Coaxial extrusion-based printing for designing foods having personalized properties – Presented by Valerie Vancauwenberghe, MeBios, KU Leuven

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.

Innovation in food and agriculture has come a long way in the past century, resulting in the production of more food than ever before. However, the food industry is facing new challenges due to rapid societal changes: in 2040 there will be 9 billion people to feed; there is an increasing demand for personalized, nutritious, and healthy food; and food production should be done in an affordable way without harming the environment. Radical innovations are required to meet the demands of the near future. 3D printing provides the food industry the opportunity to adapt and change their production processes.
