curd can be controlled by factors such as protein content, pH, salt concentration and temperature.Continue reading “Adapting the curdling process of cheese for 3D printing of protein-fortified milk”
For the production of highly customized and reproducible food textures, 3D printing presents a novel texturing approach due to its high accuracy and precision. Assembling of food foam structures using periodic and repetitive closed-cell bubble configurations presents a new approach for obtaining pre-designed textural properties. For printing food structures with specific textural properties, a phenomenological model was developed where the material and foam parameters can be autonomously determined according to the desired hardness levels.Continue reading “Texture control and modulation of 3D food assemblies: bubble distributions for altering the deformation behavior”
Novel fabrication strategies by using additive manufacturing systems have revolutionized important industry sectors thanks to their ability to create objects, constructs and ultimately products. Due to the advantages of functionalization, customization, personalized nutrition design, simplified supply chain and broadening existing food materials, 3D printing has been extensively studied in the food sector during the past decade. While more applications, formats, and end-products are getting explored, the availability of industrial printer models and tool-sets that cover the necesities of the food printing processes are developed.Continue reading “Technologies, Tools and Systems for Rethinking the Food of Today and Inventing the Tastes of the Future”

3D food printing is a futuristic technology that consists of additive manufacturing to create personalized and creative food products. 3D printing can deliver a product that adapts to specific consumption, texture, taste, cost, practicality, and nutrition. Extrusion-type 3D printing is the most common for the production of printed foods, as it is easy to process and allows the use of different types of materials (called “food inks”).Continue reading “Starch-based inks for 3D food printing application”
The traditional production of foods based on solid open-cell foams is highly complex. Thereby, a creation of a bulk phase of complex polymer-particle systems, partly the inflation and material-depended gas holding capacity and its final stabilization to the open-cell foam shows this complexity. All these parameters influence the cellular structure of the food and its functionality in terms of texture. This texture appears as a sensory property and a multi-parameter attribute. Additive manufacturing enables a complete redesign of such traditional food processes and enables especially in a scientific point of view entirely new possibilities for the understanding of the current production of foods.Continue reading “3D food printing – an emerging technology delivers novel insights in traditional food science”

It is well known that 3D food printing holds many promises for making customized foods with attractive shapes, tailored texture properties, and personalized nutritional value. Even though numerous studies demonstrated instrumental texture properties could be influenced by structure modifications of 3D printed foods, no study to date described the impact of these structure modifications on sensory texture perception.Continue reading “How 3D printing can be used to alter sensory perception of food products”
