Multi component food products – the next evolutionary step in 3D food printing? – Presented by Johannes Heringlehner, University of Applied Science Weihenstephan Triesdorf at the 3D Food Printing Conference, which takes place on June 28, 2017, at Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.
The universal multi extrusion 3D food printing systems (with 2 or more food printing heads) presented within the talk will be able to solve 2 major challenges of 3D food printing. This is on one hand the fact, that most conventional food products are formed from 2 or more different components, on the other hand the printing speed of the present 3D food printers does generally not meet the requirements for professional applications. Several example for high resolution multi component 3D food printing will be presented (3D printed food objects with multiple centers as well as food components enriched in different nutrients). In addition, large series production of individual food products will be presented.

About Institute of Food Technology, University of Applied Science Weihenstephan Triesdorf
3D food printing is one major research focus at the Institute of Food Technology. Within the last 5 years, more than 30 different printable food products from the most important food categories (meat & bakery products, pasta, chocolate, confectionary, fruit & vegetable products) have successfully been developed.
What, When, Where: The 3D Food Printing Conference, Jun 28, 2017, Villa Flora, Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo, The Netherlands.
The 3D Food Printing Conference is part of the first global Innovative Food-Agri Event – a two-day event (Jun 28-29, 2017) that includes 4 dedicated conferences and an exhibition:
- 3D FoodPrinting Conference (Jun 28, 2017)
- Vertical Farming Conference (Jun 28, 2017)
- Healthy Nutrition Conference, (Jun 29 2017)
- Smart Farming Conference (Jun 29, 2017)
- Smart Food Farming Expo (Jun 28-29, 2017)
Scope: As with all 3D printing applications and aspects, 3D Food Printing is a huge hype. The 3D printing technology will be fundamental to the way people interact with food in the future. Supermarkets are already testing to 3D print customized cakes, restaurants are offering printed desserts. Some even claim that there will be a 3D food printer in every home in just two years. However, much research is required to change the hype into reality. Which industries will be influenced by the technology? Which food components can be printed in the near future? And which aspects should be taken into account to ensure safety and maintainability of 3D printed food? The 3D Food Printing Conference will answer this kind of questions.
